This series is meant to teach the kids how Jesus wants us to live as illustrated through his parables. Our hope is that the kids would walk away with a better understanding of how Jesus wants us to live through the illustrations Jesus used in the parables.
In the teaching video, the Skuppets and some of their friends spend some time around the campfire sharing stories including their own parable. Our hope is that by the end of the video the children understand why Jesus taught that week’s parable and how he wants them to live.
