The What’s in the Bible? Curriculum is coming in November!

Not every Sunday School Lady (or Gentleman!) has a magic flannelgraph … and those that don’t will soon be able to have the next-best-thing to teach children about the Bible!

Sunday School Lady, Buck Denver, Clive & Ian, and the whole What’s in the Bible? crew will be available to come to a Sunday School near you starting November 15, 2010.

 

DVD 1 will release November 15, and DVDs 2-4 will be ready in January 2011. Each DVD features 4 weeks of lessons and will be available physically or digitally.

 

Here are some highlights:

– Videos, music and more from Phil Vischer

Each lesson features videos from Phil Vischer’s new series What’s in the Bible? as well as music and interactive games. See an example at the bottom of this page.

– Bible literacy

Bible literacy-focused lessons aim to teach children more than just Bible stories, but how all the little stories fit together to tell one BIG story of God and what He’s done for us.

– Comprehensive and chronological

13 DVDs will walk your class through the Bible from GENESIS to REVELATION! It’s a comprehensive and chronological look at God’s Word.

– Flexible format

The flexible format means you can use What’s in the Bible? in the way that works best for YOU! Large group-small group? Just large group? Either one works! You can also download and customize the lessons to suit your class.

– Mobile access for leaders

Leaders will have access to a mobile web site to help them prepare for each week’s lesson from anywhere. They can also lead from their smart phone on Sunday mornings using the online leaders’ guides.

– Family interaction

Families can interact with the What’s in the Bible? characters, videos, and lessons online. Family activities and a weekly “Big Question” will help parents keep up with what their kids are learning at church and give families ways to learn more about the Bible together!

Here’s a sample video from the DVD 1 Curriculum:

I am so stinking excited about this! We have been using the first three DVDs for a mid-week class, and I've been developing the accessory materials myself (which I love). It will be so great to have a more professional version and sections of the DVDs adapted for the teaching environment. Did I mention that I'm excited about this? oh, okay, good!

I have DVD 1-3. Are they the same as the DVD's coming with the curriculum or will I have to re-buy different DVD's?

Just want to let you know how much my kinder kids love What's in the Bible! I have the first 3 videos and they are a great compliment to me Bible teaching. ( I teach in a Christian school.) I hope the videos have more of the Sunday School Lady because she is such a help explaining the book we are studying for the kids. Here is a funny story: the two brothers that sing with the wigs, sorry I forgot their names, were on and one of my kids said," Oh, they are so handsome!" Keep up the good work! I can't wait to get all the videos! Are the new videos going to be different than the current ones?

I know you are probably done with this, but one idea for the curriculum that really helps us is having the info presented in pdf as well as Word. The reason being we have to end up re-type everything if we need to make it fit out church. When it is in Word we just need to tweak it. No curriculum is every perfect as is for every church, so this option would be great! A few publishers do this for us and it works really, really well. Looking forward to this because the DVDs are so great! LOVE YOU PHIL!

I am looking forward to this, but concerned about cost for a smaller church. How will the pricing work?

Phil- This is awesome. Love the mart phone idea and interactive wesite features. I've been so excited to find out about this curriculum. I have a few questions: 1. For large group, is the format like kidmo where you need an emcee, but do not "teach" live? Is any live teaching required? 2. What printable materials are included? (pdf's for takehome sheets/ cards, etc) 3. Can we see a scope and sequence for what will be covered per dvd and for the whole series? 4. What is the cost per dvd and is there an extra fee for families to use the website?

This sounds great! Is there any chance there will be a full sample lesson available for review before ordering? I would just like to see if it would work for our classes' setup.

How much will this cost? We are currently looking for curriculum for our small Sunday School class.

Janet, the curriculum will be available in both formats: Word and PDF. We want to make it easy to customize for churches based on their needs. But thanks for the suggestion ... great minds think alike!

Pricing will be flexible based on how much of the curriculum you want. We will be selling it by week and by month, and eventually in bundles of several months at a time. We'll have more details about pricing soon!

Jen, thanks for your questions! We'll be releasing more details and sample lessons as we get closer to the date of release. There will be live teaching required, but most of that is in the form of leading small groups after watching a video. There will be several different printables with each week - games, activities, take-homes and more! We will release a scope and sequence and pricing information in the next few weeks. There will not be an extra charge for families to use the web site. Let us know if you have any more questions!
