HOW WE PLAY

Creativity and Play are ways in which we can plant the words and imagery of the Bible deep in the hearts of our children, not simply as memorization, but as truth to call upon when life reveals itself to be impossibly lived outside of Christ. By sharing God’s Story through play access to life in full color is given. 

Children and grow-ups will both want to play together and dig deep. Not only is the zine fun, it will also help children navigate the deep waters of life. Just like the Bible does not shy away from the gritty, neither does StoryMakers. The Bible is full of drama and real life, our team has created a format to engage children in it all.

ENGAGING THE IMAGINATION

StoryMakers see the imagination as the entry way into God's redemptive narrative. Our imaginations are a spiritual gift to cultivate. As children learn how their own stories are grafted into the story (The Bible), they see the story’s author in his fullness. Using our interactive zines, shadow puppets, and Sparks, kids are able to tap into the story through their imaginations, not with perfect views, but as image bearers playing the parts. Adventure One is all about the start of it all. Our 12-week guide will take you through Genesis 1-3 in a fun and interactive way. Our approach is imagination
