42 lesson curriculum series for Sunday School on the character and attributes of God.

This amazing resource from Ministry To Children will set the foundation for how kids understand and relate to God. It’s more than just Sunday School lessons, it’s basic training in knowing God.

One of the most important tasks of anyone in charge of children’s ministry is that of deciding what 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.

With these three simple questions and guidelines in mind I started forming our children’s materials.
