Easter Sunday School Lessons for 2023

"The Work that Jesus Has Done” is part of unit 4 of the “Big Truths for Young Hearts” year-long curriculum series. We have selected the key points of the Easter Story for this special 8-part Easter Sunday school lesson.

“Big Truths for Young Hearts” is a 52-week Bible lesson series for kids 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 the big picture of who God is and all He desires us to know through His Word.

This year-long children's ministry 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 and is perfect for Sunday School or Children's Church Ministry.
