Need a lesson plan for this week? Or a short series? Or an entire year’s worth of curriculum? I have written hundreds of lesson plans! I want to share them with you.
The lessons use the FIT outline (Fellowship Question, Information, Transformation) with three goals: that class members will leave a session knowing one another a little bit better, knowing a little more about the Bible and its teachings, and desiring to follow Jesus a little bit closer. These are lesson plans written for the Bible study leader (not the class member).

Seven Lenten/Easter Lesson Plans from Psalms
Thirteen Lesson Plans on Abraham and Sarah’s Growing Faith
This is a study of the seven conversations God had with Abram/Abraham. These conversations teach us how faith begins and grows. Ultimately, understanding these conversations will help us comprehend one of the most seemingly bizarre stories of the entire Bible: God telling Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. This series also includes stories of when Abraham and Sarah took backward steps in their faith journeys, reminding class members that “the best of us” sometimes struggle, rebel, or take matters into our own hands – and it doesn’t go well.
The Gospel of John
I offer four optional plans for studying John’s Gospel.
1. A series of lessons that will take your class members from John 1:1 to 21:25.
2. A series of lessons focusing on the seven “signs” that clarify the role of Jesus. Titles begin with *
3. A series of lessons focusing on the seven “I am” sayings that clarify the identity of Jesus. Titles begin with !
4. A series that may be used in the Lenten season.
I am adding lessons as I write and teach them. These are the completed lessons thus far.
Conflict and Clarification – John 5:16-47
*Fourth Sign – Jesus Feeds the Over-5000 – John 6:1-29
