Faith for Life
Did you know that around 75% of young adults raised in the church stop attending after high school? That is why now, more than ever, we need to equip our children in their formative years to connect personally with the Bible in a way that builds a foundation for lifelong faith.
Mission 2:20 doesn’t just teach Bible stories and moral lessons; ministry leaders are equipped to apply the faith of people in the Bible to a child’s everyday life.
Mission 2:20 is perfect for any weekend or Wednesday night class. Each lesson is written at age-appropriate levels for early, middle, and upper elementary students. It is easy to teach and takes students through two years of material during the fall, winter, and spring seasons.
The first series of lessons in the Fall curriculum takes children through 13 old testament narratives. By the end of the series, students learn 20 biblical truths, character traits that they can begin to implement in their own lives, and a memory verse. These lessons and the 20 biblical truths have been tested and proven to capture the attention of elementary-aged kids through Summit’s homeschool and Christian school curricula. The use of play and memorization gives students tools to remember their lessons and apply them in their everyday lives.
You can teach each quarter, or even each lesson, independently from one another. Although this is possible, we encourage children’s programs to adopt a full year (fall, winter, and spring) in order for students to receive teaching that builds from lesson to lesson and story to story. This allows students to see the whole story of the Bible as one narrative rather than separated stories. This compounding approach will result in the most transformation in students over the course of the year.
Special holiday lessons are included for appropriate times of the year.
Ephesians 2:20 “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.”
Starting with foundational beliefs and growing into lifelong, flourishing faith. This curriculum builds a student’s faith and is centered around Christ Jesus.
Parents are encouraged to keep the lessons going throughout the week. We firmly believe that parents should be a child’s primary teacher. To help parents participate in their children’s spiritual education, we have included Parent Letters with each lesson. Parent Letters include:
