Child Discipleship: Connecting Truth to Identity in God’s Big Story

Wonder Ink’s child discipleship plan explores the entire Bible and celebrates the wonder of God in each lesson through a 4-part journey of Curiosity, Belief, Faith, and Identity in both large and small group format.


A multi-sensory object lesson, STEM experiment, or group activity that sparks curiosity, encourages exploration, and gets kids thinking about the wonder of God.


A deep and interactive dive into Scripture that guides kids into knowing God more deeply, exploring His Big Story, and marveling at His wonder.


An intentional conversation that helps kids see the wonder of God’s Story and how it connects to their own, emboldening their faith, and fostering a deeper understanding of their place in God's kingdom.


An interactive response activity that ushers kids into worship and creates space for Him to remind them of these core truths: I am known by God, I am loved by Jesus, I am led by the Holy Spirit, and my life can tell of God’s wonder.

The 3-year, 52-week scope and sequence makes room for the big (and sometimes hard) questions kids have while leaving no doubt about who God is and who they are in Him. Lessons are grouped into series of 4-8 weeks and includes dedicated series for both Christmas and Easter.  This is our second year using Wonder Ink and both our kids and leaders love it.

Our children's ministry does participate in local and global mission work, too.  We believe that kids should experience the joy of serving others -- of being the hands and feet of Jesus. Various projects and field trips are scheduled throughout the year.
