Since 2008, Vicki has been developing an interfaith curriculum for Jubilee! Community Church. The curriculum uses the Christian Bible as the foundational ancient text and as a jumping off point to learn about other cultures and religious practices. For example, when kids read the story of Joseph, they also read the story from the Muslim Tales of the Prophets. When they read about Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, they also learn about meditation as a form of prayer and make Buddhist prayer flags. We want the children who experience our Sunday School curriculum to be unafraid – unafraid to explore their relationship to the Divine, unafraid to question their own viewpoints, unafraid to explore other ancient texts and faith practices, unafraid to grow. Check out the links above for additional details.

“I have realized how absolutely incredible this program is! Each week I am blessed and excited to lead the kids through it…. THANK YOU! I cannot say enough positive things about it. You have a true gem here….My kiddos love Wednesday nights now and our attendance has almost tripled. I have parents staying “to help” that sit in the back and soak it all up….I have at least three sets of parents who 6 months ago would have used the word Islam only in a derogatory sense. My husband overheard one of those dads sharing the story I read from the Qur’an this past Sunday. Talk about bringing some peace. If you knew that man you would understand what a huge deal that is. THANK YOU!” Children’s Minister, United Methodist Church, SC

“We just finished our interfaith unit! We combined the Peace unit of your curriculum with materials from the World Peace Village. Each week we looked at a different religious tradition, comparing a lesson of peace from that tradition with a lesson of peace from Christianity. We found the story pairings in your curriculum very helpful!” Rev. Caroline Hamilton-Arnold, Transitional Associate Minister, Newtown Congregational Church

 “Vicki, thanks for sending us the Demons unit of your youth curriculum. We’ve had some good success with it and the kids like it a lot. We even did a whole Sunday morning using one of the lessons for the whole congregation and they LOVED it!” Candace Chellew-Hodge, Jubilee! Circle, Columbia, SC
