Live in the Light: 4-Week Curriculum Overview

In the world we live in, some people say truth is subjective. It can be challenging for children to grasp the concept of absolute truth. Doubt and uncertainty creep in as they are bombarded with various conflicting ideas and philosophies. The purity of their faith is at risk as they grapple to distinguish between truth and fallacy. This could result in confusion and wavering faith.

In light of these struggles, your church has the profound opportunity to guide these young minds in discovering the absolute truth of God. That’s why we created "Live in the Light." This series is designed to introduce and unpack the profound metaphor of God as light in the Bible and illuminate the path of truth for your young believers.

Grounded in the enduring truth of Scripture, this engaging 4-week series explores the theme of 'light' and its relation to truth in the life of a Christian. Each lesson centers around key biblical passages that will enable children to understand the unchanging nature of God's truth and how it influences their daily lives.

Week 1 - "God is Light" (1 John 1:5)

  • Learning Goal: We'll explore how God is like a bright light, guiding us and helping us see what's true and right. We will look into how God being like light means that He shows us the way and helps us avoid wrong turns. We will dive into stories and verses that illustrate this truth.
  • Bible Stories: 1 John 1:5 (God is Light); Genesis 1:1-4 (Creation of Light); Psalm 119:105 (God's word as light); Proverbs 6:23 (God's commands as light)

Week 2 - "Jesus is Light" (John 8:12)

  • Learning Goal: We're going to learn about Jesus, the Son of God, who shows us God's light and helps us understand what's really true about God. We'll see how Jesus is the light means He is the ultimate truth and how His teachings can guide our actions and decisions.

Week 3 - "From Darkness to Light" (Acts 26:13-18)

  • Learning Goal: We'll look at how believing in Jesus changes us, like moving from a dark room into bright sunlight. This change helps us see things more clearly and understand God better. We'll discuss how our lives can change when we let the light of Jesus in.
  • Bible Stories: Acts 26:13-18 (Paul's conversion from darkness to light); Psalm 107:14 (God rescuing from darkness); John 9:39-41 (Spiritual blindness vs. seeing the light)

Week 4 - "Let Your Light Shine" (Matt. 5:14-16)

  • Learning Goal: We'll learn about our own roles as followers of Jesus. Just like a small lamp can light up a dark room, we can shine bright in the world by living God's truth in our lives. We'll explore how our actions, words, and even thoughts can reflect Jesus' light to the people around us.
  • Bible Stories: Matthew 5:14-16 (Believers as the light of the world); Ephesians 5:8-13 (Living as children of light); James 5:16 (The power of prayer in a believer's life)
