Curriculum: The Gospel Project for Kids (Lifeway) is a Christ-centered Bible study resource that looks at the big picture of God’s story…the story of redemption through Jesus Christ.  Each family will receive a set of Big Picture Cards which equips parents to help their kids understand how the Bible story fits into the big picture of God’s story, as well as discussion and activities for families to use at home.
