Deep Blue Connects is a comprehensive three-year Bible study with stories organized by theme: Family, Community, and World. This year’s stories focus on the role of families—siblings, parents, friends, grandparents, foster families, church families, the list goes on—and what we can learn about God from these close relationships. This new format is designed to help churches and caregivers work together to teach children about faith by exploring how families work together, communicate, and worship God.

It’s a big world. And it needs all the love it can get. Love In A Big World creates meaningful interactions with caring adults. Far more than just a course of study, Love In A Big World is a character education movement—one that provides both social and emotional learning, and that helps kids develop the kind of positive personality traits that will empower them in everyday life. Through a flexible and customizable curriculum, it uses relevant and diverse stories, Scripture, and life lessons to teach kids to love God, love other people, and to change the world by acting on that love. Love In A Big World is a perfect extension to your already-in-place K–8 student programming, like your Sunday school, VBS, Wednesday night children’s programs, and even summer camp! We hope to support your ministry by further developing that “whole-child” education everyone desires for their students.
