How it Works
Bible2School is a program that provides free elective Bible classes to elementary school children attending public school during the school day. The children walk or are bused to a nearby church or partner location where trained volunteers engage the children in lively worship and Bible stories. Children and volunteers discuss how they can apply the Bible lessons in their lives and pray together.
At Bible2School, we teach our children who God is and about the love and hope that Jesus provides. Bible2School’s curriculum offers children engaging lessons to help them learn Biblical truths and values, love Jesus and live out their faith.
What makes Bible2School’s curriculum different from other Bible-based curriculum?
- The curriculum is designed for specifically for school release time programs, meaning that it is made for being taught within the time constraints of a school hour.
- Lessons explain the Gospel message in child-friendly terms so that children without any church background can understand.
- Every lesson’s main idea is unpacked during small group time at each child’s level of understanding so they they will have thorough understanding of the material and life application.
