At home, school and in their communities, today's children face issues their parents and grandparents never faced. How do we prepare them to live, lead and serve in this demanding and often dangerous world?
BSF believes life's answers are found in the Bible — helping the next generation get to know and love God and His Word. That's why BSF offers Bible classes for school-age youth as part of women's and men's evening classes.
Taught by loving, well-trained and committed leaders in a secure environment, the BSF school program is a structured, engaging learning experience that challenges students to discover what Scripture means and how they can apply it to their lives.
Students investigate the same passages as adult class members, giving them the context and framework to have spiritual conversations outside of class. As in the preschool program, leaders pray for and encourage the students they teach.
You can download:
Home Training Lessons — a weekly article on godly child-rearing that correlates to the BSF lesson. (This is also available to the class materials table of BSF classes.)
Home Discussion Pages — a weekly synopsis of each day's lesson with two to three questions that can be discussed by the whole family or shared with others.
Typical school class
Worship — Students attend with their registered adults an opening worship time of singing.
Bible lesson — Children's leaders teach each week's Bible passages to help students understand God's Word.
Discussion questions (based on age) — Daily questions help guide children to how they can apply what they are learning to their daily lives.
Discovery time — Scripture-based learning games for the youngest and focused study of passages for the older students help the students discover that the Scripture has real meaning to them.
Basic truths — Students explore basic truths of the Christian faith.
Memory verse — Students commit to memory each week a Scripture verse from the week's study.
