Parables of the Lost Sheep and Lost Coin
- Luke 15
Seven fresh and wonderfully creative lessons about two of Jesus' most important parables. Supporting Members can copy or download, and adapt the lessons as they wish. Everyone can read the lesson summaries and Bible background.
All Writing Team lesson plans are broadly graded and include adaptations for younger and older students, shorter and longer classes. The Team's lessons are in addition to our hundreds of publicly available lesson ideas and plans. Learn more about the Team and see a complete list of all their lessons!
- Genesis 1:1 - 2:3
Six creative lessons that focus on the joyful and creative character of God revealed in the story, and what it means to be made by God in his joyful and creative character (image). Lessons include a creative art project, a cool special effects-assisted song, use of the book "When God Made the World," and games, a glowing "science" lesson, and free Creation story software.
- Genesis 2:4 – 3:24
This creative set takes a unique look at this story, "beyond the snake and apple" so to speak, and looks at what it reveals about the character of God when confronted with sinful children. The lessons also remind us that God goes with us into difficult lives, and promises us a new paradise one day with him.

About the Rotation Model and Organization of Our Site
The lesson content in each of our Bible Story Lesson Forums is organized by creative teaching mediums such as art, video, and cooking. In the Rotation Model we teach a major story for several weeks in a row --each week using a different "workshop" (teaching medium). if you're using a traditional "new story each week" model, browse all the workshops for your story and pick one that fits your needs. View a short video about the Model.
