Introducing I Will Build My Church, a Midweek Bible curriculum for children about God’s family, communicating the essence and purpose of Jesus’ church, along with its regular practices.
Much has been said in recent years about teaching the Old Testament from a distinctly Christian perspective — seeing Jesus and the Gospel in all of Scripture--but does that mean every lesson should make a beeline to the cross?
Truth78 curriculum workbooks, notebooks, and journals create a lasting, “theological picture album” for your children and students. They are not merely busywork or fun engagement for the students but are designed to reflect the core truths taught throughout each study. They invite children to interact with Bible texts, provide activities that reinforce the main ideas, ask questions for personal reflection and, most importantly, are an integral part of the classroom Small Group Application time.
Imagine a new child coming to your fourth-grade Sunday school class. He has a motorized wheelchair. He cannot speak intelligible words. His eyes, when open, seem to wander aimlessly. But, every once and a while, he seems to focus on a face or a sound. He smiles. Sometimes he lets out an excited “Ha, ha!” This young boy was in my class many years ago. And his presence, while challenging at times, turned out to be a precious gift to me and his classmates.
What is the ultimate reason for discipling the next generations? To what end should parents, ministry leaders, teachers, and volunteers devote wholehearted effort? Years from now, what should we long for our children and students to express with genuine conviction, earnestness, and joy?
Recently, we received a terrific idea from someone who had purchased The Greatest Treasure mini booklet: Why not create a poster set based on each 2-page layout from the booklet? These would be a wonderful resource for classrooms. Our team all agreed that this was an excellent idea and quickly went to work on the project. We are pleased to announce that The Greatest Treasure Poster Set is now available.
Times are changing at record speed. How are Christians to keep up and rightly respond? How do we adequately prepare our children and youth to stand firm and not be swayed by the deceptions of this present darkness? First and foremost, we must confidently and continuously ground them in the eternal and unchanging TRUTH of GOD’S WORD, which has absolute authority over EVERY aspect and sphere of life.
This past Sunday in our corporate worship service, I saw and heard some of the following…
Truth78 takes its name from Psalm 78, which captures the heart of our ministry and fuels our passion for the comprehensive discipleship of the next generation. We have also established Psalm 78 Day on July 8 of each year to remind us of the privilege and responsibility of every follower of Jesus Christ to faithfully pass along the truth about God—His will, His work, His ways, His salvation, and His glory—to the next generations. We thought it would be fitting to commemorate this day by presenting the first of a three-part series on Psalm 78, so that you might meditate on the first eight verses of this great psalm with us and be encouraged as we pursue the joy of the next generation together.
Being seriously committed to the discipleship of the next generation means being seriously committed to praying regularly, earnestly, and biblically for the faith of the next generation. How can the church and parents become more committed to this kind of prayerful dependency on God?
