WHAT IF JESUS COULD TEACH YOUR KIDS?
HE CAN...THROUGH YOU!
Jesus was the master at using creative objects—like coins, fish, and lilies—to connect eternal truths to everyday life.
With Hands-On Bible Curriculum, kids experience the same powerful connections between Scripture and everyday life by engaging all five of their senses. The Bible comes alive!
CREATIVE GIZMOS HELP YOUR VOLUNTEERS TEACH LIKE JESUS
What’s a gizmo, you might ask? Gizmos are fun, interesting objects that help
kids discover God’s truths in unforgettable ways.
They help kids retain 90% of what they’re taught! Kids will remember what they learned weeks, months,
and years later because they truly experienced the lesson!
KIDS UNDERSTAND GOD’S WORD, LOVE IT,
AND REMEMBER IT FOR A LIFETIME
Hands-On Bible Curriculum is a quarterly, age-graded curriculum for toddlers through 6th graders.
The two-year scope & sequence guides kids through the Bible, as they learn and understand biblical truths
and develop a deeper, thriving relationship with Jesus.

have learned and help them apply it to their daily lives.
