The photo comes from member Barb Little. who was using the Writing Team's Peter Sinks, Jesus Saves! "Boat and Butter" lesson.

Barb's photo illustrates one of the many things we love about the Rotation Model: It appeals to older kids, including older boys that many churches struggle to keep interested. Most of the "free" lesson plans on the web are for little children. And a lot of the packaged curriculum for older students is boring and sedentary.'s new Writing Team lesson sets are written for a broad-age range, but to especially appeal to older kids -because it's a crucial time in their decision-making about church and faith.

In addition to all our public lesson forums, Supporting Members can access a special collection of lesson plans written by our Writing Team. They are extra awesome, creative, and detailed. See the Writing Team Lesson Menu.

About the Rotation Model and Lessons at Our Site

Our content is primarily organized for those using the Workshop Rotation Model to organize their Sunday School (one story taught several weeks in a row, with a different approach each week). However, our content is easily adaptable by traditional Sunday Schools.

Learn more about the Model
Our site's members and visitors come from many different types and sizes of Sunday Schools and denominations. We're thrilled to be a resource to many. But unlike the ad-driven Bible lesson websites, we are not interested in posting quickie Bible studies with a five minute craft so we can get you to look at an ad. We strive for learning that's deeper, more engaging, and more lasting. (And we are ad-free and 100% member supported.) See our new and improved Writing Team lesson sets for examples of that standard.
