Bible Lessons for Kids

Quality interactive Bible lessons for kids are more important now than ever! We need to capture their attention and bring them back wanting more of God's Word!

The competition for children's attention is high with the "latest" & "greatest" technology gadgets screaming to be heard!  The Bible is "living and active" though; we just need to make it available to kids in a format that will draw them into its wisdom.

Educational research has shown that students of any age have varied learning styles. Therefore, we have tried to locate a variety of free Bible lessons for kids along with activities that will incorporate both visual & auditory stimuli as well as manipulatives for hands-on creativity.

Of course the most important and life changing children's Bible lesson we can teach is how they can come to know Christ as their personal Savior - the message of the Gospel!  One creative way to talk about salvation to children is using an object lesson with seeds or money.

There are all types of Bible lessons for kids that range in both topic and style.  If you're in a hurry, you may want to jump to our topical index of children's Bible lessons.

Bible Stories - Old Testament to New

Bible Lesson Plans for Church or Home-school

We love the fact that so many free Sunday School lessons are being developed by creative Christians and offered here on the web!  Many of us may be working on a "shoe-string" budget, and both Sunday School and home-school material can be expensive!

That's why we want to locate & collect free Bible  lessons for kids  in one central location for easy access and also provide other Christian resources to help equip you as a Bible teacher!  These resources include easy to use Bible lesson plans,  extended Bible activities, games & crafts, as well as bulletin board ideas and  other equipping resources for you the teacher.

Family Bible Study Lessons

family Bible lessons & devotions

Let's not forget the importance of Family Bible lessons for kids being taught each and every day in our homes! 

On more than one occasion, the Bible instructs us as parents to teach our children "as we go."  Deuteronomy chapter 6  is one such reference. 

Deuteronomy 29:29 goes on to say:   "The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law."

Bible lessons for children can be taught as we do chores around the house, as we sit and read a book together, as we travel on vacation, on special holidays...literally everywhere we go!  Another great challenge is to help our kids hide God's Word in their hearts as they memorize Bible verses.

As a family we can begin planting God's Word into our little ones' hearts while they are still preschoolers and continue up through their teenage years and more!

Holiday Bible lessons for special occasions

Holiday Lessons

Holidays offer special times and unique ways to plant God's Word into children's lives.  In fact seasonal church events and services may be some of the only times many children are brought to church.  Let's make the most of these special moments whether it's for kids at church or our own children.

During this Christmas season use Christian Christmas activities including Christmas traditions and object lessons to keep Christ at the center of CHRISTmas.

We also have two series of Christmas Bible lessons for kids -

Or for creative additions for children's Bible lessons for your Christian Easter celebration try these great Easter activities and object lessons.

Even Halloween or Fall Festivals can become a time for us to teach about the light of Christ using this pumpkin Gospel lesson and other creative Christian Halloween alternatives.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to focus on giving God thanks and praise. Developing and attitude of gratitude takes practice and positive examples. Thanksgiving children's Bible lessons, crafts, games, object lessons, etc. can help us teach children & youth this most important lifestyle while also reminding ourselves!

Bible Memory Lessons

Teaching children the importance of learning Bible memory verses   is yet another important aspect. We have attempted to bring you several creative Bible activities, games, and coloring sheets that will help change the "work" into fun! The childhood years are a great opportunity to fill those little minds and hearts with good things!

This is also a great time for young ones to learn the books of the Bible! We've included the "famous" Books of the Bible song along with Books of the Bible flash cards which are great for teaching preschoolers too. While they are young is the prime time to take advantage of their amazing ability to memorize.

Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
