Everyday thousands of readers visit our website for free lesson plans for their children’s ministry. One of my favorite things is to give away all our resources 100% free and without charge. But we’re not the only place to find this kind of help. From time-to-time, I’ve shared links to those type of resources.
Another great way to find free curriculum is to “sample” all the excellent paid materials available. That’s much easier on web-based sites. For example, our friends at Children’s Ministry Deals launch new Children’s Ministry curriculum series’ every month, and they always make the first lesson free for anyone to download. This includes their holiday themed lessons every year for free, and they’re always offering entire curriculum series’ for free as a way to say thanks to the people who visit their website. Jump over to their website to check it out.
- This is the page where you’ll find all they’re most popular free Children’s Ministry curriculum.
I’ve used and reviewed their curriculum for years in my own children’s ministry. They have also been a great supporter of our website as a regular sponsor (helping up keep everything free here on Ministry-To-Children). If you’re familiar with them, you know they’re the most generous company you’ll find serving in Children’s Ministry.
