There are many voices in this world teaching our children an identity. But it is often harmful and not Biblical. In this Identity Kids series, we as Bible teachers will paint the realities of God’s Word onto the canvas of our children’s lives. All 13 lessons in this series help kids learn important truths about who God says they are. Unless kids hear and embrace the truth God declares about them, they will not come to a full understanding of who they are IN CHRIST and will never reach their full God-given potential. How would your life be different now if you had embraced your true identity at an early age?
Each lesson is written for elementary children ages 6-12 and is approximately 50-60 minutes in length, but may be easily adapted to fit your service time. Options are given throughout to tailor this curriculum to fit your ministry.
