GCP Helping Families Teach Kids During Coronavirus

There sure are a lot of unknowns as we navigate this season of ministry:

  • How are we doing church as things keep changing?
  • How will we continue to do children’s, youth, and adult ministry?
  • How long is this going to last?

Yes, those are our questions, but we thank the Lord with you for what is known about our great and sovereign God, even in the midst of the unknowns around us! Great Commission Publications is here to help as you continue ministering to the children and families of your church with the truths of God’s Word. How?

One way in which we are helping families is with John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. This classic work of literature has been adapted for children ages 6-12. Second only to the Bible in copies sold in English, this story shares the life-changing gospel by following Christian on his way from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City. On his journey he will meet friends and foes, and liars and truth-tellers. And your kids and families can come along—learning how Jesus helps them on the way!

Children discover many important truths, including:

  • a deeper understanding of Christ and the gospel
  • the necessity of God’s Word, the Holy Spirit, and other believers for teaching, instruction, encouragement, and support
  • the true definition of a Christian
  • a picture of the Christian life—a pilgrim’s journey with ups and downs, distractions, difficulties, and even feelings of being cut off from God as a believer presses toward the grand end
  • insight into the heart and character of Christians and those who only claim to know Christ
