Baby Steps

-from GBOD (United Methodist General Board of Discipleship)

The goal of Baby Steps is to equip parents and guardians with practical tools to help them engage spiritually with their child in their first five years of life. This resource, written by Jeremy Steele, spends time developing the understanding of how children develop, discovering tools to help them grow spiritually, and finishes with a panel of veteran parents for parents and guardians to get advice on any topic.

United Methodist History 

-from GBOD (United Methodist General Board of Discipleship)

The history of the Methodist Church is filled with great faith, excitement, and evangelism. There is a long history of caring for the poor and oppressed, and people with the deep desire to do whatever is necessary to share the love and good news of God with those who need it most. The lessons of Our United Methodist History are designed to help preschoolers and elementary aged children learn and celebrate the rich and vibrant history of their denomination. Perhaps, through understanding the history and passion of John Wesley and others, they might capture the desire to do God’s work and bring the good news to our world today! The lessons are short and designed to work with mixed-aged children. The activities use a minimum of supplies and include pictures of the activities to help with clarity.
