Teach the "Whys" with Anchored


Over the many, many years where churches have had intentional Children's Ministries, we have done a good job when it comes to teaching the "whats" - what the Bible says and therefore what we believe. But for some reason we never focused on teaching the "whys" - why we are able to believe what we believe. While we absolutely must teach the "whats" we also must teach the "whys" - when we do not, we end up with the results we are seeing in families throughout our churches - where young people are turning away from their faith and many of them are turning to atheism (as Barna's research shows), and growing numbers of people are saying they do not believe the Bible is true (as Gallup's research shows.) If we are going to stop these trends, we must start teaching the "whys" with as much intentionality as we show when we teach the "whats".

While there are many excellent curriculum resources available to help you teach the "whats" effectively, there are not resources to help you teach the "whys" - until now. Anchored is designed to come alongside whatever curriculum you are currently using to teach the "whats". It does not replace your current curriculum - it supplements it and allows you to teach the "whys". It also includes resource for parents and grandparents to use at home to continue the learning in ways which will engage the entire family.

There are solid reasons we are able to believe God is real, the Bible is true, God and science DO go together and God is good - we must teach these reasons, these "whys" to the children we love so they are able to grow up with a confident faith. Check Anchored out today - you will find sample lessons at this link and are able to order Anchored at this link.
