Sunday School curricula come in all shapes and sizes. Do you always “print” your Bible lesson? Tale the poll and then leave a comment below and share your thoughts!

Printed versus Digital Curriculum?

I’m interested in how you prefer to teach your Sunday School and Kids’ church lessons.

My preference is to have a lesson notes and an open Bible. In some cases I teach directly from a PowerPoint presentation.

I’m curious to know if anyone is teaching from their iPad or iPhone. I could imagine that would work well, especially if you use PDF curriculum that fits nicely on the iPad screen. All our new Sunday School lessons and Children’s Sermons come with a PDF download option.

  1. When I took over as Childrens director, I spent the summer using sample curriculum to determine what fit our churches DNA Ultimately I chose the build a lesson Dig In app from group publishing as it has a cool, dedicated craft every lesson. I also like that there are no ‘skits’ and puppets. (old school) there is always a video and a cool object lesson. It keeps the kids moving’ The games are always good and you rarely need to go look for ‘weird’ supplies. I always print it

  2. First of all, the leaving of the comment is not made easy: it states at the top of the page, and you can click on it, but then it just passes you on to a form without an email address/opportunity to actually leave the comment. It’s not clear you are supposed to scroll down and click on the word ‘comment’.
    Personally, I use both lessons from the internet (though I often print those as I prefer reading and preparing from paper) as well as printed ones: as a youth leader I have access to the children’s materials the church subscribes to. However, for the teaching I use a mix though hardly ever write out completely the story/teaching. I’ve found that I forget to check up and for me it’s distracting. Just having the ‘3 points’ down is usually enough. That said I don’t teach catechism like classes to young adults – I might want to take more extensive notes with me in their case, to refer to when it comes to question time at the least.

  3. So sorry Ana – I just made an edit to make the comment form easier to find.
    I love the “3 points” plan, I’ve done something similar (even when preaching in church’s main worship services). The “talking points” help keep me on track and moving forward without losing too much time, but also the freedom to interact with the students and let the Holy Spirit do his work!

  4. I’ve tried to that some (but I’m getting to bi-focal age). It would probibly help if I upgraded to a bigger screen. Thanks for commenting.

  5. I sometimes use lessons that I find online and I also purchase lessons online and at the Bible book store. We have a very small country church and I don’t have many children and they come sporadically. I appreciate your lessons and sheets.

    Thank you,
