Ethos Kids At Home
Ethos Kids exists to help families with children to Love God, Love People, and Awaken a Movement. We hope to come alongside you as caregivers to nurture, support, and love your children both at church and in your home. We have developed and curated the following resources and suggestions to help you create an environment for your child that fosters spiritual formation. These resources can be used with your house church in a living room, friends in a park, or your family at home. The resources are created with flexibility in mind and can be adapted to meet nearly any setting.
We hope these resources will help spark your creativity to create space for kids to encounter God in meaningful ways. If you have any questions or would like to recommend something that is working for your family, email us at .

One way to create opportunities for spiritual growth for kids is by creating a "Sunday School class" at home. We have created an At home Kids Class Guide that follows a similar pattern as our traditional Sunday classes at church. This guide is helpful to us in small group or house church settings. If done in a group, we encourage you to set up a rotating schedule where two adults sign up to teach the kids class each time. By spreading out the responsibility it allows children to get to know other adults in their group and doesn't place the burden on only one person. This guide uses a very simple curriculum we have developed based on scripture memorization. Click here to access our At Home Kids Class Guide.
A great way to engage with your kids in your home is by intentionally creating an intergenerational experience so children and adults alike are provided opportunities to engage with one another and experience spiritual formation. This method works great for house churches with children! We have developed a guide for you to follow that we hope will encourage participation for the kids in your group.

We highly recommend memorizing scripture together as a family. Memorizing and reciting scripture is something that Christian communities have done for centuries. The Bible encourages us to store God’s words in our hearts and to pass them down to our children (Deut. 11:18-19). Scripture also tells us that David stored up God’s words in his heart (Psalm 119:11). In the New Testament, Jesus demonstrated his memorization of scripture when he frequently quoted from the Old Testament in his teachings. We believe memorizing scripture honors God’s instructions to us in scripture and invites us to follow in Jesus’ footsteps. You can memorize scripture with your family by starting small and working through our ABCs of Scripture. Click here to access our ABCs of Scripture curriculum.
We want to disciple our children to have healthy rhythms in their daily life. This Rule of Life worksheet is designed to invite kids to think intentionally about how they want to spend time in scripture, practice gratitude, create, move, and connect with others. This worksheet is designed to be filled out each week and gives kids the flexibility to try new things week to week. Click here to download the Ethos Kids Rule of Life sheet.
