Reply to "Here are a variety of Scope & Sequences from a variety of churches!"

Here's another six year story plan rather organized around yearly "themes" from First Pres in Mankato MN

To determine our 6 year S&S we used and this website, along with help from our pastors. We are still working out the "bugs" of this S&S, so any suggestions would be much appreciated (Our writing team consists of me and me alone!!!)! We try to balance the old and new testament lessons each year. Oh, and we do not have Sunday School during the summer, so our biggest challenge is fitting it all in...

We have already done year 1 and 6 (don't ask...) and will be starting year 2 in September.
