Learning Together: Created to Care
God created us to care for the world, others, and ourselves!
Engage your participants in the joy of God’s creation and our call to take care of it in this fun, easy-to-use curriculum, perfect for classrooms, VBS, and family events. The world is a gift and so is our God-given responsibility to care for the air, water, earth, living things, our neighbors, and ourselves.
The Learning Together series is designed for flexibility with individual units on specific topics or themes. The five-lesson units can be used for intergenerational or elementary-age participants in traditional or rotation-model classes. Some customers have enjoyed using Learning Together lessons with their youth/confirmation. They can even be used in a Vacation Bible School!
Each unit includes a Unit Overview, Grouping Activity, Service Projects, Music Suggestions, Unit-long Project, VBS Suggestions, and Unit Supply List.
Each lesson includes a Lesson Overview, Background for Leaders, Large-group Opening Activity, Five Activity Stations (Storytelling, Craft, Science, Games, and Snack), Closing Prayer, and For the Home take-home guide.
- Sample: Since Learning Together units are short, we do not provide a full sample lesson for each unit as we do with the rest of our products. Instead, the sample you can download below gives you a taste of what you can expect from Learning Together lessons with the full first lesson of our unit “The I AM Statements of Jesus.” You should also know that you can get that “I AM Statements” unit for FREE when you sign up for our quarterly e-newsletter. You can also contact us if you have any further questions.
- Digital Product: All Spirit & Truth Publishing products, including Learning Together, are digital products that can be downloaded to your computer or other devices. No physical items are sold.

[Learning Together] is VERY user-friendly. It has such wonderful options for presenting and reinforcing the weekly topic. The kids are remembering the lessons from week to week to week, and hopefully for their lifetime.

I am a curriculum snob. For me, curriculum is a tool, something I use to help me learn what the group I’m working with already knows and how to help them use that to understand the new concept we’re working with. Good curriculum is flexible for settings and people. Good curriculum is inclusive of all learning styles. Good curriculum provides pathways to develop new understanding from an existing concept. Good curriculum engages rather than dictates. I don’t often find curriculum that has all of these components, nor ones that also make sure that the learner’s curiosity is piqued and fed. [Learning Together] from Spirit and Truth Publishing is one of those curriculums that ticks off all of these requirements and provides space for both the learner and leader to engage and grow.
