In ZOOM, we begin to answer that question by ZOOMING in on the different names of God. The Bible gives God various names that all mean different things. Each name gives us a small clue to the big picture of who God is. Junior detectives search for clues to catch the Puzzler and learn more about their benefactor, the mysterious Detective Zoom.
Each lesson in the lower and upper elementary guides is meant to teach God’s truth in ways that influence wise choices and actions. They are designed to encourage children to apply the Bible to their daily lives. Every activity and story brings you back to the Bible and constantly reinforces the truths found in the Scriptures.
Use these guides for your Sunday morning Sunday School or midweek Bible study classroom time. The lessons range from 45 to 90 minutes and can easily stretch over multiple weeks if you choose.
For each lesson there is a take-home activity page that your children can do in the classroom or with their parents at home. These are intended to help parents continue to enforce the lesson and main point throughout the week.
A leader’s devotion is included to help your leaders connect with each lesson before teaching their class.
Hang colorful posters in your classrooms or even around your church to continue to drive home the scripture and point or to encourage kids to join!
Whatever your time frame or children’s program style, you will find this curriculum can meet those needs. Kids will love these unique and fun themes. And you will love how fun and easy these programs are to use and how continually the Bible is taught.
This curriculum uses the NAS, but any scripture quoted can be easily adapted to your preferred translation.
