Tending the Garden of Our Hearts‘ Sunday School is back in session as we Journey Through the Parables together.
The lessons open with an Introduction, which we invite you to read before you get started. There, you’ll find information on the Journey Through the Parables: Expedition Log Book. Every lesson will include a special page for this book, so that by the end of the year, your kids will have a whole book of Parables to keep.

It’s everything you need for Sunday school class, or for a weekly family lesson!
While we previously released our recorded podcast of lessons on Saturdays, we’ll now be moving that up to Thursdays, to give Sunday school teachers some time to prepare. We plan to send out the written lessons with activity sheets even earlier — our hope is to complete each month’s lessons before the month begins. If you’d like to be on the list to be notified when new lessons are released, please use the contact form or subscribe to this page’s blog so that we can include you!
We are following this school year calendar for 2020-2021:
We’ve also launched a Facebook group where parents and teachers can gather to ask questions, discuss challenges, and crowdsource ideas and inspiration!
You’ll find our Virtual Sunday School lessons from Spring of 2020 in our archives.
