In our desire to equip parents as they “train their children up in the way they should go,” we have created a blog series to communicate the lessons our kids will be learning each Sunday, family verses to memorize together, and resources to help you as the parent to disciple your children.
The word “disciple” means to intentionally impact the life of someone in the direction of being more like Jesus.
Disciples follow Jesus and help others follow Him too.
Every week faithful servants enter into the disciple-making process with Renew Kids.
There are now FOUR classes every Sunday:
- Nursery (birth-2yrs),
- Preschool (ages 3-4yrs),
- Primary (ages 5-7yrs), and
- Challenge (ages 8-10yrs)
All of us begin the gathering together to sing, listen, and pray as a whole church family.
This Week’s Family Verse: Servant Of All
Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “if anyone wants to be first, he must be very last, and the servant of all.”
Family Verses & Scripture Songs
We’re connecting Scripture meditation (memory verses) to singing. Music is a great way to help us memorize, hide God’s Word in our hearts, and to have fun doing it. Our family verses will be from the Seeds Family Worship. We are listening to Seeds of Encouragement and are on song #6: Servant of All.

Our curriculum for the Primary class comes from The Gospel Project for Kids and will immerse our kids in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when our children experience the gospel. Through The Gospel Project for Kids, our kids will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
Unit Focus: The God Who Sends
In time, Paul, who was one of the greatest missionaries of all time, took the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the Roman empire, growing the church even more. God’s promise to bless all the people of the earth was being fulfilled.
Unit Key Passage:
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Session Focus: Paul’s conversion and baptism
Bible Passage: Acts 9:1-25
Main Point: Jesus saved Saul from his sins and chose him to spread the gospel.
Big Picture Question: How do people hear about Jesus? God uses Christians to tell others about Jesus so they may repent and be saved.
Christ Connection: Jesus appeared to Saul and changed him inside and out. Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. (1 Timothy 1:15) Jesus called Saul, also known as Paul, who was once an enemy to Christians, to spend the rest of his life telling people the gospel and leading them to trust Jesus as Lord and Savior.
The Challenge Class will be continuing their study this week on the Gospel of Luke. Luke gives a detailed account about the birth of Christ and the theme of Luke’s gospel is Christ, the Son of Man, and it narrates many of those events that demonstrated Christ’s humanity. In the Challenge Class we focus on learning to study and read the bible and learn what God is trying to tell us through scripture.
This week we will be continuing our study on the Gospel of Luke and will focus on Luke 8: 19-38. This part of Luke is where Jesus talks about his true family, calms the storm, and heals a demon possessed man. The Challenge Class will also be memorizing the Seeds of Worship song Servant Of All.
Scripture Memory Verse (Servant Of All)
Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “if anyone wants to be first, he must be very last, and the servant of all.
In the Challenge Class we really encourage the kids to ask questions and think about how the scripture is alive for them today. We would really like encourage the parents to continue to model this at home with open ended questions about the scripture we are studying. The goal of the Challenge Class is for the kids to be able to read and study the bible themselves with the help of their parents and teachers as they grow in Christ.
