Because children need help understanding that the Bible is one story with Jesus as the hero, the Gospel Story Curriculum focuses on Christ as it teaches first- through third-grade children key stories from Matthew to Revelation that highlight God's plan of redemption. This unique 1.5-year long curriculum series grows with children by exploring the same Bible stories at three different learning levels, presenting the material in a fresh way each time to help children grow in their understanding of the Bible. When the full curriculum series is used, children learn a slightly longer version of the passage at each age level. Recommended companion materials include: The Gospel Story Bible, Old Story New, Sword Bible Memory Cards, and the companion coloring book, each of which is shown at the bottom of this page.
Designed for first to third-grade children, the lower elementary curriculum takes a more detailed look at the life of Christ, the early church and how each story connects to the gospel. Through age-appropriate object lessons, activities, and coloring sheets teachers can help young elementary school children to understand the gospel presented in the New Testament.
