Teaching Children: Where Do I Start?

Tell the Story!

This website is based on story.  Although it is a collection of over 170 Bible Stories it is actually only one story, the Story of God as Revealed by Him in His Word.  Click here for complete list of stories and lessons.

The purpose of Mission Bible Class is to help you share God’s Word with children of all ages.  Use and adapt these free resources to teach any age group in all kinds of teaching situations.

A well-told Bible story is the most natural and inter-generational method of sharing the Word of God.  God bless you as you tell the story!

      1. Dear Mary,
        May God bless you richly for your hard work! I came to Mexico seven months ago to work with indigenous tribes living here in the mountains of the Sierra Madre portion of Chihuahua. I was having a terrible time trying to find curriculum to teach that was in Spanish (and to even dream of one in the indigenous Tarahumara language was/is impossible.) I went about creating my own using Pinterest and other open-source websites. Imagine my delight when I found your free curriculum! I was under so much pressure to create these lessons and was very stressed out. My dream was to write one and disperse it for free, but praise God, you have already done it! Bless you!!! Your hard work is the answer to my prayers to our great Father for assistance! I love both the chronological aspect and that you provide wonderful background of the theology that explains the lessons. I would love to meet you and take you to coffee and desert one day as you are my hero!

      2. Hi Cynthia. Wow! You just made my day (week and month). I appreciate your words of encouragement. I’m thrilled that this website is helping in your work. I would love to hear more about it.

        It is my dream to someday translate the site into Spanish but I am having to be patient. People often ask me to explain how a site in English can be used to teach people in other languages. I’d love to hear how you would answer that question.

        May God continue to bless your work there in Mexico.

      3. Hello Mary! It was so nice to hear from you! You are amazing! To translate the lessons to Spanish, I simply use the Google-powered Translate button you have embedded on your pages. Because I am not a native speaker of Spanish and still do not understand many of the nuances, I forward it to my Mexican nephew or Mexican best friend here to proofread and edit it. It works beautifully! I have committed to running the children’s program at the very rural church here for two years before then attempting to learn the language of the Indigenous Tarahumaras who live in the mountains. Now that will be a bear to translate as the language is super tricky and changes a bit from pueblo to pueblo. However, for now, I am resting in God’s providence, your ingenuity, and Google Translate! Bless, bless, bless you!

  1. Dear Sir/Madam,
    I just get connected to know of your Ministry on this Facebook platform today. How do we partner with the Mission Bible Class for Children.
    I worship with Ikoyi Baptist Church, Lagos Nigeria. We are having our annual Vacation Bible Schools this month of June, 2018. Its a week long activities for the Children on holidays between ages (3-19) fully sponsored by the Church for the past (27) years.
    I am also a member of the Church Mission Team that regularly go on Mission program to Outreach where we have children in Mission Schools established by the Church in places like RIJAU/DUKAWA Baptist Mission Center in Niger State and other places in Nigeria. We have children in Nurse & Primary Schools that will benefits from your Ministry in these remote areas.
    If I hear from you, I will be grateful. So I know how our external Mission Team could partner with your Ministry in the years ahead.
    God bless you.

    1. Hello, Thank you for the message. All of the resources for teaching are available for your use here on the website. If you have internet access on a phone or laptop you can refer to the lessons that way.

      For remote areas with no internet access I would suggest downloading a number of resources when you are online so you can use them in the remote area later.

      Most of the activities do not require downloading at all so you can just read about them and then do them with the kids in their own language.

      May God bless you in your work.
