But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 3:18
As we minister to the children that God has placed under our care, we seek to guide them to an understanding of the glory and majesty of God as seen in His perfect character and as revealed in His Son, Jesus Christ. Recognizing that God has given parents the primary responsibility for the spiritual instruction and discipline of children, we intend to partner with families in the process of teaching and training children in hope that they will one day, "...put their confidence in God..." (Psalm 78:7).
Connect 4 Christ (3rd, 4th, 5th Grade Students)
Connect 4 Christ is a new activity for grades 3-5 with the purpose of fostering relationships outside of the Sunday school classroom. Our first Connect 4 event will be February 13 immediately following church and ending at 12:30. Kids will meet in Fellowship Hall for conversation, pizza, and games. Connect 4 Christ will occur 3-4 times a year. There will be volunteer opportunities in the future for ages 16 and up. If you have questions, please contact the Sunday School Coordinators.
We use The Gospel Project® for Kids curriculum from Lifeway. The Gospel Project® for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
Winter Special Curriculum
Usually held for eight weeks in February and March, the winter ‘special’ reinforces application of important scriptural themes through instruction, activities, room decorations, and reenactments of important events through dramas and individuals playing character roles. Both the children and adults wear period costumes to enhance the topic and rotate each week among the theme-centered rooms for instruction and activities. With a different staff of 40 to 60 volunteers, including the drama team, the "special" also provides a break for the regular Sunday School teachers. The five specials rotate annually and include:
- Following Jesus through Holy Week: reinforces what the children are learning about who Jesus is and the purpose of His incarnation.
- Pilgrim’s Progress: adapted from John Bunyan’s book of the same name (first published in 1678).
- The Incredible Journey and the Building of the Tabernacle: adapted from
- “BC 1440: Build a Holy Place . . .and I will dwell among you.” (Exodus 25:8)
- Sailing With Paul: follows the evangelistic journeys of the apostle. The children learn about the people Paul encountered and events that occurred.
- Journey to Freedom (Our Nation’s Spiritual Heritage): adapted from The Light and the Glory, by Peter Marshall and David Manuel, and focuses on the Christian foundation of the formation of our country.
Just after the teaching portion of our service, children are dismissed to their Sunday School classes. Sunday School teachers will be in the lobby to greet and escort children. Parents will need to pick up their children in person and present their guardian tag at the conclusion of our service. Please note that your child's classroom number is printed on your guardian tag.
Zionsville Fellowship utilizes KidCheck secure check-in system. All K-5 volunteers are background checked through Safe Hiring Solutions of Indiana.
