what is tru?
Tru is family-centered curriculum that equips parents to lead children as primary spiritual mentors and allows the church to create space for authentic, relationship center discipleship and faith formation. With the Big God Story at the center of worship, kids experience God's word, Jesus and Lord and the gift of the Holy Spirit in dynamic and influential ways each week through large group and small group time.
the big god story
We define the “The Big God Story” as God’s ENTIRE story. It incorporates all of history, stretching from Genesis to Revelation and beyond. In the past, Christian instruction has told fragmented stories of God, Jesus, or other people in the Bible, as if they were not part of a greater narrative. Tru communicates each Bible story within the context of The Big God Story, so the Bible becomes much more than just a collection of short stories. Each lesson is centered on God and how He works in our lives.
HomeFront Weekly half sheets are designed to help parents make being in God’s Word, together as a family, a priority in their homes. Each week, parents have the opportunity to read God’s Word with their children in a fun setting … and the passage they read together will allow them to prepare for the weekend experience at church. Kids get to hear a specific part of The Big God Story from their parents first!
