Wonder about Holy Week with the unit Last Things. Help children celebrate Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Help children consider why we need rules and what role they play in our society as you learn about the greatest commandment that Jesus teaches. Reflect on how important it is to help others and how that helps us see Jesus. Look for ways we can help others in our own community. Explore the Passover meal what you eat, what it meant for Jesus and his disciples, how communion is connected to this meal. Children hear the story of Jesus' death, in an age-appropriate way, to understand that we can only know the joy of the resurrection if we know that he died and was buried. Help children walk through Holy Week with you using Growing in God's Love: A Story Bible Curriculum unit Last Things.

• Jesus Visits Jerusalem (Luke 19:29–40)

Growing in God’s Love: A Story Bible Curriculum invites children and their leaders to wonder, play, and connect with one another as they develop a better relationship with God. By exploring the stories in Growing in God’s Love: A Story Bible, children and their leaders learn more about who God is and what their relationship is with God. This curriculum has 35 units filled with 148 stories from the story Bible that dive deep into characters and themes in the Bible. Children and their leader will read the story together from the story Bible, pause to allow the story to resonate, and then engage with the story and wrestle with their place in that story.

Growing in God’s Love: A Story Bible Curriculum is written for ages 5–10 and is intentionally multiage, meaning that children are all grouped together. Grouping children this way brings a relational focus to the sessions and fosters a collaborative spirit. The curriculum also includes an intergenerational component with four suggestions for intergenerational and home ideas for each session within a unit. Those ideas include suggestions for things to do in worship, more education-focused ideas, ways to connect with one another, and mission ideas. This adds another dimension to learning and helps the children connect to the congregation, creating a holistic approach to children’s ministry.
