Let's Make Sundays
Less Complicated

Sunday School Teacher

Simply for You

Get back to what matters most—helping kids love God and others! Take out the Sunday complication so you can focus on your kids.

  • sunday school curriculum recruits

    Simplified Recruiting

    Quick lesson prep for a single leader. All other volunteers (called Crew Guides) simply show up and participate with kids. It’s a snap to assemble your Sunday morning team!

  • supplies

    Simplified Supplies

    Gather easy-to-find supplies once a month. Easy on your time…and budget!

  • leader guide

    Simplified Leader Guide

    With a glance-able layout, Leaders spend more time interacting with kids and less time glued to scripts.

  • lesson plan

    Simplified Lesson Plan

    Take a breath! You don’t need to “get through” every activity. Everything points back to the Bible Point—and to Jesus—no matter how far you get! Plus, lessons work in any classroom format.

Sunday School Volunteers

Simply for Volunteers

We made a list of what keeps people who love Jesus and kids from volunteering on Sundays—and then we made it easier than ever to serve!

  • responsibilities

    Simplified Responsibilities

    If your volunteers are too busy to memorize a script or plan a lesson, that’s okay! Most volunteers—called Crew Guides—just show up and participate with kids. One Leader will direct kids and Crew Guides, so Crew Guides simply focus on relationships!

  • curriculum requirements

    Simplified Requirements

    Since most volunteers are helpers who simply participate with kids, they don’t have to be Bible experts—just people who love Jesus and kids!

  • sunday school staff training

    Simplified Training

    Perfect for volunteer newbies, Simply Loved includes training videos that cover the basics of good volunteering. The videos are short (10 minutes or less) and cover everything from how to ask open-ended questions to classroom management.

  • friendship

    Simply Made for Friendships

    Since volunteers aren’t worrying about a performance or leading the lesson, they can do what they love: hang out with kids and share God’s love!

Sunday School Kids

Simply for Kids

Every activity, song, and visual in Simply Loved is designed to help kids remember each lesson long after their children’s ministry years.

  • age specific sunday school

    Age-Specific Teaching

    Elementary kids (1st-4th grade) learn differently than Pre-K & K kids (ages 3-5), so we’ve intentionally designed two separate, age-appropriate programs.

  • bible memory

    Captivating Bible Memory

    When kids meet a character they love, they remember! That’s why we include animal characters called Bible Memory Buddies to help kids remember who God is and how much he loves them.

  • connecting to creation

    Connecting God to His Creation

    Every week uses a different animal characteristic to cement Bible learning. These fun facts fascinate kids and show them how God can be seen in every corner of his creation!

  • hands on sunday school curriculum

    Hands-On Learning

    Kids don’t learn best when all they do is sit and listen. We get kids moving and experiencing God’s Word through multiple multi-sensory activities!

Family

Simply for Families

Built to support your family ministry, Simply Loved brings families together and provides great resources for parents.

  • same scope and sequence

    Same Scope and Sequence

    All ages follow the same scope and sequence, including the same Bible story, Bible Memory Verse, and Bible Memory Buddy, so siblings learn and share together!

  • month long curriculum theme

    Month-Long Themes

    Made for today’s busy families, each Simply Loved Unit features a single Bible Point, so kids who miss a week or two still get great Bible learning. And kids who come every week go even deeper!

  • take homes

    Take-Homes

    Simply Loved Take-It-Home Flyers and Coloring Creation pages take the fun and excitement of that week’s lesson and bring it home. Created to provide intentional, practical, and easy ways for kids and the rest of the family to discuss that week’s Bible Point and apply it to their lives.

    Plus, kids receive a super-cool Bible Memory Buddy sticker to wear, keep, or collect.

  • resources for parents

    Parent Resources

    Additional digital resources for parents, including email and social media assets, are included in the Simply Loved Plus Digital Kit.

Simply Loved Sunday School Curriculum Buddies

Simply Loved's
Strategic Approach

The guiding principles behind the creation of Simply Loved Sunday school curriculum.

You may have heard…But we’ve found…That’s why…
“It’s hard to recruit volunteers.”When volunteers need less prep time, have fun, and feel like they’re making a difference, they’ll make serving a priority.Simply Loved volunteer roles are important, but easy!
“Kids need to be entertained.”Kids need to be noticed and loved.Simply Loved lessons are designed to help you listen to kids and get to know them.
“You need a lot of supplies.”You need only a few supplies used in creative ways.Simply Loved incorporates minimal supplies each unit but uses them in innovative ways to introduce and apply the day’s lesson.
“We need helpers—any warm body will do.”Helpers don’t just assist. Even though they don’t need to prep, they serve an important relational purpose and make a big difference in kids’ lives.Simply Loved helpers have a name and an elevated role: they’re “Crew Guides”! They participate along with the kids, play a meaningful role in lessons, and make a difference by building friendships with kids.
“Kids are rarely able to remember Scripture.”Creating a visual and emotional connection to Scripture dramatically helps kids remember and understand why the Bible matters in their everyday lives.Simply Loved incorporates kid-friendly video featuring Bible Memory Buddies (animals God created) to help them understand Bible truths and trigger Scripture memory. And Bible Memory Buddies help discoveries stick! (wink, wink)
“Teachers are Bible experts.”Teachers are channels of friendship that help children understand and experience Jesus’ love.Simply Loved uses human relationships to communicate God’s love in a tangible way. Built-in conversation starters help teachers share their personal stories and their own friendship with Jesus.
“Covering a lot of information is intimidating.”Reaching children is simple when you focus on one Bible Point.Simply Loved repeats key Bible Points in different ways so truths sink deep. And it combines the repetition of a Bible Point with an auditory and physical response that will stick with kids long after your lesson ends.
“Success requires getting through the whole lesson.”You’ll clearly communicate the key Bible Point no matter how far you get.With Simply Loved, a palette of Bible-point-supporting options give you the freedom to choose what works for your kids and your timeframe. So no matter how much of the lesson you complete, the Truth from God’s Word shines through.
“Kids’ll get bored if you repeat something they’ve heard before.”Kids appreciate routine and repetition when it’s done in a fun way.Simply Loved’s scope and sequence intentionally repeats the Bible verse and Point for four weeks. This strategically cements Bible learning no matter how often kids attend.

Not only will they hear a Bible story, they’ll experience it through Scripture reading, Bible Memory Buddy videos, and open-ended discussion questions that will help your kids build relationships, not just recite facts.

Reinforce kids’ discoveries with a game, experiment, or something new, and help them explore why the Bible Point matters in their everyday lives.

Plus, helpers don’t have to perform or prep these activities. They just participate along with the kids!

Fashion these Take-It-Home Flyers into a 3-D shape kids will be eager to show off at home.

We promise: These take-homes are actually taken home!
