Sorting, sifting, scrolling and clicking your way through the abundance of available children’s ministry curriculum options to determine what’s best for your context can be an overwhelming and time consuming task. But it’s an important one! After all, the way we tell God’s story matters, whether the learners are 3 or 103.
The Ten Question Tool for Choosing Curriculum was developed by Faith Formation Ministries to support you in the curriculum decision making process. It features ten topics to consider when making your selection; each with a question or two that you’ll want answered before determining your choice. Although the goal is to be able to answer “yes” to each of the questions, you’ll want to place the most weight on the answers for the first two topics on the list—Theology, Scope & Sequence—because while you can adjust the curriculum to meet the other criterion, the first two items are the foundation upon which a strong curriculum is built.
We hope that this tool will give you clarity and save you time. But mostly we hope it will help you choose resources that will nurture a faith that engages the head, heart and hands of your children. Download the free tool today, share it with those making curriculum decisions in your congregation, and use it to evaluate the children’s ministry resources you’re considering.
