Axis for Youth & Parents

We have partnered with axis.org to provide great resources for youth & parents to engage in important conversations about faith, culture, maturity, & tough issues. Get access to all these great resources at no cost:

Greenwich Children's Lessons

Our Preschool Director, Jennifer Boyer has created a series of excellent Bible lessons to help kids engage with stories from Scripture. More content is added regularly throughout the school year.

 

This is a great resource for family devotions, kids who are unable to attend church programs, or anyone who wants to help children apply the Bible in practical ways that kids can understand. 

New City Catechism

We are memorizing & studying the New City Catechism, a great resource for understanding the essentials of the Christian faith using simple questions & answers. To learn more or join our Faith at Home mailing list, contact Associate Pastor Eric Beckman, ebeckman@greenwichpres.org.

Other Family Devotional Ideas

There are thousands of Bible Studies available in RightNow so we encourage you to explore what they have and find what works for your family. Here are two we are recommending as a starting point for Family Devotionals.

What's in the Bible?

From the creator of Veggie Tales. Animated friends explain the entire Bible to your kids in a fast-paced and fun-filled series. Volume 8 contains TWO 25-minute episodes:

  • Poems in the Bible? Learn about the Bible's poetry, the amazing story of Job, and Psalms- the Bible's song book!
  • Wisdom from Above: Solomon shares his wisdom in the book of Proverbs, then Sunday School Lady finds the meaning in Ecclesiates and explains how the Song of Solomon- a book of love songs-ended up in the Bible!

The Real God

There is a deep sense of unease in our world right now, especially in the midst of this pandemic. Sometimes, our distorted view of God is at the root of our struggle to face challenges in life. Join Chip Ingram in this multi-faceted study of seven attributes of God. Your family can discover The Real God with eight different family devotional stories. Help them to see what God has to say about who He truly is through His word. Because to know the real God—changes everything. Free Devotional Guide included at RightNow Media.
