Sunday School Adventures

“Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid;
do not be discouraged,
for the LORD your God
will be with you
wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 (NIV)

Wherever we go: whether or not we can gather for Sunday school yet, whether kids have virtual classes or in-person school, whether the virus is peaking or waning, whether there are protests or riots in our cities, God is with us. He is with us through the good and with us through the bad.

Studying God’s Word helps us understand there is a bigger purpose. It helps us focus on the eternal, instead of the temporal. It builds our faith in God’s plan and provision.

Adventures on Route 66

Take your students on a fast-paced, fun trip through the 66 books of the Bible! Help them envision the “big picture” of the Bible with this 35-lesson curriculum that uses the Read with Me Bible as its textbook. I am excited to be updating this curriculum as I teach it to my students this year. Stop by and see the progress.

Video Lessons

When I couldn’t have in-person classes with my students, I video-recorded some of my lessons. Is this something you could do? It certainly took me out of my comfort zone to video myself teaching with no one there! It helped to picture a specific student in my mind and focus on teaching him/her. You can subscribe to the Creative Sunday School Ideas YouTube channel, and you will know when I add more videos.

Reading Aloud

I chose the Read with Me Bible as the basic text for Adventures on Route 66 because it uses the New International Reader’s Version (NIrV), which is a Bible translation, rather than a paraphrasing or retelling (as is the case with many children’s Bible storybooks). Also, it has colorful, engaging illustrations. I love reading aloud to kids! Here are some tips and ideas for reading aloud:

Coming Soon!

You may have noticed in the video: new timeline figures with artwork by my daughter Emily! These will be available soon. I can’t wait to share them with you!

May God bless you as you share His Word with children. May He be with you and make you strong and courageous.

Here’s something I use every week in my class: a Books of the Bible posterboard. Click below for links to all the printables you need to create a board for your class, as well as printable books of the Bible cards. The page also contains ideas for learning the books of the Bible through games and songs.
