Gospel Light Sunday School


Pointing Kids Towards Jesus
Gospel Light Sunday School strives to point kids towards Jesus when creating their Sunday School Curriculum and other Children's Ministry products. Explore all Gospel Light Sunday School has to offer. From Preschool ages through to Pre-Teen ages, their curriculum has been a trusted resource years.



Overview


Gospel Light’s passion is to bring God’s Word to kids in fun, easy-to-learn ways, based on a strong foundation in the Bible that gives kids godly values they can carry with them throughout their lives.

Most people begin their relationship with Jesus before the age of 12. That’s why we believe one of the most important things we can do is help elementary kids see Jesus in every story of the Bible and learn to trust Him in every area of their lives. So whether you are teaching from the Old Testament or New Testament, Gospel Light Sunday School will help you point kids to Jesus every Sunday.



Foundational Pillars for Children's Ministry


Based on the Bible

Successful children’s ministries teach the Bible in ways that are relevant to each age and stage of life and sensitive to the spiritual needs God has hardwired into all of us.


Values Relationships

Successful children’s ministries recognize that spiritual growth happens best in the context of close personal relationships. It’s about people leading other people to Jesus.


Offers a complete plan from Birth to Adulthood

Successful children’s ministries have a comprehensive plan from birth through adulthood. This plan must be sensitive to the spiritual seasons God has designed for all of us.


Focuses on Life Transformation

The goal of a successful children’s ministry is changed lives. Everything from the stories and activities to the music is designed to help teachers and leaders layer God’s truth into a child’s life in a life-transforming way.


Points kids to Jesus

It leads kids to Jesus. The Bible is one story- the story of Jesus. We believe that every story in the Bible points to Jesus. So should your ministry. Because nothing is more important than a person’s relationship with Jesus.
