Children's Church Curriculum

“Children Desiring God: The ABC’s of God”

In the classroom for preschool through second-grade students, City Church's children's ministry uses a series entitled, "The ABCs of God." It is "a study for children on the greatness and worth of God." It uses the alphabet as a framework for learning the attributes of God and other terms that describe His character, at an age-appropriate level. (Note that attributes are purposefully not taught in alphabetical order.) Each lesson asks and answers three key questions, "Who is God?" "What is He like?" and "How should I act toward Him?" as it presents a theology of God for children. Through the use of a teaching aid called “The Blessing Box,” students will discover a new attribute of God each week and will be challenged to consider how they should respond to an amazing God who is worthy of their greatest love, honor, trust, and obedience.

“Children Desiring God: A Sure Foundation”

In the classroom for 12-month-olds through 3 years old, and in the nursery for newborns through 12-month-olds, City Church's children's ministry uses a series entitled "A Sure Foundation," which has pieces geared toward both babies and toddlers. For babies, "The Fragrance of the Knowledge of Christ establishes the philosophy of ministering in infant nurseries and creates an environment centered on prayer for each baby." And young toddlers "are taught four repeating Bible stories and monthly memory verses along with truth statements about God's character in The Wonders He Has Done"(Nelson, 2017).
