After your initial shock at seeing this GIGANTIC list, I hope you’ll find some valuable information that will help guide you in choosing the right product that will perfectly fit your needs.

Find the right Sunday School Curriculum for your needs!

Here at Better Bible Teachers, I produce Sunday School curriculum, but that doesn’t mean I think my stuff is perfect for everyone. I want what is best for YOU and the curriculum that suits YOUR needs.

A few notes on what you’ll see below:

  • The “sample” links will take you to the place where you can get a sample of the curriculum materials
  • The price for each program is listed, and it is denoted how often you need to purchase materials
  • The scope / teaching cycle is listed, as curriculums often have you start over again after a certain number of months / years.
  • The level of media included is listed. For those of you in smaller churches, this might aid your decision in choosing a curriculum that you can utilize with limited technical resources.
  • The Bible version used is also listed.

Great Commission Publications

We all know the importance of the early years in a child’s growth and development. There are many skills, habits, and words that we teach and train our children within their first five years of life—more than we would want to count. Crucial to that teaching and training is our Christian faith and heritage.

We are to teach our children the great and powerful works of our God. We are to teach them God’s Word, His law, and His gospel as part of His covenant people. We are to teach them the

“things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done … that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments (Psalm 78:3–4,6–7, ESV).

Through their Show Me Jesus and Kids’ Quest curriculum, Great Commission Publications provides resources for the church and the family to assist in this important task for children from age 2 through the elementary years.

Superchurch

Kids are created with a trusting nature, but when they become teenagers they will begin to question what they believe. If they have been raised in the church they will begin to question what they have been taught by the church. We already know what their questions will be because this has happening for twenty centuries.

Here are The FIVE Big Questions every kid will ask when they transition into adolescence.

  • Does God exist?
  • Is the Bible the Word of God?
  • Did God create mankind or did we evolve from monkeys?
  • Is Jesus the Son of God?
  • Did God really raise Jesus from the dead?

We know how the enemy will attack. If we are wise we will prepare our kids for the onslaught of doubt that we know is coming. This is why Super Church created The Core.
