Adult—Youth 1 The goal of the Joyful Life Bible Study program is for
each student of the Word to deepen his relationship with Christ by enriching his understanding of the
Bible. Teaching the Bible is a great honor and a solemn responsibility.
Junior—Toddler In addition to the Bible story, each lesson includes Bible truths
which teach and review basic doctrine through questions children can understand and remember. As they
answer simple questions such as Who is Jesus? Who wrote the Bible? and
Is all of the Bible true?, children learn the fundamentals of the Christian faith and grow in
their knowledge of God and His Word.
Adult—Youth 2 The teacher is successful when lessons are taught, not read.
Highlighted headings, Bible references, and teaching visuals are used so that each moment is utilized
to the fullest.
Youth 1—Toddler Every Teacher Guide begins with valuable instruction for new
and experienced teachers. Procedures are suggested for telling Bible stories, teaching new songs and
memory verses, and managing a classroom. Other topics include teaching children how to pray and leading
children to Christ. Throughout the curriculum are more helpful ideas and suggestions for effective teaching.
A life that is focused on God is one that is full of joy—and that is the focus of the
Joyful Life Bible Study program and Sunday school curriculum. Our goal is not to entertain,
but to teach the Bible in a way that adults and children will learn and remember throughout life. We
believe that the Bible itself is “entertaining” and, what is more important, that it is
relevant to our lives today. Centered on the Word of God, this program not only interests children
through colorful visuals and exciting Bible narratives, but it also educates them in the ways of the
Lord and molds their lives for Christ. Adults and youth are visually stimulated by teaching posters,
charts, and visuals. The program is designed to build up their faith and equip them to effectively
present their beliefs to others.
Adult—Youth 1 Highlighted headings help the teacher of the Word make appropriate
applications throughout the lessons. Such thoughts are easily reviewed by the teacher as a springboard
for the next lesson.
Junior—Toddler Joyful Life features a unique built-in review to ensure
that children remember previous lessons and that the Scriptural principles they have learned remain with
them. Every lesson includes time for review and specific material for that time. This applies not only
to the Bible lessons but also to songs, verses, and Bible truths.
