Children’s Sunday School literature in American evangelicalism is often bloodless and boring. A while back I wrote here about one particularly maddening instance of a gospel-free curriculum. But there’s good news out there, and here’s one example.
Steve Wright, pastor of family discipleship at Providence Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, is heading up Treasuring Christ Curriculum, which he says “desires to see children and youth biblically grounded, seeing God as the hero of every story, with a Gospel-centered worldview.”
At their website you can view some sample curricula, learn more about what makes this material distinct, and even see their pricing. (One thing y’all might want to know is that any church plant in the United States under seven years old will receive the curriculum for free, and is free as well to missionaries and their churches on the field.)
I hope this curricula (and others like it) are a first wave of a new movement of equipping parents and teachers to disciple our kids, and to disciple them to not be ashamed of the blood of the cross.
