CSM’s Hope Bearer

Since we have started homeschooling many years back, I have always been on the look out for Bible curriculums we can use not just at home but also for our church’s kids ministry. I was delighted to know that this December, CSM has launched their newest curriculum made for Sunday School entitled Hope Bearer: Lessons of Hope and Courage in Times of Crisis and Change. 

We all know that the pandemic has changed the landscape of Sunday School ministry and to aid teachers and parents in this season, this curriculum was developed with the message that there is hope in God and we can always rely on Him. During this time of crisis, we must not forget our children need to understand  that God is still faithful, powerful and reliable and that they can trust Him.

Hope Bearer contains 30 lessons of hope and courage for children suitable for ages 4-12. It is a tool for teachers to use in the  regular Sunday school ministry, online ministry or even in the home setting.

Hope Bearer includes:

¨      options for adjusting activities to suit online classes;

¨      links to online action song videos to enhance Bible learning;

¨      downloadable Teaching Pictures and craft templates families can print at home;

¨      suggestions for collaborating with parents to enable home-based Sunday school;

¨      a checklist for monitoring children’s spiritual growth and character development.

Here are some photos of the lessons:

The curriculum has an easy to follow layout and has already listed all the information one would need to prepare for Bible lessons. For every lesson, there is a Bible Text, Objectives, Memory Verse, Opening Activities and Closing Activities. The Opening Activities is further divided into Connect, Study and Apply.

A spiritual growth and character development checklist is included and it can be helpful to teachers and parents to see the cognitive, affective and psychomotor development of the children. They can use the checklist as goals for the children as well.

This is a good guide for parents since there is minimal preparation needed and has very detailed instructions on the different activities.

Hope Bearer is in paperback edition and contains 116 pages. It is currently available for 269 pesos only from CSM Publishing’s Lazada store . For more information, you may visit CSM Publishing’s website.
