Bible Based Church School Studies

Sunday School is the most familiar teaching ministry and useful model for teachers. For the past two or three decades teachers either had to develop lessons or had to use material prepared by those who view the Scriptures from varying outlooks. Thus the need for a system of learning to help people of all ages reach their peak God given potential as followers of Christ.

Long ago Solomon wrote: “A wise teacher’s words spur students to action and emphasize important truths.  The collected sayings of the wise are like guidance from a shepherd.”  Ecclesiastes 12:11

During the past three or four decades Sunday School material has been written primarily for teachers with limited Bible knowledge and experience in the Word of God.  In an effort to satisfy the mandate to teach, materials are designed toward imparting values, morality, and ways to change behaviors of students of all ages. Experience has taught that behaviors may be somewhat altered with minimum change, and if there is to be real change in one's life there must be a change in how we approach the whole of Christian education teaching. The Church School Bible Based Curriculum is based on the fact that Jesus main occupation was that of "teacher." He spent most of his time on earth teaching people about the Kingdom of God and how to live their daily lives in God's presence. The result was many people flocked to hear him because the message was irresistible.  Thus, the church School Studies is written not for changed behaviors but to transform lives.
