A Gospel-based Sunday School Curriculum for a Child’s Heart
The heart can be a source of malice and deceit, or it can be a God-given heart, made of flesh and alive with love for Jesus and one another. The goal of Hearts Alive non-denominational Sunday School curriculum is to introduce children to God through his Word with a strong overview of the story of salvation and how it ties to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This three-year course of study covers the entire Bible and mirrors the liturgical cycles of the Revised Common Lectionary (Cycles A, B, & C). Special emphasis is given to the Gospel and integrating God’s Word into a child’s faith and life.
“Above all guard your heart, for
everything you do flows from it.”

“Hearts Alive is the best curriculum I have ever used in my 30+ years of being in Children's Ministry. It keeps the children engaged and has enough variety that we can go to the next thing before losing their attention."
~Lynn Stover, Church of Our Saviour, Jacksonville, FL
“I love the curriculum! Very educational with a strong pedagogical element. I can tell educators have written it. It is more than just an arts and crafts class. It really gets into the Scriptures and is very well thought out. Kids are engaged.”
~ Jason Oden, Children’s Ministry Director, Trinity Episcopal, Covington, KY
“(I like that Hearts Alive is) easy to read and implement. The object of the lesson relates to the Scripture verses. Crafts and games are doable. There’s enough material to choose from.”
~ Nancy Harrell, Children’s Ministry Direction, Redemption Church, Frisco, TX
“I like the format of having a welcome activity, introduction, Scripture story/discussion, etc. Because you have provided so much content (this is a good thing) it allows us to pick what we think our students will like the best. It is clear that you have put a lot of effort into creating the lessons; they are well written and heartfelt... We teach for about 40-50 minutes each week, so the length of the lessons appealed to us. We are on a limited budget so the cost was a big factor. The PDF format is also nice because I can email the lessons to other teachers.”
~ Rob Frost, Formation Director, All Saints Episcopal, Hershey, PA
