Becoming Like Christ
Helping Children Follow Jesus
by J. Haywood, W. Heflin, K. Metcalf-Eickhoff and R. Sciretti
The faith development of our children is extraordinarily important. Truly, it takes a village of a loving family, caring teachers, and prayerful ministers alongside a community of believers in the congregation to help children learn and grow in the stories of our Christian faith.
Becoming Like Christ: Helping Children Follow Jesus, first produced by CBF in 2009, is an updated and revised resource that seeks to aid families and ministers together who want to develop the faith of their children. This curriculum can be used on Wednesday nights, Sunday mornings, retreats, or other special events. Some Ministers of Children have used it for Baptism/Affirmation of Faith classes with their children. The writers have written the curriculum in such a way that it can be useful in many different settings based on your context.
Becoming Like Christ: Helping Children Follow Jesus is a resource CBF is including in the Dawnings Suite of Resources. Dawnings invites participants to ask, “God, what would you have me to do?” and “God, what would you have me to be?” as they participate in the three processes of Visioning, Forming and Engaging. Be sure to look for other resources in the Dawnings Suite of Resources available from CBF.
