Scope & Sequence

Concordia's Sunday School programs focus on Bible literacy, helping kids learn about God’s plan of salvation as it unfolds in the Old Testament, in the life and ministry of Jesus, and the growth of the early church as recorded in the Gospels and Acts.

Both Growing in Christ and Cross Explorations Sunday School quarters are undated to provide the flexibility congregations requested. Bible stories are not repeated in the regular scope and sequence. Free seasonal lessons are provided as needed for Christmas, Palm Sunday, and Easter that can be integrated as works best for each congregation.

Object lessons, hymn and song recordings, and other resources to teach Sunday School students about the festivals and seasons of the Church Year can be found in Church Year Connections.

Because materials are updated, congregations have usage options: the recommended quarter option or chronological quarter option.
