The Gospel Project has been used by nearly 1.5 million adults, teens and children since its inception in 2012 – and that’s just in Sunday School.
Two new Gospel Project resources are being introduced to help families and small groups engage in discussion about scripture and how each text fits into its storyline. Gospel Foundations and The Gospel Project for Kids: Home Edition, each with a video component, are available for preorder from LifeWay Christian Resources at lifeway.com.
With many congregations having adopted a home-based small group model, Gospel Foundations was created to meet the needs of churches’ discipleship efforts outside the walls of the church building.
Home Edition, meanwhile, is designed to help families – whether they homeschool or engage in traditional education – supplement biblical education and child discipleship.
“We are grateful to see how The Gospel Project curriculum has been embraced by the church so far,” said Michael Kelley, groups ministry director for LifeWay. “These new offerings will help people in small groups in living rooms and families around the dinner table see more clearly the beauty of the gospel story.”
Gospel Foundations is a 42-session resource that walks people through the story of scripture and shows how it all points to Christ – while allowing for a few weeks’ break – and still complete it in a year.
Home Edition, meanwhile, was born out of a conviction that parents are the primary disciplers of their children and the church is called to partner with them.
“We’ve had so many parents who homeschool asking for a resource they can use to teach the Bible,” said Brian Dembowczyk, managing editor of The Gospel Project. “And we’re glad to be able to address that need with this resource. But we’re also excited to give parents a way to disciple their kids in the home.”
The LifeWay Kids team has built six semesters’ worth of Home Edition materials. Two 18-session volumes per year will be released over the next three years.
