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 fourth- through sixth-grade children key stories from Genesis to Malachi that highlight God's plan of redemption. This unique 1.5-year curriculum 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. Recommended companion materials include: The Gospel Story Bible, Long Story Short, Sword Bible Memory Cards, and the companion coloring book, each of which is shown at the bottom of this page.
The developing minds of fourth- to sixth-grade children are challenged to search the Bible's text through engaging activities in the upper elementary curriculum. Using the same story content as the lower elementary curriculum, the upper elementary curriculum utilizes different activities and objects lesson suitable for nine- to twelve-year old children. Reviewing the now-familiar Bible stories, older children will gain a deeper understanding of redemption in Christ as they begin to study Scripture for themselves.
