As we introduce our new focus and theme for the coming Sunday school workshops, we encourage you to read these FAQ and discover a deeper meaning in discipling children.
WHY DO WE NEED TO DISCIPLE KIDS?
Because children are an important part of God’s kingdom.
Jesus wants His followers to help instead of hinder children from coming to Him (Mark 9:37; Luke 18:16-17).
God receives praise from little children (Matthew 21:16).
In the OT, children are included in the corporate worship, prayer, and repentance of God’s people (Ezra 10:1; Nehemiah 8:1-3). In the NT, Jesus blessed children, made them an example for His disciples, defended their right to praise Him, warned adults against causing them to sin, and declared that the kingdom of heaven belongs to them (Matthew 18:2-6; 19:14; 21:15-16; Mark 10:16).
Because parents (adults) are commanded to disciple their kids (the next generation).
Parents are to make use of every opportunity to teach their children to love God and obey His commands (Deuteronomy 6:6-9; Ephesians 6:4).
Because the church needs to teach/equip parents to disciple their own kids.
In the OT, God commanded Moses and Joshua to institute rituals that would cause children to ask questions and give parents an opportunity to tell them about what the Lord has done for His people (Exodus 12:25-27; Joshua 4:6-7, 21-24).
Because discipling kids while they are young bears fruit that lasts.
Teach kids to obey the Lord in their formative years and they will be more likely to keep doing so when they are grown. Timothy is a good example of this. As a child, he was taught in the faith by his mother and grandmother, and as a youth he was trained by the Apostle Paul to serve Christ (Proverbs 22:6; 2 Timothy 4:14-15).
WHY IS IT GOOD TO HAVE A CURRICULUM ON DISCIPLING KIDS?
Because we should be intentional in our teaching.
The Lord Jesus has commanded us to make disciples and teach them to obey all His commands. Disciples—children included—must be taught from the Scriptures to grow deep roots in Christ, build their lives on Him, and become stronger in their faith. They must be taught the truth, rebuked in their errors, corrected for their faults, trained for right living, and equipped to do good deeds so that they can serve God with character and competence (Matthew 28:20; Colossians 2:6-7; 3:16; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
WHAT IS CSM’S DISCIPLEKIDS MATERIAL ALL ABOUT?
It is a handy tool to help teachers level up their Sunday school kids through six months of intentional disciplemaking. Parents who want to be hands-on in discipling their own kids can also use this material at home!
DiscipleKids: Training the Next Generation to Follow Jesus (COMING OUT VERY SOON!) has 24 lessons you can use to lay a solid foundation for children’s faith. The lessons are divided into four themes that teach kids to
- discover their purpose in God’s kingdom,
- put on the full armor of God and win over temptations,
- fight unseen spiritual foes by becoming prayer warriors, and
- be ready to travel on mission and bring the gospel to people of other nations.
DiscipleKids uses action songs, games, crafts, creative Bible storytelling methods and other multisensory techniques to help kids with different learning styles and abilities relate to the lessons, process biblical truths, retain them longer, and be able to apply and share what they learn. It also contains insights and tips to help the teacher/parent understand kids better, adjust their teaching approach to allow for special needs, and effectively model what they teach.
