This unit demonstrates one way that the Christian Living key idea: Christians are called to love and serve all people can be used as a means of inquiry into the concept of service.
The children will explore that God loves and helps people and He gives people gifts and abilities to achieve His purposes in the world – to serve and love others. Children will build on knowledge of Bible Stories, characters from the Bible, who God is, what serving others means and how to serve others. This Unit opens up the possibility for future learning such as: God commands people to love others; the need to respect and care for the world which God created. Three key understandings are: 1. God loves and helps people. 2. God uses people to achieve His purposes in the world – to love and serve others. 3. God gives each person gifts and abilities to respond to human need.
