KINGDOM KIDZ

Through our curriculum, the Gospel Project for Kids, we take children on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Your children will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. They engage through story, activities, scripture memorization, and prayer.  Each week, we send families lesson overviews and valuable links so that parents can  engage with their children to prepare them for the coming Sunday's lesson. As well we provide links to our weekly teaching videos for families and also a link to Gospel Project @Home to use after the Sunday lesson.

KINGDOM KIDZ ONLINE 

We are able to meet in person again at 30% capacity, so if you would like your children to attend Kingdom Kidz in person, please be sure to register them through our EventBrite link.

We know that some families would still prefer to worship together at home so we will continue to offer online lessons as well, with links posted on this page every Sunday. The links will remain on this page along with the accompanying activity pages found at the bottom of this page until the Tuesday morning afterwards. 

SUNDAY, MARCH 7 | Unit 31, Session 1: Peter and Cornelius  

  • BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 10
  • STORY POINT: The gospel is for all people.
  • KEY PASSAGE: 1 Chronicles 16:31
  • Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”  1 Chronicles 16:31
  • BIG PICTURE QUESTION: What is the gospel? The gospel is the good news that God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to rescue sinners.  

The apostle Peter preached and taught boldly after Pentecost. Jesus had commanded His followers to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. Acts 10 shows us how God made clear to Peter that the gospel is for everyone—not only the Jews but also the Gentiles.  

When Peter was in Joppa, Peter had a vision. He was on a rooftop when God showed him a sheet of animals and commanded him to eat. The problem was that some of the animals were considered “unclean” by Jewish food laws. Three times, God said to Peter, “What God has made clean, do not call impure.”   God was telling Peter that He did not want a Jewish man to call anyone unclean just because he was a foreigner. So, Peter preached the gospel to the Gentiles there, and they believed. The Holy Spirit filled them, and they were baptized.  

The gospel is good news for everyone. As you talk with your children, emphasize that God showed Peter that just as there is no “clean” and “unclean” food, there are no “clean” and “unclean” people. God calls believers to tell everyone the good news about Jesus, no matter who they are or where they come from. Jesus is the Lord of all.
