This 12-week children’s ministry curriculum is based on the Ten Commandments for Kids. Each study includes coloring pages, games, and craft ideas for each lesson. Kids will discover the truth of God’s law, their trouble to obey, and the free salvation Jesus offers on account of the cross.
One of the most important tasks of anyone in charge of children’s ministry is that of deciding what truth to teach the children under your care. In my years as a children’s ministry director it was one task that I took very seriously. There were so many things I wanted the children in our church to know, but as I listed them out, they all boiled down to the gospel: who is God?, who is man? and what did Jesus do? With these three simple questions and spiritual guidelines in mind I started forming our children’s materials.
God deserves praise! That’s why the book of book of Psalms is a wonderful study of spiritual worship. This 32 lesson children’s ministry curriculum will help kids understand and experience the character of God and respond with praise.
The Armor of God is a great passage of Scripture to teach to children. It is visual and has immediate, real world applications for them. The 9 lesson unit covers Ephesians 6 verse 10-20. It is entitled “How to Win Against Sin” because our real battle is against sin, and with Jesus, we can win.
Use this children’s ministry curriculum to teach the Lord’s Prayer for Kids from Matthew 6 verse 9-13. In many churches, kids will memorize and recite this passage as a foundation for spiritual habits of prayer. These lesson plans and printables will reinforce that process and help kids discover the meaning in each petition of Jesus’ model prayer.
Kids learn best through storytelling (just like the first disciples) – that’s why teaching the parables of Jesus is perfect for Sunday School and Junior Church. This 9 unit children’s ministry curriculum is 100% free to download an teach. Every verse of the Bible is important but the words of Jesus offer spiritual power for all disciples to obey.
About our Kids Ministry Curriculum
Our children’s ministry curriculum is a guide, but God empowers teachers to make the real difference. Our teaching materials are “broadly graded” that can be adapted to any grade level students. In most children’s ministry, the students are combined into one large group teaching session. All our lesson plans are flexible and allow the teacher to decide how “in-depth” to take the conversation. For example, young Kindergarten and First Grade students will need the teacher to read all the Bible passages. Second and third grade will have stronger reading skills and can benefit from simple worksheets. Older elementary students, grades four and five, will likely be ages 10-12. These preteens will enjoy deeper discussion and life applications. Each of these studies are flexible enough for any ministry.
