Growing Up In Grace: Bible Events – Book 1


Teacher’s Manual for the Junior Level (Ages 9-11)

Topics: Before Creation – Exodus from Egypt

In this book, students will discover God’s plan for mankind as they study the real-life events recorded in Genesis and Exodus. The lessons in this teacher’s manual show how God demonstrated His power, extended His mercy, judged unbelief, and blessed those who believed and obeyed Him. These examples in Scripture are given for our learning. Each lesson encourages students to understand God’s character and the way He deals with mankind according to His plan, as the course of events unfold. The teaching emphasizes God’s two-fold purpose and applying principles from the Word of God, as it is rightly divided.

Every lesson devotes time for Bible reading and memorization for students, object lessons, review games, and practical application of Biblical truth. Every lesson ends with a presentation of the Gospel and encouragement for students to study and apply the instruction they’ve received from God’s Word.

Each of the thirteen lessons contains:

  • Teacher’s outline
  • Memory verses (KJV)
  • Review questions and games
  • Object lessons
  • Reproducible student page
  • Color visuals
  • Encouragement
  • Application
  • Gospel presentation
