: Could I get a copy of the Sunday School curriculum that you use in your Sunday Schools?
[On re-reading your message, you don't specify children, which is the way I answer it below. Sorry. The same goes, however, for other age groups as well. You can get to the info for other age groups from my age-group resources link page,
First, I would highly recommend the children's curriculum materials published by the Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. That's what we use at Jersey. The materials are Bible-based and evangelistic, and are designed with special attention to the developmental needs and abilities of children at each age group. In the past few years, the SSB has made a special effort to make the materials more teacher-friendly, while not compromising their emphasis on meeting children's needs.
There are two lines of curriculum, designed for churches with different enrollments and needs. My suggestion is that you visit the web site
www.bssb.com/kidtrek/ldrresou.htm and check out the overview of the materials available. (Be sure to visit the links in the sidebar.) If you want some sample copies, call the Sunday School Board at the phone number on their web site and request them.
For each age group, there is a teacher's magazine, a pupil's resouce (weekly take-home sheets with review and background for next week's lesson), and a resource kit with terrific visuals, games, and other items to help the teacher's preparation.
I do appreciate your interest in investing the effort to check out good curriculum materials. The effort to provide a top-notch Sunday School experience for children (in fact, for any age group) will pay spiritual dividends for years to come--in fact, for all eternity! God bless you.
