Unit #2 Only with 10 powerful Bible lessons
Complete 5 Units with 52 powerful lessons: Unit #1 and Unit #2 will download immediately and lock in our pre-order price on the remaining units. We will send the other units as they become available. Unit 3- Dec. Unit 4- Jan 2022. Unit 5- March 2022.
This year-long curriculum series takes the concepts, or the BIG TRUTHS, presented in the book and provides teachers, parents, and churches with all the resources they need to proclaim those truths to the children in their lives.
The curriculum units follow the chapters in Dr. Ware’s book. A list of the units in this series is found on page 6. The hope is that churches would teach straight through the materials, as in many ways the units do build on each other. But the units are also written in such a way that you could easily teach them as a stand-alone curriculum. A full scope and sequence of the materials is available to download from the Sunday School Store.
In Unit 2, we dive into the Trinity, looking at each of the 3 persons of the Godhead and their roles and the big picture of God being 3 in 1. Then we look at the person of Christ. This part of the series is perfect for the Christmas season and will help kids see Jesus as more than the baby in the manger this year.
