How old do you have to be before you can hear a story and believe it? Studies are showing that we form many of our religious beliefs before the age of nine. We want to start teaching children who God is as early as possible. The Word of Life Gopher Buddies program is specifically designed to help in the task of imparting the foundational truths of Scripture to children with creativity and clarity. To enable children to know, understand, and obey Scripture, the Gopher Buddies program is built upon the solid foundation of God’s Word.
Our lessons have been designed to teach early learners foundational truths of Scripture and key character traits. The Bible lessons combined with daily Bible reading (quiet time), Scripture memory, books read to the children, and faithfulness in church will help children begin to learn what they believe which will affect who they become.
Each year’s curriculum will cover six foundational biblical truths, four character trait studies, along with four holiday and theme night lessons. Each lesson is written to speak to the heart of a child. Some adaptations are suggested for small groups, large groups, and children with special needs.
Curriculum is like the proverbial tip of the iceberg:
