When we began constructing the scope and sequence of The Gospel Project for Kids it was important that the study be chronological in nature. We also took a look at the Bible and decided that it was more important to use the Bible to define the length and content of a unit of study rather than rely on the calendar to do that. You will notice as you teach that the number of sessions in a unit doesn’t always match up with the number of weekends in a month.
That being said, maybe some of you are looking ahead and wondering, “how does Christmas fit in a chronological Old-Testament study?” And depending on the date you started using the material, you may be wondering what comes next… Well, you’ve got options!
If you began The Gospel Project for Kids on September 2, click here to download a use-chart that will map out the next two units, including Christmas. If you began in a different month, click here to choose which month you began. If you purchased “In the Beginning,” and would like to pause your chronological study for just one Christmas lesson, you may download one Christmas lesson by logging in to the pilot materials.
We want you to teach what you want to teach during the Christmas season, so as we approach December, please use your discretion when planning. If you have further concerns about Christmas scheduling, feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll find someone to help you!
If you are currently using the Winter issue, “A Nation Born,” there are three Christmas lessons built in to Unit 4. If you are currently using, “In the Beginning,” you will need to download the Christmas lesson (1) included in the pilot materials.
