WHAT ARE THE POSSIBILITIES FOR KIDS? When Jesus’ teachings on love, trust and obedience are taught. Where faith in Jesus turns lives away from sin and toward God. WHAT IF? … You had a curriculum that taught kids the practical spiritual truths that inspire them to seek a personal relationship with Jesus? A relationship where they fully trust Him and turn to Him for the answers to all their questions. The kind of relationship where Jesus is truly their Lord and Savior. A relationship that brings about tangible and positive change within them. Which in turn, will affect the people around them in a positive way that leads them to Jesus too.

JESUS IN JEANS™ shares Jesus' life and teachings with kids, K - 5th grade, in a relevant way that will help them relate to him and apply his truths to their everyday life. Based on Luke 2:40 "There the child grew strong in body and wise in spirit. And the grace of God was on him." our goal is to include everything kids need to grow strong in body, live wise in spirit and enjoy God's grace in everyday life. What an amazing witness they would be for Christ if we partner together to reach that goal! 

Michele Triplett, Editor of Jesus In Jeans, explains the purpose of Jesus In Jeans Curriculum, why Jesus is in jeans, the 3 learning experiences each lesson is written around, and how each lesson is structured.

THREE PHASES OF LEARNING: Each lesson is written with three things in mind. First, we get kids to think about the main focus of that day’s lesson. Once they’re thinking about it, we want to help them understand what the Bible has to say about the lesson in a way they can relate to it in their everyday life. When kids understand the lesson, we encourage them to look for ways they can apply the teachings of Jesus in their daily lives. So your basic Jesus in Jeans lesson layout will look something like this:

Optional Small Group / Optional Large Group
Praise & Worship
Welcome Intro / Think About It! Skit
Focus Story
Focus Frame
Optional Large Group Game

Small Groups K – 5th
Focus Prayer


  • Teachers guide

  • Focus Stories – Engaging bible stories that connect kids to scripture

  • Focus Frame - Object lessons that make the Focus Fact and Focus Verse relevant

  • Focus Facts – Main point we want the kids to take home with them

  • Focus Verse – Main verse we want them to have hidden in their hearts

  • Large Group - Focused "hands on" activities & games

  • Small Group - Focus on Jesus in me & Jesus through me

  • Focus Prayer – to close out each lesson with their focus on God

  • "STUFF YOU NEED" list - all supplies combined in one place for easy prep time

  • Weekly Power Points – Creative visual slide presentation teaching aides provided on CD

  • Weekly Drama skits or videos - Funny skits or videos that get kids brains focused on main theme of the lesson

  • Review Q&A with suggested games to help review each month

  • Traditional Format includes a binder with all lessons printed and CD containing all files needed

We’d rather give you too much content than not enough. So we’ve designed the lessons so that you can include the important stuff first then add optional activities as time allows, based on the length of your service. If time does not allow you to include the entire lesson, you could teach the optional sections during the midweek service (if your church has one) or as a small group during the week before or after the main lesson is taught.
