If you and I were to have a conversation about GO!, it might sound something like this: YOU: So tell me about this GO! curriculum thingy. ME: Oh my gosh, it's the best! Once you start using it, you'll never stop. YOU: Well, of course you'd say that. You created it! ME: Hmmm...I see your point. I've been in your shoes before, so I get it! You would expect me to say great things about a curriculum that is so close to my heart. That's why I love hearing the bazillions (rough estimate) of success stories from passionate GO! users. Their stories are raw. They're real. They're unbiased. I recently heard one of those stories from Nicole. She's the Children's Director at a church called Warehouse 242 in Charlotte, NC. She heard about GO! at a local conference. When the host church began talking about the impact that GO! had on their KidMin, Nicole thought, "Oh great, another mega church giving me curriculum solutions that don't work for us little guys." But then the host church performed a shortened version of a GO! lesson and Nicole was blown away. She thought, "Wow! That was as simple and easy to execute as it was fun and engaging." Nicole was ready for a change. She had grown tired of ripping her current curriculum apart and having to rewrite it, so she made the switch to GO! How does she like it? In her words:
"GO! has been a game changer for us!" She said that there's a new energy to the room. The kids are chomping at the bit to get started every Sunday. They can't wait to see what they're going to learn and how they're going to learn it. They love the interactive themes! One mom told Nicole that they had been out of town the past weekend and her kids were so sad to miss church. "That never happened before," Nicole said. Moreover, Nicole loves the Biblical depth of GO! Her kids are learning more than ever and their lives are being changed. Better yet, she doesn't have to rewrite the lessons to get that result. "I would expect with any curriculum to have to change things from time to time," Nicole said. "But not with GO! I've never once had to pull a lesson apart to rewrite it. It's that good!" Time isn't the only thing she's saving. Nicole loves how GO! saves on supply costs by using things that are either on-hand for free or easy and inexpensive to buy at the store. Nicole said that she's been using the savings for outreach in their community. "I finally found my curriculum," Nicole told me. "We'll be using GO! forever!"
So, are you as happy with your curriculum as Nicole is with hers? If not, give GO! a try. We would love for you to be our next success story!
