David C. Cook publishes a curriculum called:


This publisher is known for producing some wonderful curricular material. Lots and lots. Rio has been around for a few years and seems to be designed primarily for Sunday school environments, but could definitely be used for other environments as well.


“Rio is a new family-friendly digital curriculum that helps churches and families foster a deeper relationship with God and a life of faith that is rich and full. Kids learn how to experience God, discern His voice, and know the Spirit’s powerful work in their lives.”


“Rio believes that our faith is a relational one, and that the best way to grow people in the faith is to help them deepen their relationship with God and others. We strive to engage relationships at all levels within your children’s ministry—leader to child, child to child, child to parent, parent to leader—all within the context of a relationship with God.

“This focus on knowing God will produce in children a desire to obey God—not obedience through their own power, but obedience through the power provided by the Holy Spirit. By keeping the focus on God and responding to Him, Rio strives to produce a transformational faith that will reproduce itself for generations to come.”
