One day when I’m grown up


Grow, grow, grow
See how my love for God grows and grows

This series will equip and inspire children to live as children of God should. They will know, choose and do what is right, thereby growing spiritually. As a result they will bear flowers and fruit that will glorify God.

During the first term children will learn in a playful, exciting way about the complicated and wonderful workings of our bodies. And then they learn about eating spiritual food that is good for them, exercising their spiritual muscles and having backbone. In the second term they visit the animal kingdom and learn many lessons about the life and choices of a child of God. After the winter holidays they look at the world around them. Stones and water, air and weather patterns will show them that the whole world tells us about God! These things will also show them what they have to do if they want their relationship with Him to be strong. As the year draws to a close, the children will take a look at the gardening: digging in compost, watering, pruning, fighting pests and sharing in the joy of flowers and fruit. And through it all, they learn to tend to their own lives so that they, too, can grow spiritually right in front of our grateful eyes!

Hettie Brittz writes about Grow, grow, grow:

Chrissie has the rare gift of being able to put deep spiritual concepts into a grubby child’s hands like polished diamonds, together with clay and crayons – visibly, tangibly, brilliantly. Her material is full of truth and reality. I believe that children and children’s workers will look forward to the lessons each week. Parents will see miracles happen in their children’s hearts and observe a fresh, exuberant spiritual growth developing.

One day when I’m grown up
We dream about one day yesterday, think about yesterday, but today we DO!
Author: Chrissie Kritzinger
Illustrator: Magriet Brink

“One day when I’m grown up I’m going to be an elephant!” my middle child, three at the time, declared. At that stage her sister wanted to be a mommy and a teacher, “and weekends my husband can look after the children, then I am going to be an astronaut.” “One day when I’m grown up”… Yes, children often dream about what they want to be.
Children also love stories about long ago. In these lessons children will dream about becoming a nature conservationist and meet Adam; a builder and meet Nehemiah; a lion tamer and meet Daniel. They will get to know various characters from long ago, learn from their mistakes and be inspired by their lives. That brings us to the most important of days: TODAY. In this series, children will dream about one day, and go back in time to discover Bible characters from whom they can learn. That is why we bring together the dreams and the stories and also think about things that the children can do and believe TODAY.

  Do you know Jesus?
Is He your Lord, your Hero, your King?
Author: Chrissie Kritzinger
Illustrator: Magriet Brink

The narratives will open windows concerning who Jesus is, what He came to do, what He said, and how He touched lives while He walked on earth; and how He can do so today. Hopefully the children will also be inspired to learn more about Jesus for the rest of their lives. At a deeper level we ask ourselves: “Do you know Jesus?”  By this we mean: Do you have a personal relationship with Him? Is He your Lord, your Hero your King? Is He the One that you turn to when you are afraid, happy, thankful or sad? My prayer is that every child, who will take part in this series, will develop a deeper personal relationship with Jesus, so that each of them will also be able to talk about “My Jesus” with shining eyes … The series is subdivided into four sub-themes, one for each term. During the first term we tell, in broad terms, the story of Jesus with the aid of certain “hats that He wore” or roles that He played. Then we will learn to know Him as a Miracle worker and in the following term we listen to the parables that He told. Lastly, we hear how Jesus describes Himself when He says: “I am …”

"I find the KidsXpress curriculum is fresh, easy, creative and simple to understand. I find it particularly good when working with a cross cultural and bilingual group of learners and facilitators, we’ve used it in our children’s church and adapted it for our Holiday Clubs and have had a good response from parents, team and children alike. I recommend it to you for your camps, youth groups, schools and children’s churches any place were children gather to learn more about God."

Kinderpinkster is 'n groot geleentheid in ons Jeugbediening. Daar word vooraf hard beplan, dekor gemaak en versierings gedoen - ouers en kinders is ewe opgewonde om te sien watter avontuur ons hierdie jaar gaan beleef. . . En vanjaar is oud en jonk verras met 'n fantastiese reeks deur KidsXpress: Jesus sê: Ek is, ‘n Vakansie op die plaas! Kinders sowel as volwasse helpers het geleer wie Jesus sê HY IS en was verwonderd oor hoe maklik die plaastema dit vir almal gemaak het om te onthou. Ons gemeente het kosbare oomblikke saam beleef waar groot en klein die waarde van Jesus se identiteit beter kon verstaan. Ek is, want Hy is binne my!

Werner en Tania. Ek sê baie dankie vir die voorreg om die Jesus sê: Ek is-reeks te kon gebruik. Ek het dit in die plaaslike laerskool met ongeveer 700 kinders gebruik asook twee byeenkomste by die Curro privaatskool (150 graad 1-7's). Ek het by my eie styl en omstandighede aangepas, maar die hele konsep het wonderlik gewerk. Dankie vir die Ek-is-lied! Dit was 'n treffer. Ek kan KidsXpress aanbeveel.

Ek wil darem ook net dankie sê vir die materiaal en die groot werk wat julle doen. Ook net 'n bietjie terugvoer. Ek en my vrou is van die begin van 2012 in Waterberg Gemeente (Nylstroom/Modimolle). Ek is verantwoordelik vir die gesinsbediening in die gemeente en gevolglik het die Gemeente se Kinderpinkster ons verantwoordelik geword. Ons het die afgelope 3 jaar van julle materiaal gebruik gemaak. Kinders van die dorp (ook ander kerke) word uitgenooi na hierdie geleentheid en dit is 'n groot jaarlikse hoogtepunt vir die kinders. Ons het gedurende die pas afgelope pinkstertyd elke aand tussen 70 en 110 opgewonde kinders bedien! Die terugvoer wat ons gekry het, is dat selfs ouers gevra het dat ons asseblief net nooit moet ophou daarmee, want hulle sien die positiewe gevolge daarvan in hulle kinders. Die kinders blom in daardie tyd en hulle babbel sommer spontaan oor die dinge wat hulle leer en dit stimuleer sommer almal se deelname aan geloofsgesprekke in die huisgesinne!

Enige jeugwerker of predikant wat al ‘n kinderbyeenkoms van begin tot einde self moes beplan en aanbied, weet hoeveel voorbereiding en tyd dit in beslag neem. KidsXpress se reekse is hierin vir ons ‘n groot hulp, want nie alleen is dit inhoudelik van hoë kwaliteit nie, die netjiese en weldeurdagte formaat maak dit heerlik gebruikersvriendelik. Die omvattende lys van benodigdhede en stap-vir-stap dagprogram by elke les maak dat geen aanbieder - hoe onervare ookal – oorweldig of onseker hoef te voel nie.
