All children love a good story. Now, get them excited about the GREATEST story ever told!

These lessons will help you walk children through the BIG Story of the Bible and see the overarching theme of God in relationship with His people. Through familiar and sometimes less-familiar stories, children will see Jesus as the Promised One who can to save His people from sin and death.

Here in part 1; THE OLD TESTAMENT, we’ll look at the overarching story of the Bible, and walk through the Old Testament where God spoke to His people through prophets and priests and Kings, and sometimes directly. This unit ends at the beginning of the New Testament, where we see things being put in place for God to speak again, and where we get a hint of how God was coming into the world.

Part 2: THE NEW TESTAMENT will be released in December 2022.

Lessons are designed to be taught in a 1-hour setting for children ages 5-11 (K-5th grade). Each lesson includes an introductory activity, worship through singing (with links to suggested songs), multiple ideas for telling the Bible story, an opportunity to see where this story fits into the storyline of the Bible, suggested worship songs with links, application activities, weekly memory verses with activities, worksheet pages to use as review or send home, and journal pages to go along with the lesson. These journal pages can be printed as needed and completed in class and sent home, or you can have the books printed and bound and at the end of the year, kids will be able to take home the full story of the Bible.

NOTE: all scripture quoted in the lesson word file is ESV. KJV & NIV versions of the teaching materials and student journals are available for churches who would prefer those translation.

For the “Story Time” portion of each lesson, options are given to (1) read the story from Scripture, (2) tell the story in your own words, being sure to hit listed key points or (3) read from a favorite story Bible (page numbers are listed for several popular and gospel focused children’s story Bibles).
