Big Truths for Young Hearts (Years 5&6)
Robyn from Narwee Baptist in NSW has developed a two year program to teach or Years 5 and 6 kids the truths of the Christian faith, based on the Bruce A Ware book Big Truths for Young Hearts. It covers things like … who is God, who is Jesus, who is the Holy Spirit, who are we, how are we saved, what takes place in the end. It is set up for small groups and goes beyond just a Bible story and application. Robyn’s program is excellent and we highly recommend it for those with kids in Years 5 & 6 who are wanting a firm grounding for their kids. Robyn is happy to email you the Word docs for the full 2 year program if you contact her on robyn@narweebaptist.org.au.
