What follows is a summary describing the curriculum to be used,

which has been developed by the United Church of Canada:

 

Climb aboard as children sail the sometimes smooth, sometimes stormy seas of faith.  They will learn that becoming a disciple of Jesus and sharing the Good News in the world is a challenge that requires commitment and courage and often leads to change.

 

Five half-day sessions

 

Children begin each session in harbour with other adventurers in their sailboat where they are immediately engaged in an activity that leads into the day's theme:

 

1. Changing to Become a Friend of Jesus--Saul discovers the story of Jesus and becomes his friend.

 

2. Friends of Jesus Help Each Other to be Safe--Paul and his friends escape in a basket lowered over a wall.

 

3. Friends of Jesus Share Messages of Love and Hope for a Better World--Barnabas and Paul journey across the sea and back to tell of Jesus showing God's love.

 

4. Friends of Jesus Share Special Meals Together--Stories of Lydia and Paul's shipwreck.

 

5. Friends of Jesus Celebrate Good News--A review of all the stories of Paul and the new stories of Jesus' followers created throughout the week.

 

The session ends with all of the adventurers gathered beneath the lighthouse around a campfire for a time of closing songs and prayers.
