Children and Family Resources

Our country is facing some unprecedented changes! Knowing God is in control and has a plan and purpose through all these events, we all continue trusting Him. Our desire is to continue the mission to share the Good News of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, with children, despite the circumstances and restrictions. We are pleased to share several resources to continue your learning of God's Word during this time of restricted gatherings. 

                    Missions Ignite
Children, families, and churches -- you are invited to join us for true, and often breath-taking adventures of missionaries, men and women who have dedicated themselves to God so others may hear and know about the one true God!  Featured missionary stories of people like Cameron Townsend (founder of Wycliffe Bible Translators), Isobel Kuhn (a pioneer missionary to China with OMF), John Cook, and others!  It is reported that 80% of missionaries on the field today, sensed God's call to serve Him before they were 10 years old!  We must expose our children to missions.  These short episodes may be used each week for a continued true story.

In the first century, a group of children meet together to talk about what they've seen and heard about Jesus. Some believe Jesus is the Son of God. But others think Jesus may just be tricking the people.

The children follow Jesus around, witness His miracles, and listen to Him teach. Jesus raises a girl from the dead, calls imperfect people like tax collectors to follow Him, teaches everyone to be kind and gracious to each other, and lets a woman wash His feet with tears. He teaches in parables no one really understands, calms a raging storm, gives sight to the blind, and helps those who no one sees as worth helping. He shows the children an amazing, powerful, and kind way to live. Benjamin and Sarah talk to the children watching their story about Jesus and what it means to believe who He is and accept Him as their Savior.

Discussion Questions

  1. How do the kids learn about Jesus?
  2. Name three miracles Jesus performs.
  3. Name three things Jesus teaches.
  4. What does Jesus mean to you?
  5. Is He your Savior?

The Truth Chasers Club® is an exciting Bible correspondence club designed to disciple children and adults. God has allowed us to reach over 499,000 Truth Chasers since February of 1999!

Hundreds of completed lessons are received in the mail daily!   Dedicated volunteers come from all over the nation to help make a difference in children’s lives through the ministry of the Truth Chasers Club.  They are "the heart" of the ministry as they grade each lesson by hand.  They also pray for each student’s requests and include hand-written notes to encourage the students.  Every lesson is graded, prayed over, and sent back to the student, along with the next lesson in the series.  This is a personal ministry where kids are ministered to every day!
