God and Our Elementary Age Kids
Here at Nativity, we believe that teaching children the Word of God is the only way of preparing them to make the most important decision of their lives—where they will spend eternity. A wise man, through observation and the Holy Spirit's inspiration, came to understand this important truth: “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it” Proverbs 22:6.
Because it is so important to shape and guide children, God has given them the capacity to receive and understand spiritual truths from an early age.
It's universally thought at Nativity that children are trusting by nature and will believe whatever adults tell them—be it fairy tales, fascinating facts or Bible stories. They believe the miracles in the Bible without question and find it easy to talk to their unseen friend Jesus. Children are also keen to discover and learn new things. They easily learn new songs and Bible verses, and they love to listen to stories.
But where does one start, and is it enough to keep telling children the same Bible stories? Although children have the same Holy Spirit who in adults, and although God’s Word is as powerful in their lives as it is in ours, a structured plan will go a long way to helping them ‘fit the pieces together’—not just getting the Bible stories in the right order, but realizing how the truths of the Bible form part of their everyday lives.
