Free Sunday school lessons can be found on websites such as Sunday School Center. This website offers lessons broken down by age group and occasion, and users can download sets or individual lessons.
The Sunday School Center website breaks down free Sunday school lessons into the categories of preschool, youth, and holidays. The preschool lessons are appropriate for ages 4 to 7 and the youth lessons are appropriate for ages 12 to 18. The holiday lessons are about popular Christian holidays such as Palm Sunday, Easter and Christmas as well as more secular holidays such as Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Users can click on a category and bring up a selection of Sunday school lessons. Near the top of the page, lessons are grouped into related categories, such as "God Loves Me" or "Life of Jesus." Below them, users can view the individual lessons that are part of the individual sets. Clicking on the lessons brings up printable PDF files.
The lessons inside the files offer instructions on the materials the teacher will need, the major point of the lesson, the specific steps for the lesson, and a memory verse and suggested pep talk for the teacher to give. The file also contains suggested activities that allow children to respond to the lesson. These activities include crafts and games.
