Now available for Android & iPhone: The Growing in Faith Together App

Children Desiring God Blog  //  Now Available for Android & iPhone: The Growing in Faith Together AppAs Sunday School is starting this fall, Children Desiring God is excited to offer a new resource to help parents and churches partner together and extend learned beyond the classroom. Our new Growing in Faith Together App is now available for both iPhone and Android!

Growing in Faith Together: Parent and Child Resource Pages (GIFT Pages) have been created to help parents interact with their children about the spiritual truths taught in Sunday school. (In our original curriculum, these have been known as Parent Pages or Take-Home Pages.) These GIFT Pages, which correlate with our elementary curriculum, provide parents a summary of what children are taught in class, discussions questions to help lead children to a heart response and an activity suggestion to reinforce the lesson themes or memory verse.

The GIFT App is a great tool for weekly discussions at home or on the go and keeping your children caught up if they are sick or traveling and miss Sunday School. GIFT Pages can also be used as a discipleship or devotional tool for parents even if their children are not currently studying a Children Desiring God curriculum.

    So excited that this resource is available! We would love to get this resource into the hands of our church family. Question: Does each church pay 1.99 per curriculum for families to have access or is this a fee charged per family? If so, would love to have the option to order a package as a church so we could give out the info to each family for free access.

    Thanks for such a wonderful Gospel saturated curriculum 🙂

      Hi Stephanie,
      The app is free to download but the $1.99 per curriculum charge is for each family/app that is downloaded. Because these are in-app purchases, iTunes and Google Play do not have a way for you as a church to purchase the GIFT App curricula for families. One option would be to give each family a gift card for iTunes or Google Play to cover the cost. I’m sorry we do not have a better solution at this time but hope the new app will still be a blessing to the families at your church.
