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: As the rescued people of Israel traveled through the wilderness, God instructed His covenant people how to live holy lives in an unholy world. God also gave them rules for worship. God’s law sustained their relationship with God until His perfect plan was revealed through Jesus Christ.
Big Idea: What is Worship? Worship is celebrating the greatness of God.
Memory Verse | Exodus 15:2
Primer videos will be upload the week of that section
Week 1 | may 12 | ex. 32,43
Story Point: God disciplined His people for worshiping a golden calf.
Christ Connection: God’s people sinned against God, and Moses asked God to forgive them. Moses acted as their mediator, standing for them before God. Moses could not do anything to make up for their sin, but we have a better Mediator, Jesus. Jesus paid for our sin on the cross and stands for us before God. When we trust in Jesus, our sins are forgiven.
Week 2 | May 26 | ex. 35-40
Story Point: God told His people how to build the tabernacle where He would dwell with them.
Christ Connection: God instructed the Israelites to build a tabernacle where He would dwell with them. God desires to be with His people. As part of His plan to save sinners, God sent Jesus to “tabernacle” or dwell, with people on earth.
Week 3 | June 2 | leviticus
Story Point: God is holy and requires a sacrifice for sin.
Christ Connection: The sacrifices God required of His people were a hint of what God was going to do to forgive sinners. We no longer need to offer sacrifices because we trust in Jesus. Jesus offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice that takes away our sin once and for all.
