Going to Church: Lead a Longer, Happier Life


For some kids, going to church means getting up early and wearing nice clothes. Others are excited to sing, hang out with friends, and eat yummy snacks. Whichever category the kids in your life fit into, we all know the importance of going to church.

In this kids’ curriculum piece, you’ll learn what Barna, Gallup, Pew, and other researchers have to say about the rewards of going to church. You’ll also hear what excites the Schmidt sisters, missionary kids in Bolivia, about church in the U.S. and South America.

After sharing the short study, let the kids have some fun using the included word scramble and maze. Studies show that if children are not active in church by the age of 12, the odds of them becoming active drop significantly in their teenage years and beyond.
