What is Shine?

Shine: Living in God’s Light is a dynamic Sunday school curriculum for age 3 to grade 8 that engages Christian communities in their life together by

  • calling children to experience the transforming power of God’s love.
  • nurturing trust in God and inviting children to follow Jesus.
  • encouraging imaginative, interactive biblical storytelling.
  • exploring the meaning of the Bible within the gathered community.
  • cultivating the inner life of the Spirit through spiritual practices.

Shine takes your children through important themes and characters in the Bible in three years.
