Through our curriculum, the Gospel Project for Kids, we take children on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Your children will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. They engage through story, activities, scripture memorization, and prayer.  Each week, we send families lesson overviews and valuable links so that parents can engage with their children to prepare them for the coming Sunday's lesson. 

SUNDAY, MAY 28 | God Takes Sin Seriously  

  • BIBLE PASSAGE: Ephesians 2
  • MEMORY VERSE: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
  • BIG PICTURE QUESTION:
  • Kingdom Kidz Junior: What is the punishment for sin? The punishment for sin is separation from God.
  • Senior Kingdom Kidz: What is the fair payment for sin? The fair payment for sin is death.
  • CHRIST CONNECTION: God takes sin seriously. We deserve to die for our sins, but God loves us and sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus rose from the dead. Everyone who trusts in Him has life with God forever.  

What comes to mind when you think about sin? Consider your emotions—does the thought of sin make you sad? Angry? Indifferent? To fully understand the beauty of salvation and the power of grace, you must take sin seriously.  

Consider what our sin says about God. Sin says God may be powerful, but not enough to deserve ultimate authority in our lives. Sin exploits God’s mercy and disrespects His patience. Sin says God is not worthy of our obedience. Sin isn’t just a mistake; it is serious. Why? Our sins are first and foremost against an infinitely holy God.  

As you prepare your children for their lesson time this coming Sunday, take a moment to reflect on your sin and to thank God for His mercy. Pray that God would graciously reveal to kids their sinful nature and desperate need for salvation as well as His holiness and provision of Jesus as the Saviour they need.
