Ever tried writing for a translator?
On an old computer I started a file called ‘Jesus without language’ trying to do just that… soon this site was born.
God takes our weaknesses and makes them his strengths.

Lesson Sets

Who is it for?

The material is suitable for a whole range of children’s groups, it’s designed to be tailored to fit your time frame and children’s ability.

How do I turn this into a teaching session?

Each session has many sections, there is no set order and you can skip sections you don’t feel you need. Start by reading the bible passage and the hero card, then select what part of the lesson you would feel comfortable teaching and your children would find helpful to learn from.

Each session is designed to highlight a hero we find in the bible, each hero is assigned a gift, something that develops their character and helps them learn more about God. At the end of each lesson there is a hero card for the children to take home, this card sums up the key points about each character and can be collected to form a set.
