Because elementary-age children engage through stories, TruStory invites kids to discover more about The Big God Story. They will be able to see more about who God is, what He is doing through His Word, and how they can be part of His big story.
TruStory uses a variety of teaching styles to help children build upon what they know about the world around them to discover more about who God made them to be and what He has for His people. In TruStory, children learn how to open God’s Word and respond to Him on their own through worship and personal reflection.
TruStory begins in the home with the HomeFront Weekly. Families are equipped to be the primary nurturers of their children’s faith through time together in God’s Word, prayer, and blessing. Children will come into a TruStory classroom ready to continue conversations about God that began at home.
TruStory Classroom Edition uses a format where children stay in smaller groups throughout the lesson. Chronological Bible teaching reveals God’s redemptive narrative as children build community and traditions with one another.
Components of a TruStory Classroom Edition Lesson:
- Connect: Children develop relationships with their leaders and one another through activities and conversation starters.
- Gather: Children experience and learn more about God through prayer, creative ways to memorize Scripture, storytelling from The Big God Story, and discussion.
- Respond: Children reflect on what the Holy Spirit is teaching them and respond to God through creative activities and games.
- Bless: Children receive a blessing for the purpose of declaring God’s protection, joy, or wisdom.
