Children's Church Curriculum Review - It's Grow Time by RBP

It's Grow Time Jr. Church Kit - Year 1Regular Baptist Press has long been known to publish Biblically solid curriculum and resources, but they told me for years they had been receiving questions about a Children's Church resource, so after research, prayer and hard work, they released their new Jr Church - It's Grow Time. RBP says, "Don't wait for 'big church'. Promote Spiritual growth, now!'"  Allow me to share with you some information about this resource -
Strengths -
  • Biblically Sound
  • Lessons do an EXCELLENT job of engaging children
  • Memory verse for the unit
  • Children read God's Word during the lesson
  • Print materials are reproducible 
  • Teacher’s Guide with lessons for grades 1–6 with younger, older and combined group options
  • Fully reproducible Resource CD with teaching materials and theme-related clip art
  • 2 Song CDs
  • Animated Bible Accounts DVD
  • Full-color Teaching Pictures
  • Bible Timeline Collector Cards for kids
  • Includes info on how to lead a child to Christ
  • Additional activity options for each lesson
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"
  • Teacher devotions
It's Grow Time 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 curriculum which is solid, extremely well written and provides options, this curriculum is absolutely well worth taking a look at to see if it may be a good "fit" for your ministry! Regular Baptist Press says, "Four out of five churches are looking for a Jr Church program with an intentional emphasis on spiritual growth. It's Grow Time is exactly what churches need - it uses a three-year-through-the-Bible scope with younger, older and combined-group options to fit any size church.
