Hangar 252: Where Kids are Shaped to Discover ...

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
  • By the time children reach the fifth grade, we want them to understand and own these 3 Basic Truths (modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52), so they’re reinforced each week. We also focus on a core virtue each month. This virtue is supported by the weekly bottom line—the learning aim for the day.

    On the whole, "252 Basics" (the "orange"-based curriculum strategy for elementary kids) utilizes Bible stories, a core virtue, and a memory verse each month while offering engaging presentations of the 3 Basic Truths. We also throw in some handy illustrations of how God works in our lives to make us more like Him. See promo VIDEO (click) about 252 for elementary kids.

    Why?

    Show a three-year-old a rainbow and his eyes pop open, he laughs and murmurs something that sounds semi-close to English. That’s wonder. Show a third grader how pleasing God connects to honoring her parents and she will most likely look at you funny and continue eating her pizza. That’s discovery.

    As a teacher, church leader, or parent you want a curriculum that will help you connect the love and worship of God to good decision-making for your elementary school students. You want something that will help them see the value of respecting authority and treating their friends like they are human, not SpongeBob®.

    You need it to be simple. You would love it to be flexible. You want it to suit your individual needs.

    Time to go to the basics.
