Make and Deepen Disciples GROW Kids resources includes suggestions for exploring and preparing children to participate in worship, communion, prayer, and reading the Bible.  Take a moment to download these four wonderful resources.

Here one example of the material contained within the GROW Kids resources. It is a simple framework using the word GROW for talking about scripture stories with children.

G=God’s Word: What is the story? (Give children an opportunity to express their understanding of the story.) Do you have any questions for God about the story?

R=Relationships: Is there anything in today’s bible story that shows us how we should or shouldn’t share God’s love with others? (Remind children that sometimes God uses the stories of the bible to show us how we shouldn’t act toward God or others. Give children a chance to consider how we might show God’s love instead.)

O=Outward Action: Is there anything in the bible story that shows us how we should help or serve God or others? (Explore concrete ways the children could live this out in the coming week.)

W=Worship: Is there anything in the bible story that shows us how we should accept God’s love for us or others? Ask: How do you feel about God? What would you like to say to God?
