Purposes of the Church: Skuppet News Network - Early Childhood 5 Week Curriculum
This series teaches us what the purposes of the church are - to worship, belong, grow, serve, and share! Our hope is that the kids would understand that church is a safe, fun place for them to be a part of God’s family. We want them to see how each of the purposes plays out in the course of a weekend service.
In the teaching video, Pastor Steve and the Skuppets report on the purposes of the church and show how those purposes are a part of the weekend service. This video is a mix of Pastor Steve’s teaching and interviews at several of the Saddleback Kids campuses. The idea is to show what the purposes look like practically in Saddleback Kids or a church that uses Saddleback Kids curriculum.
