    • Developed as part of our “Journey with Me” workshop find the PDF below which includes a great list of Sunday School plans that can help your Sunday School kids explore the issues around refugee justice and displacement.
  • Kids Helping Kids: Refugees
    • “The Kids Helping Kids: Refugees curriculum explores questions around what it’s like to be a refugee and provides opportunities for making a significant difference in the lives of refugee children around the world. The twelve-part curriculum is a short (5-10 min) supplement to your regular Christian formation time.”
  • Sunday School Lesson: Refugees in the Bible
    • A single Sunday School lesson, the aim of which is “to explore biblical refugee characters and how to love/welcome refugees in [a child’s own] country.”
