CURRICULUM

The Praise Factory is a family of curricula created by Connie Dever, wife of Mark Dever, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC.  Teach, Take & Tell (for 2’s and 3’s); Big Questions and Answers for little people (for 3-5’s); and The Praise Factory (for K-5th grade) introduce the children to sixteen major biblical truths, common to a systematic theology.  As the children progress through the curricula, they learn about these truths in greater depth. The children learn Bible stories (and even church history and missionary stories in The Praise Factory grade school curriculum) that reflect these truths. A wide variety of songs, games, crafts and other activities are included, making learning understandable, memorable and fun!

Praise Factory resources can be used by churches, schools, home schools, Vacation Bible Schools, camps and families.

Having good curriculum is only part of the equation; finding it and implementing it also have to be considered as well as teacher training in both curriculum and classroom management.  Here are some helpful hints as you think through these factors:

BIBLE MEMORY

 “I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against you” (Psalm 119:11). Read over our 6 year Bible Memory Program designed to help our CHBC Kids hide God’s Word in their hearts. The program was designed for children but provides a good basis for a Bible memory plan for adults as well.

BOOK & BIBLE RESOURCES

Shepherding children comes with it's own challenges and opportunities for parents and teachers.  There are a wide variety of resources and materials that help in this rewarding yet daunting task.  Here is a list of resources we've found helpful, how they are used and where you can find them.

RESOURCES FOR KIDS IN WORSHIP SERVICES

Helping children participate in worship services is a key goal of ours and of many churches and families.  Some resources that aid in this are service bulletins for children and Youth.  We have learned and borrowed from other churches as well as creating our own, tailored to the kids & families in our congregation.  Here are some samples of what we've made, borrowed and used or heard from others that have used these resources.

  • CHBC Children's Bulletin (adapted from Green Run Baptist Church in Virginia Beach)
  • CHBC Youth Bulletin (developed by our Pastor for Families)
