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 1, we look at the foundational big truths of the Christian faith, who God is and how He introduces Himself to us through His Word. By taking the time to really get to know the God of the Bible, children will begin to see who they are in light of God’s perfection. This will lay a great foundation for the truths in the rest of the series.
