My name is Lorraine Gilbert and I live my passion of helping others through my church and work life. I have been teaching Sunday School and adult classes since 2009. I have served on staff as the Lay Ministry Coordinator and in several volunteer positions. I am also a registered nurse and have been working in the medical field since 2002. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education in 1990, and taught in Houston Public Schools from 1991 to 1996. I say all this very humbly, because without God in my heart, I am nothing. I am hoping that my experience will help you have a stress free and fun class where you can introduce the basics of the Bible.
In 2013, I was given the privilege of teaching the 3rd Grade Sunday School Class. The focus of the class was to teach the children how to use their Bible throughout the year. As with many churches, we give our children a Bible when they start the 3rd grade. The teaching resources for this class were outdated, so I started looking on the internet for other resources. After spending hours researching online and going to local stores, I became increasingly frustrated. I decided to create this book to help others who find themselves in the same situation. With the help of some very good friends, my husband, and beloved clergy, I designed this book for Sunday School, weekly children’s activities, or even homeschool.
This book divides the Bible into a year-long journey with the focus on getting to know the basics and where important stories are located in the Bible. It incorporates the Christian Liturgical Calendar with a typical school year. It is not dated, but certain lesson are better discussed where they fall in the calendar year, so that during Easter we are discussing Easter and in August we are discussing the new school year. With my past teaching experience; both in public school and as a volunteer SundaySchool teacher, this book not only focuses on teaching the Bible, but offers pointers for teaching in general. This book recognizes that most who volunteer to teachSunday School, or weekly activities, are not clergy or certified teachers. This may be used as the main workbook or as a supplement to other material you may already be using.
