Our Sunday School curriculum, designed by Children Desiring God Ministries, challenges kids to truly know God and His Word. We believe that churches often set the bar for kids too low, underestimating what they are able to understand and learn. Here at FBCMB, we take very seriously our opportunity to partner with parents in introducing their children to the Jesus of the Bible. Below you’ll find the studies children complete as they move through our Sunday School program.
The ABCs of God
Right thinking about God is essential for the life of faith. Using the alphabet as a framework for teaching the attributes of God, this study explores the delight that God has in Himself as the source, means, and purpose of all things. Each lesson asks and answers three key questions, “Who is God?” “What is He like?” and “How should I act toward Him?” as it presents a theology of God for children.
Faithful to All His Promises
God’s promises are gifts to the believer. The challenge of the Christian life is not to simply know the promises of God, but to place unshakable confidence in them. This study teaches children that God’s character is trustworthy; therefore, His promises are true and reliable.
In the Beginning… Jesus
A progressive story that tells God’s redemptive plan, which comes to complete fulfillment in the Person and work of Jesus Christ. Questions involving the beginning and why Jesus died are answered as the study goes to the beginning of the Bible narrative in Genesis and then moves through the Old Testament text as students search for clues that foreshadow the coming of Jesus and His redemptive work on the cross.
To Be Like Jesus
What is salvation? How does someone become a Christian? What does it mean to become like Jesus? This curriculum helps answer these important questions by explaining elements of the Gospel message, its purpose, and promise. A major portion of this study focuses on the doctrine of sanctification – the process by which a Christian becomes more and more conformed to the likeness of Jesus.
How Majestic is Your Name
The names of God are wonderful revelations of His majestic character. This study presents the Hebrew names of God in the Old Testament and the names of Christ and the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. Each lesson encourages children to see and rejoice in the goodness and greatness of God as they explore the meaning of His glorious names.
Abiding in Jesus
Abiding in Jesus challenges junior high students to know Jesus as the Savior and Satisfier of their souls. Inspired by John 15, youth are taught that abiding in Jesus leads to trusting Him in all life’s situations and bearing spiritual fruit in Him. A special emphasis in each lesson involves students experiencing Christian fellowship. The study features interactive teaching with small group discussion, application, prayer, and fellowship time. A student journal enables students to note important biblical truth, facilitates class fellowship time, and provides helpful at-home Bible study and life application.
