The popular Lesson Plans That Work, an online resource from the Episcopal Church, has been updated and revised, now with three distinct tracts for younger and older children, and adults.
“Lesson Plans That Work is utilized by many throughout the Episcopal Church and beyond,” noted Ruth-Ann Collins, Officer for Lifelong Christian Formation. “In response to our many users, we have given Lesson Plans That Work a new look and new resources.”
Published by the Episcopal Church and written by experienced church school teachers, Lesson Plans That Work follow the Revised Common Lectionary, using practical approaches to respond to the needs of volunteer teachers.
Lesson Plans That Work consists of three lesson plans presented weekly: for young children, for older children, and for adults.
On the web, Lesson Plans That Work is easy to search by Season, Year A, B, or C, and by age. Also newly added is a “Useful Links” section providing additional formation resources.
