Elementary Sessions Overview
The six elementary track lessons are designed for 1st graders through 6 graders. The elementary track includes lesson plans for your teachers, fun animations, a song and music video, and activities and handouts. Each lesson students will learn:
- a big idea
- a memory verse
- a Bible story
Use the Parent Guide to talk to your kids about relationships
We believe that the lessons learned at church should be continued in the home. The Parent Guide makes this so simple. We’ve designed a book that provides parents with an overview of what their kids are learning in their Relationship Goals lessons as well as questions that they can discuss at home to reinforce the lesson content and dig deeper with their kids.
From a Children’s Ministry Pastor
Our volunteers and kids really enjoyed the Relationship Goals Curriculum from the very beginning! Our teachers appreciated how the Biblical story incorporated each of the relational steps of the RAM and helped children understand a deeper meaning of something like “know” or “trust”while applying it to their relationships. Our kids really engaged in the activities that made them think actively about the specific content like the Quilts in the KNOW section.
Our teachers loved how the lessons were laid out. We use Think Orange lessons during the year and so the familiarity with a similar layout eased the transition. We also had access to the complementary worship song about the RAM that reinforced each lesson… the quality was outstanding.
We have 4 campuses, and each one is a different size, so we had to adjust certain activities depending on the size of class. However, Dr. John and his team were always available for questions and ideas to make it just the right fit.
One of the best items was the in-class R.A.M. chart that helped kids visualize each lesson. And though we did not use the Parent Guide, I believe looking back, I would have purchased it since our adults were going through the sermon series at the same time in Large Church… then every family would have had talking points at home.
I highly recommend the Relationship Goals Curriculum for you Kid’s Ministry to create a healthier family ministry and a better partnership with families as they make their homes a place for spiritual growth.
