Building Upon our Foundation: Curriculum Update

For more than five years, Vista Kids Community (2 years through 8th grade) has been using KidMo and Lil’K curriculum from Orbit Media Group.

It is time for a change.

In the early days of Vista, Laura Nelson and KidMo rescued us from curriculum writing exhaustion. We were a small community with few resources and personnel, running a church out of Dublin Coffman High School. I still firmly believe that God gave us the Nelson family at the exact moment we needed them. I know those of us involved with Kids Community at that time would agree. The video lessons of KidMo and Lil’K allowed us to run classes with volunteers and paid staff. We lacked the people power to provide seasoned teachers in every age group.

It is time for a change.

Vista has grown into a thriving church spanning two sites. We now have the depth and breath of parents and volunteers who are passionate about living out core Gospel values: worshipful, relational, missional.

Once again, God has provided what we need to launch Kids Community into a new worshipful space.

We have a team that knows Jesus, knows teaching, knows parents and knows kids. They know the Gospel and the importance of  its message to families. This team is meeting every-other Saturday, now through March, to examine the next curriculum step for Kids Community. We will be researching many options from several companies. All of the options will be Gospel centered. We welcome your input.

What would be most important to you in choosing a Kids Community curriculum?
