We'll learn about Paul's conversion and missionary travels. Each month, the children learn about a local Mission, a Calvary Church ministry, or one of our very own Calvary Church Global Partners!
Missions is all about people hearing about and choosing to worship JESUS! We will focus on the life of Jesus. It’s a good place to start on our elementary missions journey because God desires that everyone have a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus. He’s the source of the Good News of the gospel! In addition to studying the life of Christ each week, we will also “travel” to ten countries throughout the year where the people have learned about Jesus through the showing of “The
Jesus Film”. We’ll have fun playing games, making crafts, and even occasionally sampling foods from these countries.
This year in clubs, we will be “on a mission” to learn more about :
• God’s heart for the world
• who God has used in the past to spread the good news about Jesus
• how God can use us today
• the need for people all around the world to have the good news in their heart language
• our global partners who are spreading the Good News through a variety of jobs and methods
• Other countries and cultures
We will learn to W.R.A.P. the World in Prayer! and share Jesus using a cool tool called the EvangeCube! We will be introduced to our Calvary Church global partners who serve in Europe and use a variety of games, crafts, and food to introduce the students to a variety of European cultures.
God gives us the awesome privilege of being used to make His name known around the world! We’ll learn that we can do that by getting involved as Prayers, Givers, Senders, Connectors, Welcomers, and Goers. We will also learn about Bible Translation and the work of Wycliffe Bible Translators.
We “nail down” the BIG TRUTHS of the Gospel so that the students learn to identify the BIG LIES that many people believe. We introduce the students to the T.H.U.M.B. people groups (Tribal, Hindu, Chinese, Muslim and Buddhist) so that they will know how to use the Bible to share its truth with others who don’t worship Jesus. We learn about other cultures through games and activities, and we enjoy guest speakers.
Many of the themes from the previous five years are reviewed and taught in new ways. We will take a look at issues of poverty around the globe and be challenged to respond in biblical ways. During the last half of the year, the students will learn and practice a variety of methods for sharing their faith through natural everyday conversations. Students will be challenged and motivated to trust God to use them to draw others to Himself.
Read Around the World
Kids will be invited to participate in our Read Around the World missions reading incentive program. Information will be sent home with your child in October and will be available in the library throughout the year.
