First Look is designed lovingly and expertly for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. The team behind First Look is passionate about making sure that preschoolers know THREE truths before they graduate into your elementary ministry:
GOD MADE ME
GOD LOVES ME
JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER
252 Basics is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Everything we teach in 252 Basics is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.
I NEED TO MAKE THE WISE CHOICE.
I CAN TRUST GOD NO MATTER WHAT.
I SHOULD TREAT OTHERS THE WAY I WANT TO BE TREATED.
XP3 Middle School exists to help middle schoolers experience three things: wonder for who God is, discovery of who He created them to be, and passion for loving others. Everything we offer is designed to help middle schoolers begin to take ownership of their faith through these three basic truths:
I WILL LOVE GOD BECAUSE HE WILL NEVER STOP LOVING ME.
I WILL FOLLOW JESUS BECAUSE HE KNOWS ME BETTER THAN I KNOW MYSELF.
I WILL LIVE OUT GOD’S STORY SO OTHERS CAN KNOW WHO JESUS IS.
XP3 High School is all about growing your influence with students, parents and leaders.
We understand there a lot of things competing for your attention these days. You have goals. Demands. Expectations. Aspirations. And we know that your time is limited so doing everything that needs to be done seems virtually impossible. Until now. XP3 High School exists so your influence in your ministry and with your students can last longer and go deeper than you may have ever thought possible.
“I love the curriculum ReThink creates. It’s beautifully designed, deeply researched and so much fun. As a writer I appreciate the work that goes into it. As a dad with two young daughters who use this curriculum each week, I appreciate the heart that goes into it. I’m a fan, but more than that, the entire Acuff family is a fan!”
New York Times Bestselling author of Do Over, Start and Stuff Christians Like
“252 Basics has been an integral part of the strategy at National Community Church and our campuses to reach families in our community. The messaging behind the lessons is a natural draw for unchurched families to walk through our doors because every parent wants to see their kids learn about these principles. And we get the opportunity to show kids, moms and dads - from traditional to very non-traditional families that they are all made in the image of God and loved deeply by Him.”

“As a leader, I’m looking for tools that unite the power of Scripture with the pain and potential of youth culture. As a researcher, I’m eager for resources that get kids, families, and adult mentors on the same page. As a parent, I long for a curriculum that helps my kids know God’s abundant love and grace. XP3 offers all this. And much, much more.”

“I highly recommend First Look & 252 Basics!
Not only do I use them at my church and have seen the impact first hand in the lives of the kids
and families I pastor but I’ve seen their impact on my family.
When I ask my grandson what he learned at church, He tells me! Not only does he know what the
lesson was about he can tell me about the Bible story.
I recommend every church I consult with to use First Look & 252 Basics because it not only
works with kids it works with parents.”
