How do I get the free digital version?
Keith Answered A
When you purchase any Teacher Guide, you'll find a unique Activation Code on the title page. Just set up a free Group Digital online account and enter the activation code to download digital copies of each teacher guide you purchase.

The download files are provided in Adobe PDF and Microsoft Word format. The Word docs are completely editable, so you can customize the lessons to meet the unique needs of your church.

Your Group Digital account will also give you access to a free Director's Manual and free weekly FamilyConnect pages (simple discussion-starters for families to use throughout the week).

Michele Asked Q
1) we are currently using FaithWeaver in our church. How different is this from the new one?
2) do you have electronic version as well?
Keith Answered A
Hi Michele,

Starting Fall 2013, FaithWeaver NOW will replace the existing FaithWeaver program you've been using. The overall lesson plan will stay the same, but the content has been updated to speak to the reality of today's families and the format has been streamlined to make it even easier for your teachers. For specific details about what has changed, I recommend downloading the "7 Wows of FaithWeaver NOW" document found in the lesson samples download area.

Regarding your 2nd question, with FaithWeaver NOW, we will provide a free downloadable "digital copy" of every printed teacher guide you purchase. You'll be able to set up a free Group Digital account where you can download PDF files or editable Word files of these teacher guides that you can print or email to your teachers.

If this did not answer your specific question, please call 800-447-1070 to speak to one of our helpful curriculum consultants.

Eliese Answered A
It is going to be very simiilar, but with what I would call a facelift. There will be an electonic version that is customizable instead of just a pdf file.

Yes. It was just time for a face lift. It will be similar but the downloadable teachers manual will be customizable and you will find some of the content has been updated. Everyone will still learn the same scripture.
Brad Asked Q
I am thinking about using the FaithWeaver Now curriculum with our Jr./Sr. High Sunday Schools classes and to launch a new parent class that will run at a simultaneous hour on Sunday mornings. If I use the 3 different curriculum tracks simultaneously (Jr. High, Sr. High, Parent) will they link up thematically (so that families can talk at home about what they talked about in Sunday School) and chronologically (will they end at the same time and if so what is the time scope of this curriculum)? I hope that didn't come across too confusing!
Kelly Answered A
Hello Brad!
My favorite part of the Faithweaver curriculum is that every age level is studying the same passage each week only with age appropriate activities! So your jr high, sr. high and parent classes would definitely be able to talk about the lessons at home together.

Summer/Fall quarters cover OT and winter/spring quarters look at the NT.
You can go here http://group.com/sunday-school/scope-and-sequence?nodeid=37077 to look over the scope and sequence.

Blessings,
Kelly
Mandy Asked Q
Just wondering if the "faithweavers Now" is going to replace "Faithweavers" as I have read through it and its running is pretty similar. However I did notice that they are not following the same topic order as "Faithweavers" Just asking these questions as I am about to order the next season Summer - and was thinking maybe I should be ordering this instead or is it completely different curriculum. Thanks Mandy
Lisa Answered A
Faithweaver NOW will replace Faithweaver. The new features allow you to customize lessons for your church needs.
Jo Asked Q
Hi
I was wondering if you had any other seasons (spring, fall, summer, winter) of the FaithWeaver Material available for purchase or is it all being released on June 1?
Thank you for your help
Jo
Eliese Answered A
Faith weaver is available now in the old format, so you can get the upcoming Summer 2013 or the Spring 2013 now. The updated version begins with the Fall 2013.
Missy Asked Q
I am on the Faith Weaver SOP plan. Will I be receiving the Faith Weaver NOW curriculum? Also, do SOP customers receive the wall decals?
Casey Answered A
Hi, Missy! Yes and yes! Customers that are on the Easy Order Program are definitely able to get the wall decals. As long as your FaithWeaver Now order is $250 or more, you will be receiving these awesome gifts. The decals will begin shipping the beginning of July, so you can expect them after that. Thanks for all you do!
John Asked Q
I am currently using the Hands on Curriculum and will be changing to Faith Weaver. I see that Faith Weaver Now comes out in the fall. Is there a regular Faith Weaver that I can order for the summer? I teach 5th and 6th graders in Sunday School.

Yes, Faithweaver Summer 2013 is available.
Casey Answered A
Yes, you can purchase FaithWeaver Summer 2013 at group.com/faithweaver. I hope you enjoy!

Alicia Asked Q
It seems as though this curriculum is already out even though the advertising that I have for it says that it is new this Fall. I was looking at the scope and sequence and if I wanted to order this for Fall it seems as though I would step right into the middle of David's life...is this correct? Or am I reading this incorrectly? Please advise.
Lee Answered A
Hello! Thanks for your question! FaithWeaver NOW is on a 3-year scope and sequence. Fall 2013 happens to be the beginning of the second of the three years. In Fall 2014 the first quarter of year one begins again, with Genesis. Below is a link to the 3-year scope and sequence. If you'd like more info, please email me at lsparks@group.com.

