Lead children on a journey to discover 10 essential truths of the gospel, which culminate in the greatest treasure of all.
This small (24-page) full-color booklet has been designed to help children discover 10 essential truths of the gospel, leading to the greatest treasure of all—enjoying God Himself forevermore! Each two-page spread includes a simple truth statement, supporting Scriptures, a brief explanation and call for personal application, and an accompanying illustration to summarize and reinforce the truth learned.

The parables of Jesus contain glorious, life-changing truth. But the beauty and worth of God’s truth is hidden from those who have blind eyes and a divided heart.
Using hidden treasure as a metaphor for spiritual truth, this study of kingdom parables exalts God alone as the source of spiritual sight and an undivided heart. The goal of this curriculum is to awaken spiritual interest in children, so that they might seek after the hidden treasure of God and find their satisfaction in Him.
Things Hidden contains five lessons on the Kingdom parables, complete with colorful visuals and application discussion questions. Optional activities include fun activities, games, and worksheets, as well as a student project that can be worked on throughout the duration of the curriculum. Things Hidden is ideal to be taught in a VBS (Vacation Bible School) or BYBC (Backyard Bible Club) setting.
To assist leaders in discussing the gospel at a deeper level with the children they interact with, the booklet Helping Children to Understand the Gospel is included in the kit.
