If you’re looking for free Sunday school lessons for kids, you’ve come to the right place!
Most of my free lessons are written as part of a series. You will find those lessons on my Curriculum page. I write them around a theme, adding in all the other elements (such as review, Bible memory work, and activities) to fill out a class period.
However, on this page you will find children's or youth Bible lessons on a variety of topics. You might want to use one of these Sunday school lessons to teach on a specific topic one week or as a supplement to your current curriculum.
I have only a few stand-alone lessons ready at this point but will add to this list of lessons as I continue to add to the website.
The following lessons are adapted from my We Are... Curriculum. I reworked them, aiming them more toward middle-school and high-school students:
These adapted lessons are also being used by Project 7 Bible Clubs. Check out their website for information and resources to help students start Bible clubs in their middle and high schools.
You might want to write your own Sunday school lessons or curriculum, based on the needs of your particular group of students. You know them best! You will want to, of course, pray for God’s direction on what He wants your students to learn at this particular time. In addition, you might want to ask them some of the following questions to assess their Bible knowledge (varying the questions based on the age of your students):
We can all learn more about the Bible! By memorizing verses, passages, stories, and principles from the Bible, we have the “sword” of God’s Word with us at all times, even when we don’t have our actual Bible in our hands. We need the Sword with us because we never know when the devil, our enemy, will attack. Equip yourself and your students.
When writing your Sunday school lessons you might also want to ask your students what they are interested in learning and what kind of questions they have about the Bible and Christian living.
After assessing your students' Bible knowledge and interest, you can set some goals for what you want to teach them and begin to search for children's Bible lessons or curriculum on those topics, or write your own.
When writing Sunday school lessons, try using lots of questions, giving your students a chance to share what they know and you a chance to help them find the answers in the Bible. Make sure your lessons require your students to actually use their Bibles. In this way, they will become more familiar with their Bibles and also see the value of bringing their Bibles with them to class.
Remember: You can find many lessons in several complete curricula available via my Curriculum page.