Lori Asked Q
We currently use Faithweaver. How is Faithweaver NOW different?
Casey Answered A
Hi, Lori! FaithWeaver Now is the same FaithWeaver that you know and love, with some WOW improvements. It will continue following the same scope & sequence, and will automatically replace the original FaithWeaver this Fall. We have gone through and updated and improved all the lessons to make them even easier to follow. We have also also added FREE, editable, digital versions of all the teacher guides as well. You can check everything out at group.com/faithweavernow. You're gonna love it!
MOSES Asked Q
What bible version is best suited to six year olds
Lisa Answered A
I recommend Group's Hands On Bible because it is a NLT translation. The NLT is easier for children to read and understand than other translations.
Richard Asked Q
how much does it cost?
Eliese Answered A
It depends on what age group and what elements you purchase. You will at least need the leaders guide and the teacher resource box if for children. The student pages are very useful. Go to www.group.com/sunday-school/faithweaver/now For more details.
Katie Asked Q
What do you have new for the high school curriculum?
Keith Answered A
For FaithWeaver NOW Senior High, you only need to purchase the Teacher Guide. There's no Student Book or Teacher Pack to buy separately for this age level.

The Teacher Guide, like all ages, includes a free customizable digital copy. For Senior High, it also includes reproducible take-home handouts for the students.

Each lesson is designed to be 60-65 minutes and includes great ways for students to connect and have an introduction to the point, learn from the Bible in an experiential way, and apply the Bible to their lives. Plus, each week has an optional Media Connection you can use in lieu of another activity, using a song, movie clip, or internet search.

We've really worked on making sure this age level is age-appropriate and not too "hokey" for high school students to want to participate. They'll be engaged in the activities and think differently as they discuss the lesson.
Lisa Asked Q
Hi:

I have already signed up for Faithweaver this fall. Do I still get a gift? :-)

Lisa Kessler
Casey Answered A
Hi, Lisa! As long as you purchased more than $250 worth of FaithWeaver Now for Fall, you will get the free gift. We hope you enjoy it!
Gina Asked Q
How does FaithWeaver NOW differ from Faith Weaver? I am the new children's ministry director at Commerce First United Methodist Church in Commerce, GA. We have been using Faith Weaver for a number of years.
Casey Answered A
Hi, Gina! FaithWeaver Now is the new and improved version of the FaithWeaver you are currently using. It has all the same great features FaithWeaver does, and it follows the same scope and sequence, we have just made some WOW improvements. All the lessons are easier to follow and teach, and are customizable. We also now have a digital engine where you can download copies of your teacher guides for FREE! We know you're going to love it!
Alan Asked Q
I just placed an easy order for the fall that meets the dollar amount. Do I qualify for the free decals?
Casey Answered A
Hi, Alan!

Yes, you qualify. As long as you spend $250 or more on FaithWeaver Now for fall, you will be receiving the two free wall decals. You're gonna love them!
Anita Asked Q
What version of the Bible are the lessons prepared from?
Lisa Answered A
New Living Translation
Sally Asked Q
Hi! I have just downloaded samples for the "Faithweaver" SS curriculum for various ages. This may seem like a rather "duh" question, but is the curriculum in print form at all or do we have to purchase the electronic form and print everything? Thanks in advance for your help!
Eliese Answered A
Not a duh question. So many publishers have gone to that, but not Group. There is still a hard copy. You have the ability to customize if you want to.
Joni Asked Q
I am looking for a Sunday School Curriculum that is easy for volunteers and also meaningful at the same time. Is Faith Weaver a good series?
Joni
Lisa Answered A
Yes, Faithweaver NOW is easy for volunteers and the experiences provided are not just meaningful, they are intentionally designed to transform children's lives so they grow in their personal relationship with Jesus. My teachers prefer Faithweaver NOW over all other curriculum we've used in the past. The parent Connection component will help connect the parents to the lesson as well.
Eliese Answered A
I agree with Lisa. The children also use their Bible's each week. There are several different ways the lesson is taught to reach all types of learning.

Carley Asked Q
Are the student pages for faithweaver now available for digital download?
Lisa Answered A
The student books are not currently available for download. By the way, since they are full color, purchasing them is much less costly than printing them on your own.

Fran Asked Q
Looking for class curriculum for Kindergarden-1st grade. Do you cover that age range?
Fran
Eliese Answered A
Yes. It is divided into K4 & K5 and then 1st & 2nd, but you could use the 1st & 2nd grade material for a K5 & st grade class.
Megan Asked Q
Hi,
I am the children's director at my church and we are looking to change up our curriculum. We are looking for something that will tie together the Sunday School hour with Children's Church. One of my team members looked at the Faith Weaver curriculum and liked it but I can't tell if there are materials for both groups. Can you tell me if this curriculum will work or if you have something else that will better suit our needs.
Thank you,
Megan Stinnett
Tricia Answered A
Hi Megan! Faithweaver would be perfect for you! There is a companion curriculum for Children's Church called Kids Own Worship. It uses the same stories and Bible points to go along with Faithweaver each week, but has completely different activities, lessons, music, etc. It is super flexible to however much time you have with your kids as well! God's blessings as you choose new curriculum!
Tricia Hamilton
Christina Asked Q
Is Faithweaver - Now, the replacement circulum for Faithweaver?
If so, how do they differ?
If not, when will the Faithweaver Ciriculum be available?
Keith Answered A
Yes, FaithWeaver NOW replaces FaithWeaver as of Fall 2013. FaithWeaver NOW follows the same scope & sequence as FaithWeaver, but the Teacher Guides have been updated to be clearer and easier to use and more relevant to today's families.

We also now provide free digital copies of each lesson so you can more easily customize and share them with your teachers.

Check out the "7 Wows of FaithWeaver NOW" found in the sample download area of the website for more details.
