At Rooted, we are passionate about young people being able to articulate the gospel. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to share the gospel with your child every day, below you will find three “gospel catechisms:” one for younger children, one for teenagers, and a “gospel identity catechism” you can use with any age. You can use these in the car on the way to school, at the breakfast table, or during your bedtime routine. No matter how you use them, we pray these questions will remind both you and your child about the good news of who Jesus is and what he has done for us.
