2020 was an exciting year for Sharefaith Kids that saw our content library grow, brand new resources released, and thousands of churches join the Sharefaith Kids Family. Below is a brief year in review that will be followed by a sneak peak of what’s coming in 2021.
The core of Sharefaith Kids has always been our library of digital Sunday School lessons. This year we released 12 new lessons, growing our total library to over 140 lessons. If you missed any of these lessons, feel free to explore the chart below:
|Prayer in the Garden||Jesus is Betrayed||Jesus Before the Sanhedrin|
|Lydia is Baptized||The Man Born Blind||Lost Sheep & Coin|
|David and Samuel||David Fights Goliath||David, Saul, & Jonathan|
|David Spares Saul||David Becomes King||Flight To Egypt|
2020 was a year that allowed members to better connect families with the release of Sharefaith Kids family devotionals! This resource includes discussion questions, lesson videos, activity pages and is a convenient way for parents to continue the lesson at home.
30 Day Devotional Challenge
The events surrounding COVID made 2020 a particularly challenging year. One of the ways Sharefaith Kids was able to help was through our 30 Day Devotional Challenge. Over 1,500 families signed up for this challenge and explored the Word of God together!
Vacation Bible School
In February of 2020 Sharefaith Kids released a new VBS program titled “Courageous Faith,” this 5-day digital VBS explores the Story of Daniel and marks the 3rd VBS program available to Sharefaith Kids Yearly members.
Sharefaith Kids Essentials
Perhaps the biggest splash of 2020 was the release of Sharefaith Kids Essentials. This amazing offering expanded our Kids Ministry library with new content summarized below:
- Over 250 worship videos from Seeds Family Worship
- 50 stunning digital Bible comics
- 120 Spanish Bible videos.
Online Lesson Ebook
Another COVID-related resource was our ebook “How To Create Online Bible Lessons Your Kids Will Love.” This comprehensive How-To resource provided a step-by-step guide to creating video-driven online lessons for your Kids Ministry.
One of our members, Ashley Issacs, took our ebook and ran with it! If you’re looking for some inspiration check out our interview with her.
We concluded 2020 by surveying our members to measure what you wanted to see most in 2021 for Sharefaith Kids. Three items jumped to the top: Preschool Lessons, Games, and an improved library search/navigation. In 2021 we’ll deliver on all three!
2021 Sharefaith Kids Preview
