August Faith Curriculum
"And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man." Luke 2:52. This Bible verse is the basis for Holy Cross's weekly faith curriculum is called 252 Basics. This curriculum for schools and churches to foster character education development in kids as they grow in:
- Wisdom - I need to make the wise choice.
- Faith - I can trust God no matter what.
- Friendship - I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
Each month we focus on the practical life application of God's Word in kids' everyday lives. The month of August we are focusing on 'Obedience'. Obedience is trusting those who lead you by doing what you’re asked to do. Our obedience demonstrates that we trust people who are in charge, as well as, shows God we trust His plan for our lives. But we don’t always get it right, do we? And our disobedience breaks our relationship with God. All throughout Scripture, we see how God responds to that disobedience. While there were consequences, God continued to love the world and made a way to restore our broken relationship. With that in mind, this school year, we’ll walk kids through God’s One Big Story of God’s plan to rescue us by sending Jesus, His only Son, to make it possible for us to have a relationship with God again. Obedience, we can’t get around it. Obedience is something everyone has to work on whether we’re 9, thirty-nine, or seventy-nine. We can’t wait to see what God will do in each of our lives as we discover more about what the Bible says about following and obeying God and those He’s put in authority over us.
