Children's Church Curriculum Review - Knights of God Academy - And a Give-Away!

Knights of God AcademyFor several years now I've been reviewing NextGen4Christ's VBS resources. Today I'm happy to share with you a new resource they have made available . . . and announce a special give-away! First, the resource . . . Knight's of God Academy . . . a twelve week children's church curriculum which focuses on the armor of God.

This resource is easy to use - if you used a castle theme for VBS, it makes a fun way to follow up and continue the learning for 12 more weeks. Churches often look for resources to help their kids learn about the Armor of God, Knights of God Academy is a resource which will help churches do this! Affordable and flexible, you will spend two weeks on each piece of the armor with a strong focus on helping children not just learn what the armor is, but how to use it in their everyday lives, every day! 

NextGen4Christ says, "The Armor of God is described as being able to protect the believers of Christ to stand against the influences and struggles of this world. With the world having more influence on children, it seems we should protect them. But we cannot protect them forever. So in the next 12 weeks, you will give them what they need to stay strong in their faith and devotion to God: the Armor of God in Ephesians 6. At Knights of God Academy, your “Knights in Training” will learn and train in the 6 pieces of armor. We hope this will strengthen their ability to stand firm for Jesus in everyday situations at school, at home, or on the soccer field; to stay strong!

If you are looking for a children's church or mid-week resource, definitely take a look at Knights of God Academy . . . with a little thought and creativity, you could easily expand this to 24 weeks of materials! You can look at a sample lesson at this link.
