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 

Now that we are back to worshiping in person, you must preregister your children using the link on our home page. We continue to provide Kingdom Kidz online for those families who are not able to come to our services. Be sure to visit this page each week to connect to our YouTube videos. 

Sunday, August 1 | Unit 35, Session 5: Defending the Faith  

  • BIBLE PASSAGE: Jude
  • STORY POINT:  Jude urged believers to stand up for what is true.
  • MEMORY VERSE: Philippians 1:6
  • He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
  • BIG PICTURE QUESTION: What will happen for all Christians in the future? One day, all Christians will see Jesus in His glory and live with Him forever.  

Jude, along with James, was a younger half-brother of Jesus. And like James, it wasn’t until Jesus rose from the dead that Jude believed Jesus was the Son of God. Sometime between AD 65 and AD 80, Jude wrote a short letter to warn believers about false teachers. False teachers had secretly made their way into the church, and Jude urged his readers not to abandon their beliefs but to “contend for the faith” (Jude 3). 

Jude warned the early Christians that some people would try to divide them by sinning and by teaching things that weren’t true. Jude wanted them to not only defend the true teachings but also to actively share the gospel. He told his friends to show mercy to those who doubt, to lead others to Jesus, and to hate sin.  

Because of Jesus, we will be able to stand before God with great joy. In the words of Jude, “to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority before all time, now and forever. Amen” (Jude 25).
