Each children’s church lesson was built around popular bible stories for kids.  I want the children to understand each Bible story and its practical teaching. Most of these children’s Bible lessons can be modified to teach in kids church or use as a  preschool lesson plans. I have written these bible study lessons for kids since I started in teaching kids church (aka junior church). Each lesson plan includes clear goals and targeted learning activities for Children’s Church. I try to include relevant activities, children’s church games, Bible crafts, children’s Bible stories, or other material that will help you teach. These were originally taught in my Baptist church, but they should work for any Christian church or  non denominational churches.
