AIM: This teaching series is all about helping children to understand the gospel message. It is based around the 4 Points (the4points.com). This teaching series was first used in Easter 2017 at Ivy Church in Manchester as part of a church wide series on the 4 Points. The 4 Points have given permission for Ministry Ark to produce this teaching series. We do not make a profit from advertising their merchandise.
4 POINTS MERCHANDISE:
all 4 Points merchandise is available at the4points.com
These wristbands come in all different colors and sizes! Perfect for handing to each child as a reminder of the teaching, or to encourage your kids to take one for a friend.
The 4 Points tshirts are great for your team to wear as they teach the 4 Points series.
The 4 Points hoodies come in different colors and sizes, available for adults and children.
The gospel tracts that the 4 Points organisation uses are great for handing out to the kids as a little reminder of what has been taught. Yet they are also a great item to use for any outreach/ mission event that you might want to run alongside your teaching series.
THE 4 POINTS TEACHING SERIES
LESSON 1: GOD LOVES ME
BIG IDEA: GOD LOVES ME
STORY: THE LAST SUPPER
PASSAGE: MATTHEW 26:17-30
The 1st Point of the 4 Points series uses the heart symbol to show children that God is love and He loves His children.

BIG IDEA: I HAVE SINNED
STORY: PETER DENIES JESUS
PASSAGE: LUKE 22:54-62
The 2nd Point of the 4 Points series focusses on how we have sinned and all fall short of pleasing God. We are all in need of a Savior.
LESSON 3: JESUS DIED FOR ME
BIG IDEA: JESUS DIED FOR ME
STORY: JESUS’ DEATH
PASSAGE: LUKE 23:26-43
The 3rd Point of the 4 Point series walks children through one of the passages in the bible that speaks of Jesus’ death. Children will understand what this means for their own lives.
LESSON 4: I NEED TO DECIDE TO LIVE FOR GOD
BIG IDEA: I NEED TO DECIDE TO LIVE FOR GOD
STORY: JESUS’ RESURRECTION
PASSAGE: JOHN 20:24-29
The 4th Point challenges children to remember that they need to decide to live for God – it isn’t a given or something that they inherit. They must decide to follow Jesus for themselves.
