What if you had a roadmap for the next year of ministry? You could . . . 

  • Plan further in advance 
  • Plan what you teach with a strategy in mind
  • Stop wondering what you’ll teach next week

With First Look and 252 Kids curriculum, you get detailed insight on this coming year of ministry, August to July. We plan our year with the rhythms of a family’s life from the start of school through the fun of summer! 

First Look and 252 Kids work a bit differently. First Look works on a 2-year Scope and Cycle, and 252 Kids switches things up every three years. But both offer the same great information in Focused Yearly Scopes to help you plan for the year ahead.
