catechism for kids
   
 

We believe...

  • The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
  • The Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms contain the system of doctrine taught in the Scriptures.
  • It is the duty of Christian parents to lovingly and patiently instruct their children in the principles of the Christian faith.

 

 



 

   About Catechism for Kids

Catechism for Kids is a family-owned business located in upstate New York. Our mission is to provide quality educational materials to families and churches to help children learn the basics of the Christian faith. Particularly, we emphasize a historical perspective and use of the catechism.

The question-and-answer format of the catechism is wonderful for training children to memorize, but we work to ensure that children can do more than merely repeat the words. Children should be able to understand. Our curriculum always seeks to provide children with the means to decode difficult vocabulary and comprehend complex theological ideas.

In addition, Catechism for Kids seeks to provide appropriate modifications for children with disabilities. We believe that children who have language comprehension deficits are often overlooked by the story-telling focus of most Sunday School curriculum. Children who have autism or other disorders should be provided with educational material which will help them learn and grow in faith. With this goal in mind, we produced a curriculum for special needs children, Special Catechisms for Special Kids..

Catechism for Kids always seeks new ways to expand and improve the resources that we offer. We welcome any comments or suggestions.

Thank you for considering our curriculum. We look forward to serving you.
