Children are a vitally important part of The Salvation Army and we want to help and encourage them to engage in the reading of Scripture and experience what God has to say to them.
While adult Salvationists have resource material to guide them through the New Testament during 2015, it’s exciting that we also have material for our children.
Working through this challenge together means we can encourage each other, read together as a family or a community, and explore the Bible stories and richness of the text together. We can have conversations around teachings we might have questions about and examine what we think God wants us to learn or understand.
It’s a wonderful opportunity and privilege to explore Scripture with the next generation. You may need to help your child with some of the reading and activities, but being involved with them in this project will be a great blessing for everyone.
We are entering a Bible reading challenge – called The Whole World Reading – along with the adults in our families and our churches. Over this year we are going to explore some great stories from the New Testament. We are going to read important stories from Jesus’ life and learn what he was like when he lived on earth, as well as some important messages for the Early Church and what it means to be a true follower of Jesus.
Are you ready for the challenge? Let's get started and share this journey together…
