Have you heard it said that our kids are the church of tomorrow? Not true. God calls kids. He speaks to them. He hears and answers their child-like, faithful prayers. He knew them before they were born.

That’s where ROOTS: Fruit of the Spirit comes in!

What is ROOTS: Fruit of the Spirit?

ROOTS: Fruit of the Spirit is a new children’s curriculum designed to fuel the fires of a deep, holy, authentic experience with God in the hearts of children. They learn to know God, not just know about him. For teachers it’s powerful yet accessible, rich with content. Unlike other curricula where lessons are designed only for one week each, ROOTS can be flexible, allowing teachers to stay with one topic as needed or move to another. It’s unlike any other and helps children grow strong and deep ROOTS in Jesus!

Each lesson is provided in two formats: one designed for in-person teaching and the other designed for online teaching. Every ROOTS lesson contains enough content for up to three gathering and the suggested schedules give teachers guidance for lesson planning.
