GROW: Children’s Bible Class Curriculum
Many have commented, “As the Sunday School goes, so goes the church.” Teaching our children about God and the Bible is not only crucial to their spiritual maturity, but also a divine mandate from the Lord. Our kids deserve engaging, challenging, biblically-sound lessons that will help them grow to be like Jesus. But the cost of many children’s curriculum programs can reach thousands of dollars each quarter…
Designed by Ashley Hudson for the Madill, OK church of Christ, GROW children’s Bible class curriculum will be available soon through Start2Finish. GROW offers curriculum for children age 2 through 6th grade. It was designed with small to medium-sized churches in mind.
With the GROW curriculum, you get 2 years of material for Sunday and Wednesday classes (208 lessons total) for each age group: ages 2-3, ages 4-5, 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade, and 5th-6th grade.
Also included is a suggested class schedule, supply list, coloring sheets, and age-appropriate activities/crafts to complement each lesson. All the material for GROW is available digitally as PDFs—simply print off as many copies as you need for each class. All Bible classes and congregations are not the same, and we understand that. GROW allows teachers to customize crafts and activities that will best suit their specific classroom while maintaining simple, easy-to-teach lessons that are appropriate for each age group.
The first year of GROW will take your through the New Testament, and the second year will take you through the Old Testament. GROW takes unity in the church to the classrooms and implements combined classes for all age groups a few times per year, bridging the generational gap most congregations struggle with. The GROW curriculum is also designed as a block class system, allowing the first quarter of each year to be open to certain subjects that need to be studied. For example, the first year of your New Testament quarter will be over how we got the Bible. The first year of your Old Testament quarter will be over creation. In the future, you will be able to purchase additional block quarters for each year that will cover subjects such as the family unit, archeology and the Bible, and a special boys/girls unit on manly/feminine Christian characteristics—just to name a few.
When you purchase GROW, you will receive all the material for Year 1 of all 5 age groups. The curriculum will be available to you as downloadable PDFs. As an alternative, we can send you a USB drive with all the material for a very small fee. Your purchase will entitle you to unlimited reproduction rights within your congregation. A Pinterest board will also be available with craft and project ideas.
