LifeWay Offers Free, Online Sunday School Program for Children as Churches Close Due to Coronavirus Outbreak

The Southern Baptist Convention’s publishing arm, Lifeway Christian Resources, is offering a free, in-home children’s Bible study program available to churches of all kinds that have postponed their services due to the coronavirus outbreak. 

As many churches across the United States have suspended live events and moved worship services online to help containing the outbreak of COVID-19, LifeWay responded to the need for the continuation of children’s ministry by creating a temporary free resource called “LifeWay Kids at Home.”

The Digital Pass experience offers parents and their children a Sunday school-like alternative that will provide weekly media-driven kids’ Bible study at home.

“LifeWay Kids at Home” includes a conversation guide, a series of videos that focus on the Bible story, life application and missions.

“The provided content is taken from current-cycle material in LifeWay’s ‘Bible Studies for Life: Kids’ broadly graded curriculum for 1-6th graders,” the announcement from LifeWay reads. “Churches using this curriculum will be able to remain on their teaching schedule. However, the ‘LifeWay Kids at Home’ Digital Pass experience is available to any church, of any denomination, anywhere in the world.”

Each Thursday night, new sessions will be updated with fresh content.

Churches will be able to access “LifeWay Kids at Home” anytime over the next 12 weeks through the end of the Spring quarter, according to the announcement.
