Jesus really likes children.
He didn’t ask for childcare when he had a speaking engagement.
He loved their enthusiasm. He impressed upon those he taught how important they were.
So important, that throughout scripture, in Deuteronomy, Proverbs, Mark, the Acts, the message is clear…teach the children God’s truth.
Isaiah prophesied of Jesus, “…with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.” (Is. 11:6) This truth reveals Jesus’ desire for our children to understand their role in caring for others.
Come to the Table, Children’s Hunger Awareness Curriculum, a collaboration between the Christian Life Commission and Dallas Baptist University Masters Education Department, will help you do just that.
Written for preschoolers (age 3-K), younger children (grades 1-4), and preteens (grades 5-6), it is now available for free download. Each age-graded section offers five sessions which include Bible stories, mission stories based on Hunger Offering projects, related activities for the classroom, and activities for the family at home.
Use this curriculum in Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, missions organizations, and/or children’s camps and retreats. Exploring the biblical texts and hearing how Texas Baptists are alleviating hunger and poverty at home and abroad will help the children envision a world without hunger and their part in transforming that image into reality.
Scripture says, “Teach the children.” If we don’t teach them, who will?
