From veteran youth volunteer and professional architect Gregg Alan Jones comes a new concept in middle school and high school lesson plans: Sunday Comics. These fill-in-the-blank and color-as-inspired comic pages are coupled with detailed lesson plans any youth leader can optimize for their group. Each lesson plan contains a key verse, an appropriate “Lead-In” to introduce the lesson, Scripture to be read aloud, background for the leader (which can double as a script if needed), key questions for light-bulb moments (“BAM! I Got That!”), a way to close out the meeting, related Scripture references, and—of course—answers to the blanks on the comic pages.
The first installment of this exciting Sunday Comics curriculum—Volume 1: Prophets, Priests, and Kings—covers Judges through Daniel and contains 50 lesson plans, 50 comic pages, and 4 blueprints depicting Solomon’s Temple (available on both PowerPoint and PDF).
