Please post your Proverb lesson ideas and resources here.


Proverbs are not usually taught in the typical Rotation Model church for a number of reasons:

1. In Rotation, we teach one passage for four to five weeks, and thus, must prioritize which stories we choose to teach. In a traditional program their are 52 scripture passages in a year. In Rotation, maybe 12, but we cover them more in-depth, and in more memorable ways.


2. Proverbs tend to teach truths which are found in other passages, and particularly, in stories which are easier to remember and richer in detail.  It's a lot easier to develop creative lessons on a story than a one-liner.


3. Many great proverbs can be taught in other teaching venues, such as, fellowship groups, and children's sermons.


All that said, each Rotation church chooses what it wants to teach, and if you have good Proverbs lessons and resources to share, please do!

Original Post

Here is a series of 5 short (3 minute) videos from Pursue God that would be good for starting discussions and introducing lessons on proverbs: Proverbs for Kids

Each video has a lesson, some with simple games or crafts, and all have coloring sheets.

CAUTION: as with most lessons on the Proverbs, these five video lessons tend to be works based rather than grace based. And kind of moralistic..... A good starting point for conversation, maybe?
