NOW AVAILABLE: A Sure Foundation

A Sure Foundation Nursery Curriculum

So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “see, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.”—Isaiah 28:16

Nurturing the faith of the next generations begins with the youngest in your church. The A Sure Foundation curriculum will help you develop a ministry steeped in prayer and overflowing with foundational Bible stories, truth statements about God and Scripture memory. We have refreshed and expanded this curriculum to equip you and your teachers to minister to children through the infant and toddler years.

The expanded A Sure Foundation now includes four parts:

  1. The Fragrance of the Knowledge of Christ establishes the philosophy of ministering in infant nurseries and creates on environment centered on prayer for each baby.
  2. Young toddlers, 18-24 months, are taught four repeating Bible stories and monthly memory verses along with truth statements about God’s character in The Wonders He Has Done.
  3. The Older Toddler Volume 1 Teacher’s Guide, His Praiseworthy Deeds, reviews the four stories already learned, teaches 24- to 36-month-old toddlers nine more foundational stories and completes the monthly memory verses.
  4. For toddlers 36 months and up who have not graduated to a preschool class, the NEW Older Toddler Volume 2 Teacher’s Guide, Set Their Hope in God, introduces 16 additional Bible stories with accompanying memory verses for each lesson.
