How it works

A three-year curriculum with lessons that correspond to the Revised Common Lectionary. Every lesson has four parts: Gather, Open the Bible, Activate Faith, and Send. Kids can bring their Spark Bibles to class, or you can purchase a set to keep in the classroom.

Printed lesson materials are sold for fall, winter, and spring, and you can access leader content with a Sparkhouse Online subscription.

Spark Bibles

Spark children's Bibles are the core of the curriculum and serve as the foundation of every lesson.

"One of our interns for our 10-week summer sports camp said this about the new kids Spark Bible: 'It is out of this universe the best Bible for kids!' The Spark Bible communicates well. It has a fun approach, yet tells the story clearly."
Brent , pastor, Illinois
"The stories keep kids' attention spans in mind and everyone can sit through them. The language is great and the kids can see themselves in the stories. They've been able to connect the parts. Spark has equipped families for reading the Bible together."
Danielle , North Carolina
