Curriculum Review - Large Group/Small Group - Elements kids worship from D6!

elements kids worshipElements kids worship curriculum is a Large Group/Small Group curriculum from D6 and while they designed it to provide a resource to supplement and reinforce their D6 curriculum - which I will review next week - as a Children's church curriculum, I believe it can also serve as a resource for churches to consider as a Sunday School curriculum as well. Allow me to share with you some information about Elements kids worship!
Strengths -
  • Biblically Sound
  • Entirely downloadable and reproducible and churches are welcome to make as many copies as they need for use in their ministry!
  • Focuses for one month on one key "element" the "big idea" which it teaches then re-teaches for the entire month
  • One memory verse for the month with focus on understanding and living the verse - I love this!
  • Unified scope across the board with all D6 resources for all ages - including youth and adult
  • Strong emphasis on kids living what they learn
  • Available in four translations - ECV, NIV, KJV and NKJV
  • Parent materials are included so they are able to continue the learning at home throughout the week
  • Colorful graphics
  • You are able to view one month of lessons before your purchase
Would like to see - 
  • Weekly "Live-it" activities to help children take what they learn out the doors of the church and live it in their everyday lives every day.
  • Quarterly service projects to "Put Feet to Their Faith"
  • Lessons which intentionally engage children in the teaching of the Bible lesson with Bible dramas or other creative methods
Elements kids worship is written with the goal of intentionally engaging children so they are able to remember, understand and live God's Word for genuinely changed lives. If you are looking for a Large Group/Small Group curriculum which, as D6 says, provides tools "packed with the truth of God’s Word, but with a simple laser-like focus on one specific lesson each week", this curriculum is well worth taking a look at to see if it may be a good "fit" for your ministry! D6 says Elements kids worship, "is a large group format Children’s Church Curriculum designed to help kids learn the essential building blocks they need to become spiritual champions for Christ!

  1. I would like to know about the writers of this curriculum. I want to make sure it is sound doctrine for our church. How do I do this?
