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 4,students will start by spending 6 weeks pondering Jesus’ work on the cross. Kids will walk with Jesus from the garden, through His trials, to the cross and the empty tomb all to come to the point of understanding that Jesus is the only way. These first 6 lessons are perfect for the Easter season, but also easily taught any time of the year. After focusing on Jesus and the cross, the unit will end with 4 lessons on the work of the Holy Spirit, seeing that the Holy Spirit was a work in the Old Testament, with Jesus and His disciples and at work in the lives of all of Jesus’ followers today.
