About Summit Kids
At Summit, our mission is that every man, woman, and child in the Upstate of South Carolina have the repeated opportunity to see and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and in Summit Kids we take that last part – the child – very seriously.
Every Sunday in Summit Kids, through our qualified volunteers and first-rate curriculum, we strive to provide a safe environment where children, birth-5th grade, can experience the love of God and begin a relationship with Him.
As children respond to the relationship God has called them into, we desire to help them develop that relationship and learn to:
passionately pursue God
live connected for others
discover their Spirit-giftedness
steward their lives
share their grace stories
Our hope and expectation is that if you consider Summit your church and have children involved in Summit Kids, you will commit to serve in the ministry. Summit Kids continues to grow each and every week, and we would love nothing more than to see parents pour into a ministry that pours into their children every weekend. Non-parents are welcome to serve as well.
The Gospel Project for Kids is a Christ-centered curriculum that we use to teach chronologically through the entire Bible in three years, showing how Christ is the central figure of God’s word and plan. This curriculum is large group and small group based, and each child has the opportunity to journal what God is teaching them.
All age groups, from pre-kindergarten through 5th grade, will learn the same story each week, but it is tailored to each grade level’s learning ability. As the children move up a grade, they will continue on the same chronological plan they started. We also resource parents with tools in order to help them engage their children about the weekly lesson.
Unit Overview: God used Joseph to provide for the people of Israel and bring them into Egypt, which set the stage for a glorious demonstration of God’s power to deliver. God raised up Moses to rescue His people from slavery in Egypt. God saved His people from physical captivity in Egypt like He would one day save His people from spiritual captivity by sending Jesus, a Deliverer greater than Moses.
Big Idea: Is there anything God cannot do? God can do all things according to His character.
