"In the past, I really struggled to find a curriculum for our younger children to use during our mid-week, intergenerational ministry. To be honest, I didn’t think that what I was looking for even existed. In my mind, I envisioned something a little more progressive with a true message of God’s love. I really wanted to avoid cheesy illustrations or flashy trinkets. After searching online, asking colleagues for suggestions, and trying to modify other materials to meet our needs, I was so thankful to finally find An Illustrated Earth by Illustrated Ministry. The curriculum is absolutely beautiful. The lessons are extremely user-friendly with very little prep required, yet they are beautifully profound with fantastic illustrations. We turn the coloring pages into little books that the children complete and take home each week. They are a wonderful way for the children to share what they learned with their families.
"I am so excited to begin using An Illustrated Compassion with our intergenerational ministry in the coming months. To really get people of all ages involved, I will definitely be getting the posters that accompany the curriculum. My plan is to have the posters laid-out on tables during the worship part of our evening. We have already used the Advent and Lent posters in worship on Sunday mornings, so An Illustrated Compassion posters will be a wonderful addition to our mid-week ministry. An evening of community, coloring, singing, worshiping…beautiful!"
