Sunday SchoolBy Design

An Introduction:
For multiple years, the leadership of WBC has worked to bring about an intentional approach to carrying out the Mission of God. With the addition of several staff members and the settling of Elders and Deacons there has been a significant "synchronizing of watches" and it seems the time has come to take another step toward the common goal of seeing the Vision of God played out locally, nationally, and globally. One vital area of intentional ministry is toward families of WBC who are currently parenting children. We are calling this effort By Design: An intentional Approach to Serving the Families of WBC.

By Design:
The By Design Curriculum is an intentional approach to reaching and teaching the children of WBC. It is a three year curriculum covering the entire Bible from Genesis through Revelation. Its intent is to enable Bible literacy, emphasis the one Story with Jesus as the Center, teach the theological DNA of WBC, practice by the approach the Simeon Trust methodology, show how Jesus is the fulfillment of the Seed Promise and Blood Picture, know that the first word of the Gospel is done, not do; the non-negotiable link between our justification, sanctification, and glorification. Finally, the desire of the curriculum is for it to be learned in community with other believers.

Our "Why?": The motive for such a focus is five-fold.

  1. To provide a coordinated approach to family ministries.
    • So the left hand and right hand know what each is doing.
    • This will seek to take Sunday Morning Children Activity and our current AWANA program under "one roof."
  2. To provide a consolidated approach to family ministries.
    • To "de-busy" families. There might be multiple activities but there will be only one "agenda."
  3. To provide a content rich approach to family ministries.
    • Reprioritizing a pattern of becoming Christ-Exalting, Word-Centered, Grace-Based, and Global-Impacting.
    • Avoiding the "mile wide and an inch thick" approach to ministry.
  4. To evangelize our "lowest hanging fruit." We have an enormous opportunity to evangelize, edify, and equip our own children right here within our own fellowship.
  5. To address 2 Tim. 2:2 by protecting our theological DNA internally and through our families promote our theological DNA externally. We will actively and intentionally seek to reach the next generation of gospel-rich, Jesus-loving, church-attending followers.
