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.


Curriculum

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 7

Unit Overview: Israel doubted and disobeyed God, yet God still planned to bless them. God was with His people as they wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. Finally He led them back to the promised land. God later sent Jesus so that even disobedient doubters can trust in Him and receive His promised eternal rest.

Big Idea: What does it mean to sin? To sin is to think, speak or behave in any way that goes against God and His commands.


Memory Verse | proverbs 3:5-6


Unit Overview

Primer videos will be upload the week of that section

Week 1 | june 9 | Numbers 13-14

Story Point: Joshua and Caleb trusted God to give His people the promised land.

Christ Connection: The Israelites rebelled against God because they did not trust Him. Jesus trusted God perfectly. He took the punishment we deserve for our sin, or rebellion against God. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives our sin and gives us eternal life.

Week 2 | June 16 | numbers 20-21

Story Point: God told His people to look at the bronze snake to be healed.

Christ Connection: The Israelites faced a huge problem because of their sin. God sent snakes to punish Israel, but anyone who was bitten could look at the bronze snake on the pole and live. Because of our sin, we face a huge problem: we are separated from God. We deserve to die, but anyone who looks to Jesus on the cross and trusts in Him will live forever with God.

Week 3 | June 23 | numbers 22-24

Story Point: God commanded Balaam to bless His people.

Christ Connection: Balaam could not curse God’s people. God had blessed the Israelites, so Balaam blessed them too. Fourteen hundred years after Balaam announced God’s promise, Jesus was born. God sent Jesus to bless the whole world by rescuing people from sin.

Week 4 | June 30 | Deat. 31-34

Story Point: God commanded Balaam to bless His people.

Christ Connection: Moses was a good leader for God’s people. no other prophet in Israel was like Moses - until Jesus came. The Bible says Jesus deserves more glory than Moses. Jesus is our perfect leader. He died and was raised so that Moses and every believer in all of time can enter the promised land of God’s kingdom.
