Tony Kummer, the visionary founder of The Sunday School Store, reflected on the inception of this pioneering curriculum. "In an era where social media, online gaming, and other digital platforms dramatically influence how friendships are formed and sustained among children, there exists a critical demand for guidance anchored in Christian principles.

Friend Request: 4-Week Children’s Ministry Curriculum

"Friend Request" dedicates each of its four weeks to exploring different essential aspects of friendship through a Christian perspective. The journey begins with the significance of selecting positive friends, drawing from biblical narratives to show how making wise choices can lead to enriching companionships. The curriculum then advances to instilling confidence in children about their identity and their unique bond with Jesus, fostering authenticity and self-assurance in their friendships. It further delves into recognizing Jesus as the perfect friend, shedding light on His teachings about love, acceptance, and forgiveness. In its final week, the curriculum underlines the role of kindness in friendships, urging children to practice thoughtfulness and supportiveness, regardless of whether it's online or face-to-face.

Kummer emphasized the importance and timeliness of this curriculum by stating, "With digital interactions increasingly influencing social dynamics, 'Friend Request' provides a crucial and timely perspective on friendship that resonates with Christian values. By weaving the teachings of Jesus with practical guidance suited for the digital age, we're guiding children towards forming not just fulfilling, but also God-honoring friendships."
