Elevate Curriculum

Curriculum / The Basics //

 

Elevate is a curriculum from Fellowship Church in Grapevine, TX.

Elevate is organized into 8-week packs. There are virtual “areas” that go along with their scope and sequence. For example: In Elevate year 1, there are 7 “places” (or names of their curriculum) up in the mountains.

  • elevate-year1On the Trail
  • Adventures in Science
  • Winter Extreme
  • Heroes of Mega City
  • Treasure Quest
  • Berry Blast Theme Park
  • Shipwrecked

It’s like one giant theme park!

Elevate curriculum comes with lots of resources. It’s all on DVDs and CDs so you’ll have to print your own lesson plans (or email them to your leaders/teachers). You can either follow a script to act out the stories or press play and watch the skits and the stories acted out on the screen. There are games, projects, crafts, and small group activities included with each lesson. It’s a one-stop shop. There’s enough resources in one lesson to span almost 2 hours!

I’ve used Elevate in the past just for the theme, the skits, and the stories on the screen. Then I’ve done other things to supplement the curriculum instead of sticking to their script. There’s so many resources that one could easily craft their own structure or flow depending on the needs of your ministry.

Here are some more details from Elevate’s website:
