Lesson Notes: Joshua through Elisha

These Bible stories are aimed at ages 6-9, and can be used as lesson notes for Bible school or at home.  Each story includes three illustrated pages and concludes with a life lesson or important teaching.  This series is part of an ongoing project (we hope to eventually cover all the major Bible stories with lessons that align with Christadelphian beliefs).  It’s still in a first draft phase, so although it is currently usable – if you have edits, feedback, or formatting suggestions, they will definitely be welcomed!


As a note, Children’s Bible Bulletins has activity pages to match all of these lessons except the last two Elisha lessons.  You can read a review of Children’s Bible Bulletins here.
