It’s been a bit quiet on my blog, here, as I’ve been hard at work for the Illustrated Children’s Ministry summer launch. Friends, I am SO excited about this.
Adam Walker Cleveland is the brain-child behind this venture. He saw a need for creative ways to approach faith, both at home and at church. He created this. Cool coloring posters, activities/questions/stories that make the Bible more accessible to families, creative energy in the church, and more…And isn’t it beautifully fitting how the launch of summer resources comes out today – right after Pentecost when we celebrate God’s Spirit blowing with fresh energy and vision across the world.
I’ve been helping write curriculum for “An Illustrated Earth: Celebrating God’s Creation.” You can download a sample lesson here. If you’re in search of a summer Sunday School resource or VBS program, this is for you (plus, it’s next to no prep).
We’ve also created a resource called An Illustrated Earth for Families. You can use this to go along with the church resource, or it can standalone and be used by families during the summer. Summer is often a time of travel and rest, and this can be a way to share faith as family when you’re on the road.
The lessons from the church curriculum will be edited to serve as simple and easy devotions that a family can do together, and the questions will be geared for the family. There will be some additional activities in the family edition that will not be included in the curriculum. Finally, it will also include a collection of faith activity ideas for families to do throughout the summer.
I hope these resources can bless you/your family/your church as we live into summer’s rhythm and cherish God’s world (and our place in it).
