The transition back to school can often be a daunting time for children - a mix of anticipation and apprehension as they face a new academic year with all its challenges and changes. In this 4-week “Back To School” children's ministry curriculum, we address these feelings by blending biblical teachings with practical advice, providing children with spiritual tools to navigate this vital phase confidently while reaffirming that God is their constant companion and source of strength.

Series Big Idea: "As we start the new school year, Jesus' love is with us in every challenge, every good thing, and every friendship we make."

Series Memory Verse: Philippians 4:13

Recommended Age: 6-12 Years Old

Week 1: "Packed with Purpose: Gearing Up for the Journey Ahead"

  • Main Idea: Just like packing a backpack with essential supplies, we need to equip our hearts and minds with spiritual 'supplies' - virtues such as kindness, honesty, and patience.
  • Scripture Reference: Colossians 3:12-14 (Clothe Yourself with Virtues)

Week 2: "Unseen Blessings: Discovering God's Support in Our Daily Lives"

  • Main Idea: God's blessings are like unseen school supplies that assist us daily. We learn to see God's hand in our lives by acknowledging and appreciating these blessings.
  • Scripture Reference: Numbers 6:24-26 (The Priestly Blessing)

Week 3: "Navigating New Beginnings: Embracing Change with Courage"

  • Main Idea: Starting a new school year brings changes and challenges. With courage and trust in God, we can face any change and turn challenges into opportunities for growth.
  • Scripture Reference: Joshua 1:9 (God's assurance to Joshua)

Week 4: "Classroom Companions: Building Friendships and Spreading God's Love"

  • Main Idea: School isn't just about academics; it's also a place to build friendships and show God's love by treating everyone with kindness and respect.
  • Scripture Reference: 1 John 4:11-12 (God's command to love one another)

Through this curriculum, we can teach our kids that the Gospel gives us the confidence to face any challenge. Just as Jesus overcame death, we can overcome difficulties because He is with us, providing God's grace. And even when we make mistakes or sin, the Gospel assures us of God's forgiveness and love.

"This 'Back to School' series guides children to deepen their relationship with Jesus, equipping them with virtues and understanding His enduring presence in their daily school life. By embodying and sharing these lessons, children receive the Good News and become active carriers of Jesus' love and teachings among their peers and community."

Translation: This study is written to work with any Bible translations and poster visuals are included using the NIV, ESV, and KJV.

      "Back To School: Backpacks, Blessings, and New Beginnings” 4-Week Children's Ministry

      BACK to thankful for these free lessons being available!!!!

      Thank You so much for this Lesson. The only thing that keeps me from purchasing the rest of the lessons is I never know from week to week if I'll have children, or who will show up.
      I just did lesson one (free lesson) last night! I had 3 children; age 5, 9 and almost 11.
      The backpack object lesson was great. I think the spiritual backpack made an impact on the two older children.
      I loaded up the lesson on PowerPoint and put the memory verse on a page and created a scramble. I also pasted the
      memory verse on BIG Legos and had the two older children race to put theirs together first, while the youngest colored a poster of the memory verse that I created.
      I reinforced the lessons with pictures in a concentration game since my littlest girl cant read.

      I really enjoyed this 4 week lesson for my Sunday school class. This was so helpful when I took on a new class and needed material. The timing was perfect because we had 4 weeks until school started back. The lessons are very organized and easy to follow and the material was great. I will continue to use lessons from this program. I have used several lessons now, and I am always impressed that it has everything I need. Thank you for making it easier for me to share the word of God with our children.
