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.

Sunday, May 16 | Unit 33, Session 2: Paul’s Second Journey  

  • BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 15-18
  • STORY POINT: Paul and Silas planted new churches.
  • MEMORY VERSE: Acts 4:12
  • There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
  • BIG PICTURE QUESTION: What is the Bible about? The Bible is the story of God’s plan to save people through Jesus.  

Paul was back at the church of Antioch in Syria. The church had sent out Paul and Barnabas to preach the gospel to Jews and Gentiles in places like Lystra and Derbe. Then they returned to the church of Antioch. Some time passed, and Paul wanted to return to some of the cities he visited on his first journey to see how the new believers were doing.  

Silas accompanied Paul on his second missionary journey. The pair traveled through Syria and Cilicia, encouraging believers and strengthening churches. The number of believers in the churches increased daily.   Paul and Silas obeyed the Lord’s call to go to Macedonia. Two major events happened while Paul was in Macedonia. First, a woman named Lydia became a believer. Then, a jailer became a believer. This happened when Paul and Silas were thrown into prison.  

Emphasize the Christ connection as you review the Bible story with your children: Lydia, the jailer, and many others were saved because they heard the gospel and believed in Jesus.
