P.R.A.Y. has already announced some of the “new and improved” features of the revised God and Me Curriculum (i.e. the Student Workbook will contain all of the GAMEBox handouts, the Counselor Manual will display pages from the Student Workbook in a side-by-side format, and the Adult Mentor Workbook will feature snapshots of the Student Workbook to closely connect the mentor curriculum to the student lessons).
But what about the actual curriculum? What changes were made? For those of you who want the short and sweet version, the revised God and Me curriculum is the “same great program” infused with new lessons and activities. The focus is still “Best Friends with Jesus” and children still make a GAMEBox. Although some of the Bible passages changed, the focus of each lesson stayed the same. Here is the outline itself (changes are marked with an asterisk*).
