New Children's Discipleship Material for Online Use
We are excited to launch this new resource that has been created to support children’s discipleship online in response to a time of social distancing. It is designed for children’s ministry leaders working with groups of children via video calling platforms but could be adapted for use in the home as a family.
These resources are aimed at children aged 7-12. The theme for the material for the next three months is built upon 1 Corinthians 13:13, ‘And now these three remain: faith, hope and love’, and the teachings of Jesus in the gospels.
