Rio, a downloadable curriculum for Grades 1 - 6, is a dynamic way to engage kids and their parents in your ministry, using both printed materials and online resources. In the popular classroom model, Rio strives to engage relationships at all levels—leader to child, child to child, child to parent, parent to leader—all within the context of a relationship with God. The two-year Scope and Sequence keeps the focus on God and His grand story and character instead of focusing on the individual Bible stories or characters. Rio incorporates spiritual disciplines and enables kids to access the Bible on their own, helping them learn how to study and relate to God’s Word beyond the classroom. Rio stays current through the Rio Essentials online resources that enhance the Rio experience. 

RIO is Relational.          RIO is Intentional.          RIO is Overflow.
