The experiences and beliefs we want our children to have don't just happen! It's hard work. They demand our time and energy. God's command is that his commandments are to be on our hearts and we are to 'impress them on our children'. So this book is a starting point with simple and easy to prepare ways for you to guide and encourage your children in the faith and hopefully have fun while you are at it.
The JIGSAW curriculum has been designed by DDYC for Sunday Schools and is a resource that aims to support leaders to grow their children’s faith in Sunday Schools through the key areas of teaching, prayer and memory verses. Jigsaw –connecting God’s big picture, contains the complete material for a full year of Sunday school and is especially designed for a parish context.
It also contains exciting new features such as the provision of related Family Service talks, a tailor-made programme and advertising brochure and also the connection to faith at home with the provision of memory verses and ‘take home sheet’ templates for families to carry on learning after Sunday school is over.
The curriculum was developed over 3 years of research and writing with the intention that it would grow to provide 6 years worth of material.
Each parish using the curriculum is offered training, one-to-one advice and their own tailored curriculum folder containing:
