Help Elementary Kids Find Jesus in Every Bible Story

Grades 1 & 2 | Ages 5-7

Every story in the Bible points to Jesus—each elementary lesson does too.

Most people make a decision to follow Jesus during their elementary years. That’s why we believe one of the most important things we can do is help elementary kids see Jesus in every story of the Bible and learn to trust Him in every area of their lives. Each week, whether you are sharing a Bible story from the Old or New Testament, Gospel Light Elementary Sunday School will show you how the Bible leads us to Jesus. Nothing is more important than a child’s relationship with Jesus!

With Gospel Light’s Elementary Sunday School Curriculum you will

  • Help children, parents, and leaders discover Jesus throughout the entire Bible.
  • Layer God’s truth into a child in a life-transforming way through engaging, easy-to-prepare lessons.
  • Be equipped to recruit and develop qualified teachers with weekly teacher-training tips.
  • Connect church and home using weekly take-home papers.
