    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks so much!!

  3. Susan Best says

    This is an excelleent series – such a blessing to our children’s ministry as I teach a combined ages class Sat nights. Well thought through and desigend, these lessons were easy to prepare and use. Thank you!

  4. Christy says

    These lessons have made the teachings in the Book of Acts a remarkable journey for my Sunday School class! Thank you!

  5. Kim says

    I am so excited to have found your site. I was stuck in a rut and now cant wait untill sunday to teach. Im going to start with your lessons on holy spirit. You have made explaining a confusing topic so easy! Many many thanks God bless!

  6. Lois Lee says

    Tony, Thank you so much for making these lessons available for free. I am involved with a small congregation composed of refugees from an Asian nation. We do not have resources available to purchase curriculum materials from the big Sunday School Publishers so I was so thankful to find this web site. I am currently using the Book of Acts series with our 7-12 year olds. (The children are learning to speack English in school even though many of the parents speak very little English yet.)Also, thank you to Kelly for writing this series on ACTS.
    I am including the following info in hopes that it will be of help to some one else. I read in somebody’s comments that they were having difficulty finding activity or coloring sheets to go with these lessons. I, too, was having difficulty at first until I ran across a web site called Childrens Worship Bulletins. I investigated it and found it has ‘bulletins’ for children with has various kinds of activities that vary from week to week. There are mazes, code busters, puzzles, coloring, hidden pictures etc. and are available in two formats – one for ages 3-6 and one for ages 7-12. It is not free, but the cost is reasonable (around $20.00 per quarter)and it has bulletins from Genesis through Revelation. One only pays for a quarter at a time. So I decided to try it for a quarter and see how I liked it. I have been able to find something to go with nearly every lesson from Acts so far, so feel I’ve already gotten my $20.00 worth.
    Anyway, I hope this info will help someone.
    Again, Thank you Tony and Kelly for these lessons.
    Lois Lee

  7. Karen Gebert says

    I have a SS class for grades 3-6. We are going through book of Acts with your study. Each week the children draw cartoon illustrations of the lesson which we post on huge bulletin boards in our room. Before Christmas we had an Open House for the adults, where the children discussed their illustrations and reviewed the first 14 chapters of Acts. The kids were proud of their work and the adults were very responsive! Now we start on the last 14 chapters and plan to do the same thing. I will make color copies of their illustrations to present as gifts at end of class.

  8. Candace says

    We are using this curriculum to teach our children in our home Shepherding Group. The adults and kids will be studying the same topics, just in separate groups. Thank you for the free use!

    Thank you so very much for providing these wonderful lessons for free! I teach Sunday school for 3rd-5th graders and although I usually have material to use, I didn’t have anything for the book of Acts.

    The Book of Acts” Sunday School Lesson Series

    I am unable to get lesson 23. Why?

  21. Joyce says

    Thank you very much for providing FREE lessons. My daughter is volunteering to teach reading and writing in GHANA and was asked to also teach Sunday School. She called me frantically worried because she needed some type of guide as this is not what she went prepared to do! I have emailed her your site and hope it helps her! It is the best that I have found. Thanks once again and God Bless!

  22. Julie R says

    Thank you so much for this series! I am using it with my 11-15 y/o girls Sunday school class and they are absolutely loving it! Planning on adapting it to use with the Youth Group as soon as we are finished with our current lessons. Will be letting them add a little more ‘meat’ with some independent research and discussion! We are a very small church with NO budget for curriculum. This site has been such a blessing!
