Do you have a lesson for easter?

A great option for your Easter program is the BIG PICTURE ‘GOD LOVES YOU’ from the ‘Tell The World’ series. One of the lesson’s BIG IDEA is ‘GOD SO LOVED’ with the BIG POINT ‘Jesus died on the cross for you and for me’.

How is Hillsong Kids Big broken into themes and topics?

There are 3 BIG PICTURES per series. The BIG PICTURE is the overall theme for 4 to 5 lessons. The BIG IDEA is the topic for each lesson within the BIG PICTURE. The BIG POINT is the key learning outcome for each BIG IDEA. The BIG WORD is the Bible memory verse for each BIG PICTURE.

Do I have to use the same order of lessons?

No, you can use the BIG PICTURES in any order that works for you. The series are designed to be used in consecutive months; however, you are able to use these as stand alone months if that suits your needs.

What bible translation is used?

A number of different translations are used… i.e. NIV, NLT, NIrV

How many leaders are required?

The number of leaders required will depend on the number of children involved. Large group activities are designed to be led by an individual up the front, while other leaders participate with the children.
