Lesson Plans that Work is published by The Episcopal Church and designed to follow the Revised Common Lectionary, these lesson plans are written by experienced church school teachers using practical approaches to respond to the needs of volunteer teachers.
Each week, you will find a lesson plan for young children, a lesson plan for older children, and usually a lesson plan for adults. Inter-generational lesson plans are available for many major feast days throughout the liturgical year. Most lesson plans are based on the Gospel, and some also have an Old Testament Lesson Plan.
These lesson plans can be used as written, or they are easy to adapt to reflect the context of your congregation’s children’s program. You can find all the lesson plans, resources, and information at Lesson Plans that Work.
