Teaching Kids About Managing Money

Did you know that children, ages 4 to 14, received an average of $454 in allowance over the course of last year?  This is $8.74 a week.  In addition, many received cash gifts for birthdays and holidays.

Here's another interesting stat.  A 2013 study by the University of Cambridge found that people form many of their financial habits by the age of 7. 

This means the church has a great opportunity to set children up for financial success by equipping them to manage their money with God's principles.  And even more importantly, churches can equip parents to teach their children about managing money.

A few years ago, our church was going through Financial Peace University.  I'm sure you're familiar with this great resource that equips people to get out of debt and manage their money wisely.  We wanted to also teach the children about managing money and equip their parents to do the same.

To accomplish this, we created a teaching series called Money Talks.  This 4-week series gives kids a foundation for a lifetime of managing money God's way.  In Money Talks, kids learn....
  • Week 1 - Money Talks About Owning
  • Week 2 - Money Talks About Tithing
  • Week 3 - Money Talks About Sharing
  • Week 4 - Money Talks About Planning
The series includes...
  • graphics for posters, social media, promotions
  • graphics for slides for Power Point, Pro Presenter, Media Shout, Keynote
  • 4 weeks of lesson videos
  • 5-minute video countdown
  • 4 weeks of lessons that can be used in large group format, small group format, traditional classroom format, mid-week format
