Sunday School Curriculum in Local Languages
Generation Ministries, partnering with Sun Focus Foundation has translated, introduced and published complete sets of Sunday School curriculum teaching resources in four languages – Arabic, Vietnamese, Bangladeshi and Khmer. Over 70,000 “Grow Up with Jesus” (CBL) book/visual aid sets have been printed each containing 26 lessons for children aged 4 to 12. All in all, the curriculum offers 400 lessons for 8 years of Sunday school teaching. These curricula, usually being the only one of their kind in the local language, have been used by more than 2,200 churches in Egypt and hundreds of other churches in the Bangladesh, Cambodia and Vietnam. Grow up with Jesus has proven to be an effective and extremely useful resource that has helped thousands of Sunday School teachers to teach, disciple and guide children in many churches to Christ. The next language to be translated into is the Burmese language, where a complete set of Sunday school curriculum materials for the 4 to 14 year age group is not yet available.
