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: Moses led God’s people toward the promised land. God made a covenant with His people and gave them laws to guide them in how to live and to help them understand His perfect holiness. God’s laws show that the only way to be right with God is through faith in Jesus, the only perfectly righteous One.
Big Idea: What is God like? God is holy, good, and loving.
Memory Verse | matthew 22:37-39
Primer videos will be upload the week of that section
Week 1 | April 14 | ex. 15-17
Story Point: God provided for the physical needs of His people.
Christ Connection: In the New Testament, Jesus said that He is the Bread of Life (John 6:31-35). God provided manna from heaven for His people’s physical hunger, and later He provided His Son, Jesus, for our spiritual hunger. The Israelites need bread to live for a little while, but whoever has Jesus will live forever!
Week 2 | April 28 | ex. 18
Story Point: Moses needed help to lead God’s people.
Christ Connection: Moses needed others to help him lead God’s people and teach them God’s laws. God does not want believers to follow Jesus alone. He gives us brothers and sisters of faith who can help us love God, obey God, and tell others about Him.
Week 3 | May 5 | Ex. 19-20
Story Point: God gave rules to show how to love Him and others.
Christ Connection: God is holy and separate from sin. His law shows us what He requires - perfect righteousness. Our sin separates us from God, but Jesus came to bring us back to God. Jesus is perfectly righteous. When we trust in Jesus, He takes away our sin and welcomes us into God’s family.
