Writing Team News
Did you see the Writing Team's new "Elijah Super Set" ?? We combined three major Elijah stories in one terrific set with seven lessons to choose from, including a LEGO workshop!
Coming Late September: Nicodemus and Jesus. Nicodemus and Jesus answers the question, "how can you see that Jesus really is the King and enter his Kingdom?"
Coming this fall from the Writing Team:
- Garden of Gethsemane, available late October.
- Road to Emmaus, available late November.
See the list of all the Writing Team Lesson Sets. Guests and registered members can view the Team's lesson summaries and Bible backgrounds. Supporting Members get access to all the great Team lessons! Become a Supporting Member today.
