Jesus Ascended to Heaven

Dear Parents, We’re glad your child joined us this week in The Gospel Project® for Kids. This week’s Bible story comes from Acts 1:3-11 and centers on Jesus’ ascension into heaven. After Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus showed His followers that He is alive. (Matt. 28:9-10; Mark 16:14; Luke 24:36-43; John 20:16-17,19-20,26-27; 21:14) Jesus taught […]

Jesus Gave the Great Comission

Dear Parents, Thank you for continuing this journey of The Gospel Project® for Kids. This week, we learned about Jesus giving the Great Commission in Matthew 28:16-20 and Mark 16:15-16. After Jesus’ death and resurrection, He appeared to His disciples over a 40 day period. At one point, He appeared to over 500 disciples. Then […]

Jesus Served Breakfast by the Sea

Dear Parents, Thanks for bringing your kids this week to study the lesson from The Gospel Project® for Kids. This week’s Bible story is found in John 21:1-19. After Jesus’ resurrection and His appearance to the disciples, seven of the disciples returned to Galilee, near the Sea of Galilee. It was the same sea where […]

Jesus Appeared to His Disciples

Dear Parents, This week in The Gospel Project® for Kids, our journey takes us to Jesus’ appearance to the disciples in Luke 24:36-43; John 20:19-29; and Acts 1:3. Perhaps one of the most gracious things Jesus did after His resurrection was appear to the disciples, proving He was alive. The disciples were devastated to see […]

The Emmaus Disciples

Dear Parents, Thank you for continuing this journey of The Gospel Project® for Kids. This week we are in Luke 24:13-35 and Mark 16:12-13, as we discover Jesus’ teachings after His resurrection. Jesus’ death and resurrection should not have surprised the disciples. Sometimes Jesus spoke metaphorically about His death and resurrection. (See Matt. 12:39; Mark […]

Jesus’ Crucifixion and Resurrection

Dear Parents, Thank you for continuing this journey of The Gospel Project® for Kids. We look forward to hearing about the conversations you get to have with kids as you continue learning about the end of Jesus’ life and His glorious resurrection three days later! Why did Jesus have to die? Why couldn’t He just […]

Jesus on Trial

So Jesus was arrested. This was not the way the disciples thought things should happen, even though Jesus plainly told them it would. Just a few days before, the people in Jerusalem were welcoming Jesus and shouting praises to Him. The disciples didn’t know what to think. In fear, they left Jesus and ran away. […]

Jesus Prayed in the Garden

The wind was picking up now, blowing clouds across the moon, shrouding the garden in darkness. “Stay up with me?”  Jesus asked his friends.  They said yes and waited under the olive trees, but they were tired and soon feel asleep. Jesus walked ahead alone, into the dark.  He needed to talk to his heavenly […]

The Last Supper

Dear Parents, This week in The Gospel Project® for Kids, our journey takes us to The Last Supper in John 13–17. Although this is the same event as we focused on last week, this week we are emphasizing Jesus washing the disciples’ feet. Our story starts when Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, had approached […]

Preparation for Passover

Dear Parents, Thank you for continuing this journey of The Gospel Project® for Kids. This week, we talked about preparing for Passover and read from Matthew 26:17-30; Mark 14:12-26; and Luke 22:7-23. As the Passover celebration drew near, Jerusalem hummed with excitement. Everyone wondered if Jesus—teacher, miracle-worker, and prophet—would come for Passover. (John 11:56-57) The […]
