This exciting new curriculum will help build a foundation of Biblical truths in the hearts of children. “Big Truths for Young Hearts” is a 52-week lesson series based on the book ‘Big Truths for Young Hearts’ by Bruce Ware. In this book, Dr. Ware unpacks the riches of God’s word in a systematic way designed to help kids to grasp of the big picture of who God is and all He desires us to know through His Word.

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.

    Unit 5 completes the 52-week study of the Big Truths of the Bible. In this unit, students will focus on the doctrines of salvation (soteriology) and the church (ecclesiology). As they look at salvation, they will see what the Bible says about election, faith, belief, righteousness, justification, sanctification, and the truth that salvation is through Jesus alone. In the second part of the unit, students will uncover Biblical teaching on the church; what a church is, what a church does, symbols of the church and how the church grows through evangelism. This unit is an excellent cap to the study we’ve been working through all year as the truths students have already learned about God, man, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are come together to make sense of salvation and the church.
