Teaching Resources

Below are teaching resources our to help your little one continue to grow in God's Word. You can do a session a week or progress at your own pace.

Unit 1. Jesus, the Great Teacher

Session 1
Jesus Read the Scroll (based on Luke 4:16-22)
Unit and Weekly Verse: God sent Jesus to teach the good news. Luke 4:18
Life Point: Jesus taught that the Bible tells about Him.

Jesus read from Isaiah in the Scriptures. He told the people that the words of the prophet were about Him. Sit with your child and his Bible. Turn the pages together. Say that all of the Bible tells about Jesus. Find Jesus’ name in today’s Bible passage (Luke 4). Place a sticky note in your child’s Bible at this passage so he can open to it again.

Session 2
Jesus Taught About God’s Care (based on Matthew 6:25-34)
Unit Verse: God sent Jesus to teach the good news. Luke 4:18
Weekly Verse: God knows what you need. Matthew 6:8
Life Point: Jesus taught about God’s care.

Jesus taught about God’s care. He said not to worry; God knows what you need. Talk with your family about how God helps your family have what you need. Pray and thank God for His care.

Session 3
Jesus Healed a Woman (based on Luke 13:10-17)
Unit Verse: God sent Jesus to teach the good news. Luke 4:18
Weekly Verse: God cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
Life Point: Jesus taught that people are important to God.

Jesus healed a woman with a crooked back. The leaders were angry, but Jesus told them caring for people was very important. Walk around your neighborhood with your child or family. Comment that each person in each house is important to God. Stop outside a house and pray for the family that lives there.

Session 4
Jesus Told About a Loving Father (based on Luke 15:11-32)
Unit Verse: God sent Jesus to teach the good news. Luke 4:18
Weekly Verse: We know God loves us. 1 John 4:16
Life Point: Jesus taught that God always loves.

Jesus taught that God always loves. Read or talk about the Bible story with your child. Remind him that God loves people the way the father loved his son. Say with your child the verse “We know God loves us. 1 John 4:16.” Think of a person who needs to hear about God’s love today. With your child, text God loves you to that person.

Session 5
Jesus Taught About Giving (based on Mark 12:41-44)
Unit Verse: God sent Jesus to teach the good news. Luke 4:18
Weekly Verse: The woman gave all she had. Mark 12:44
Life Point: Jesus taught about giving to God.

Jesus talked to His disciples about a woman’s gift of two small coins. Help your preschooler learn to have a giving heart by being an example. Ask her to help you prepare your family’s offering for church. If she attends worship with you, allow her to place an offering in the offering plate. Tell your child that giving money at church is a way to thank God for His love and care.

Unit 2. Jesus Is Alive

Session 1
The Crowd Welcomed Jesus (based on Matthew 21:1-11)
Unit and Weekly Verse: God loved us and sent His Son. 1 John 4:10
Life Point: God sent Jesus because He loves us.

As Easter approaches, focus on the fact that God loved us and sent His Son. Talk with your family about Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem and the welcome from the crowd. Reenact the story with your family. Choose one person to be Jesus and walk across the room. The other family members can lay down towels in front of “Jesus.” Repeat with different family members being Jesus. Say that the people did the things they did to show Jesus is special, God’s Son.

Session 2 (Babies, 1s & 2s)
Jesus Helped His Friends (based on John 13:1-7,14-15)
Unit Verse: God loved us and sent His Son. 1 John 4:10
Weekly Verse: Jesus said, “I love you.” John 15:9
Life Point: Jesus helped people.

Jesus helped people. He washed His helpers’ feet. As your child splashes in the tub, say that Jesus loved and helped His friends. Tell your child that Easter is a time when we celebrate the things that Jesus did.

Jesus Is Alive (based on Matthew 28:1-10)
Unit Verse: God loved us and sent His Son. 1 John 4:10

Weekly Verse (Kindergarten): God loved the world and gave His Son. John 3:16
Life Point: People can tell that Jesus is alive.

People can tell others Jesus is alive. Two men talked to Jesus as they walked on the road to Emmaus. After they recognized Him, they ran to tell others. Your family can tell about Jesus, too. Print the name Jesus on large index cards. Ask your child (and other family members) to decorate around the name with crayons. Jot today’s Bible verse on the bottom of the card. On the back, address the card to a friend and mail it.

Session 4
Peter Preached About Jesus (based on Acts 2)
Unit Verse: God loved us and sent His Son. 1 John 4:10
Weekly Verse: Jesus is the Son of God. John 20:31
Life Point: People can learn that Jesus is God’s Son.

On the day of Pentecost, Peter was empowered by the Holy Spirit. Many people heard the bold sermon he preached and believed that Jesus is God’s Son. Thank God for the teachers and leaders who tell you and your children about Jesus. Ask God to help your family learn more about His Son.

Coloring Sheets


Here at First Baptist Forney we strive for excellence. We believe strongly in the responsibilities of the home and church in helping with the spiritual nurturing of your child. To help accomplish this, our Bible Study literature focuses on these eight areas: Jesus, God, Natural World, Bible, Family, Others, Church and Self.

We have trained volunteers on site to care for your baby and toddler. Please help us by bringing the following for your baby: diapers, wipes, bottles, pacifiers, a change of clothes, and any special blankets that will soothe your baby. For toddlers, please bring a sippy cup. Label all items that belong to your child.

If your child has any allergies or special needs, please inform the teachers.
