Chore charts. Report cards. Standardized tests. Athletic banquets. Kids are inundated with messages about their performance. Because performance—work and reward—is one of the basic structures of our lives, kids often grow up thinking, “I am what I am because of what I do . . . or because of what I’ve failed to do.” How different this message sounds from the biblical message of redemption by grace!
PROOF Pirates introduces kids to God’s amazing grace through a five-day, pirate-themed curriculum for use in Bible clubs and Vacation Bible School. It explains the doctrines of grace using the popular PROOF acronym with the book of Ephesians (God’s grace is Planned, Resurrecting, Outrageous, Overcoming, and Forever) so kids know that it is not their performance that makes them right with God.
PROOF Pirates teaches children to remember that what God says about them is more important than what others say, and that it is God’s grace that makes us who we are. Whether using a treasure map to teach about God’s sovereign plan or a skeleton to explain how God makes dead people walk, PROOF Pirates helps kids remember the one message we never want them to forget.
Dinner is served each evening, and adults are welcome to stay for a study led by Pastor Michael Mudlaff on the book entitled “Proof: Finding Freedom Through the Intoxicating Joy of Irresistible Grace” by Daniel Montgomery and Timothy Paul Jones.
