A quality program, curriculum, or catechism cannot provide all that a child needs in order to grow in a life of faith. Parents must serve as principal Christian educators of their own children. When families find a way to slow down, taking time to enjoy God and pray together daily, intimacy grows with one another and with God.

Welcome to an adventure in children’s programming. It is rare that a children’s church leader finds his way to the book of Hebrews for lesson material when teaching boys and girls. The occasional memory verse or reference to chapter eleven’s "Hall of Faith," is about as deep as most curriculums dig. Dick Gruber has developed a complete quarter’s worth of lessons taken from one of the most exciting books in the New Testament. You have been provided with thirteen weeks of lesson ideas in outline form. Each is based on the individual chapters found in the book of Hebrews.
