God is calling people to be part of His family. Through the death of Jesus on the cross, He has made a way for sinners to be pardoned from sin and to be His children. Through the lives of various people in the Bible, children will discover different means God uses to call people to faith in Him. The goal of this curriculum is to make children aware of God’s call, to encourage them to respond in faith, and to warn them not to harden their hearts.
The Call of God contains five lessons on both God’s general and effective call, complete with colorful visuals and application discussion questions. Optional activities include learning activities, games, and worksheets, as well as a student project that can be worked on for the duration of the curriculum.

• God calls the Ethiopian through the Word
• God calls Lydia through Paul
