      These demonstrations are designed to help you to become familiar with the lessons to prepare you to more effectively reach children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You will find links below to access the files that can be viewed at any time.  Due to the streaming audio presentation that will be used to deliver content, a dial-up connection is not suggested.

      One way that you can help the children know that what you’re teaching is true is by reading out of the Bible at least three times during the lesson. You’ll also want to teach that the Bible is the true Word of God. Make sure you draw the children into these lessons by acting out the stories and asking them engaging questions.
