Jesus Teaches
Explore the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus teaches us about blessing, salt and light, The Lord's Prayer, and worrying less. The Beatitudes are a great teaching to share with children to help enrich their understanding of blessing. Jesus talks about being the best versions of ourselves that we can be, so this encourages children to think about things that are made better with salt and light. Learn about The Lord's Prayer and other ways of praying. Finally, Jesus Teaches reminds children that God helps us with our worries so we should ask God for help.

Stories included in this unit:

• A Blessing Map (Matthew 5:1–12)
Salt and Light for Our World (Matthew 5:13–16)
The Lord's Prayer (Luke 11:1–4)
Don't Worry (Matthew 6:25–34)

Listening for God has an at-home kit guide as an accompanying download found at the bottom of this page. This guide helps you put together a kit of supplies and activities from this unit for families to do at home. Equip families for doing at-home faith formation with the at-home kit guide.

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.
