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 3. Tell About Jesus

Session 1 Paul and Barnabas Became Missionaries (based on Acts 13)

Unit Verse: Go and tell the good news about Jesus. Mark 16:15
Weekly Verse: God chose Paul and Barnabas to do His work. Acts 13:2
Life Point: Missionaries go and tell people about Jesus.

Paul and Barnabas were the first missionaries. They were set apart by God to spread the gospel to the people in Asia and Europe. Go to namb.net or imb.org and find stories about missionaries and their work. Talk about these missionaries with your child. Explain that missionaries have different kinds of jobs but the main thing they do is tell people about Jesus. Pray for the missionnaries.

Session 2
Paul Listened to God (based on Acts 15:36-41; 16:1-12)
Unit Verse: Go and tell the good news about Jesus. Mark 16: 15
Weekly Verse: God helps me; I will not be afraid. Hebrews 13:6
Life Point: God helps people tell about Jesus.

God helps people tell about Jesus. Throughout all of Paul's journeys, God's Spirit, the Holy Spirit, helped Paul know where to go and what to do. Read the verse "God helps me; I will not be afraid. Hebrews 13 :6" to your family. Say that God helps your family in many ways. God can help your family know how to tell others about Jesus.

Session 3: Paul Taught in Athens (based on Acts 17:16-34) 

Unit Verse: Go and tell the good news about Jesus. Mark 16: 15
Weekly Verse: We must tell what we have seen and heard about Jesus. Acts 4:20
Life Point: People can tell about God.

Paul told about God and Jesus wherever he went. In the city of Athens, Paul saw that the people there worshiped idols. They even had an altar to an unknown God. Paul boldly told the people in Athens about the one true God. People today can tell about God, too. Lead your family to pray for people in your city and all over the world who tell about God.

Session 4: Paul and Silas Sang to God (based on Acts 16:16-34)

Unit and Weekly Verse: Go and tell the good news about Jesus. Mark 16: 15
Life Point: People can tell about Jesus at all times.

People can tell about Jesus at all times. Sometimes missionaries or others face difficult situations as they tell about Jesus. Paul and Silas were in prison, but they continued to praise God and tell about Jesus. They sang songs to God. Sing "Jesus Loves Me" or a familiar worship song with your family. Thank God that people can tell about Jesus at all times.

Session 5: Peter Told Cornelius About Jesus (based on Acts 10)

Unit Verse: Go and tell the good news about Jesus. Mark 16: 15
Weekly Verse: We tell that God sent His Son for all the world. 1 John 4: 14
Life Point: All people need to know about Jesus.

People everywhere need to know about Jesus. Peter thought he should only tell Jews, but God helped him know that all people need to know about Jesus. Talk about people your family knows and sees regularly-friends, teachers, coaches, people in the community.  Pray together that those people will know about Jesus.

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.
