What is “The Gospel Project for Kids” curriculum?
This curriculum is designed to walk children of all ages chronologically through the Bible in order to understand how all of Scripture testifies to one unifying story, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As we partner with families in joining Jesus, our prayer is to create a gospel-centered culture through discipleship that changes how we understand the Bible and how we live in light of it. We want our kids to recognize that Jesus isn’t just part of the Biblical story, He’s the whole point of the story. And His story is life-transforming. Because when we encounter the Gospel, it changes our hearts and leads us to action.
What is The Gospel Project At Home and how can I use it?

What is Equip 28?
Equip 28 is a weekly discipleship group experience for 4th & 5th graders. "Equip" means to prepare, ready, train, or provide with abilities and understanding; and "28" represents the Great Commission given by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20 to go and make disciples. This discipleship group is designed to teach students to take ownership of their faith as they deepen their understanding and relationship with God. Students will engage in critical thinking, peer discussion, and personal study of Scripture to build a foundation based on Biblical truths and principles as they prepare to join Jesus and interact with the world around them.
What about baby/child dedications?
We believe that God entrusts parents with the responsibility to guide and teach their children in the faith. When parents choose to participate in a baby/child dedication service, they are acknowledging God’s sovereignty and blessing in their lives and declaring their commitment to raise their child in Biblical truth to know and follow Jesus. The dedication service is also an affirmation of the church’s role to partner with families in discipleship and community. CCC celebrates an annual (typically in the spring) baby/child dedication service with members who desire to make this commitment. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
What about baptism for kids?
We believe that when your child wants to be baptized, they are taking an important step towards owning and growing in their faith. Baptism should always follow salvation, it is not a means of salvation. It is an indication of a heart that is willing to follow and obey Jesus. Because of this, it is important that this decision is made and fully understood by your child. As parents, we should continue to live out our faith as we follow God's calling to raise our children in Truth and entrust our child's heart to Him. A Baptism Guide for Kids is a helpful resource for parents, as they pray and seek God’s wisdom in guiding their child to discover truths, and for kids, as they come to a conclusion about their own salvation and baptism.
