Faith Reformed Baptist Church Sunday School Curriculum Project
What is it?
In 1982, after many years of struggling to find Sunday School materials that were both substantial in biblical content and doctrinally compatible with the confessional position of our church, the elders of Faith Reformed Baptist Church in Media, PA decided to undertake the massive project of preparing our own, with the hope that it would be useful to others who faced the same dilemma. Our goal was to prepare a cyclical Sunday School curriculum for use by Calvinistic Baptist churches for children and young people from age 4 through high school. Largely through word-of-mouth publicity and this website, we have received orders for all or part of the curriculum from more than 275 other churches around the country and overseas. At the request of some of the churches using the material, I have also made available a number of my adult Sunday School courses for those who are interested.

How much does the curriculum cost?
The material is available in electronic form only at the cost of $30 per quarter per grade level (adult, children and youth, and the VBS programs). Electronic files are in .pdf format. Those who purchase the lessons may duplicate them as necessary for their own use (we would appreciate it if you wouldn’t make copies and pass them around to other churches, of course). Since the lessons are cyclical, it is not necessary to purchase new materials every year.
How do I order lesson materials?
Our lesson materials are available for order from this website (see tab above for “Purchase Sunday School Curriculum”). You may pay through Paypal and download the lessons immediately after payment. Please send me an e-mail including your name, the church’s name, address, phone number and e-mail address for my records.
