There ain’t no party like a “Pixel Party!” Hold up, wait a minute—you’ve never heard of a “Pixel Party?” Let’s fix that! A single pixel by itself is nothing too special, it’s just a small square. But when you put a bunch of those pixels together, they combine to form a picture. During the “Pixel Party,” kids will use colored sticky notes to form pictures that help tell the Big Bible Story. Moreover, as kids hear stories from the Gospels about life-changing encounters with Jesus, they’ll get a picture of the incredible love that Jesus has for us.

*Recommended Use Dates: January 7 – February 4, 2024
*Each GO! unit is part of a 12-month scope and sequence that takes kids on a chronological journey through the Bible. The scope and sequence is designed to follow the Christian calendar so that the Christmas lessons land on Christmas and the Easter lessons land on Easter. The “Recommended Use Dates” indicate where the unit falls within the one-year curriculum calendar. You are able to use the unit at any time of the year that works best for you, but by following the “Recommended Use Dates,” you can easily transition into using the other GO! units to tell the remainder of the Big Bible Story.

*** There will be glimpses of God’s salvation plan throughout the year, but there will be four lessons where that plan is communicated clearly and kids will have an opportunity to respond. Those lessons are denoted with *** next to the lesson title.
