There are several essential things we must do when it comes to Children's Ministry - but one definitely involves creating as engaging a ministry as possible. If our ministry is not engaging, any child who does not have to be there, will not continue to come. These children typically are neighborhood children and those who come with grandparents, other family member, or a friend. These children who only come IF they want to come do matter. They are important. Jesus absolutely cares about them, so it is vital for us to be certain our Children's Ministry is as engaging as possible. Of course it also matters for those children who come with their parents. The day will come when they get to decide if they continue to go to church and if the Children's Ministry was engaging it is more likely they were able to understand what it means to believe in and walk with Jesus. For all the children in your ministry it matters if our ministry is engaging.
This is why it matters so much for you to choose a curriculum which is designed to engage children. Yes, it needs to teach God's Word and not just be "fluff", but it is possible for it to do this and also be engaging and fun! Deeper In for Children is engaging and it teaches God's Word. In fact, children open Bibles every week, discover what God's Word says, help teach the Bible event for the week, and focus on what it means.
With Deeper In for Children children are challenged each week to put what they learned into practice - Deeper In for Children is about far more than head knowledge and will engage children in ways which truly matter.
Deeper In for Children is a very intentional curriculum and when you use it in your ministry, the children will learn, remember, understand, and know how to live God's Word!
