Shine encourages strong connections between church and home, such as:
  • Each quarter, a few songs from the Early Childhood Music CD are available to families to download for free.
  • Each quarter, a letter to families is included in the Primary, Middler, and Multiage teacher’s guides. The letter provides an overview of the quarter, including the page numbers of the story in the story Bible. The letter can also be printed from the Extras webpage (under the corresponding quarter and age level).
  • Faith Talk, short bulletin notes to families, are available online at no cost. They provide discussion starters and activities that correspond with each session of Shine.
  • Families can help their children memorize the scripture chosen during the quarter; the Bible memory passages for all age levels are accessible to families online.

Also see a sample worship service to introduce the curriculum.

Also see Stories of God's People, a sample of L.E.D., a junior youth devotional.
