Use these free programs to share the Gospel as you help new neighbors practice their English.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s (LCMS) Office of International Mission has developed three curricula sets for LCMS churches and groups that wish to lead Bible camps for children who do not speak English as their first language. The five-day downloadable sets share the Gospel while introducing participants to new vocabulary and Bible stories. Each set includes opening and closing devotions, English teaching materials, Bible study materials, music selections, games, crafts, student pages, take-home materials and teaching tips.

The curricula sets were originally designed for use by short-term overseas mission teams. But following the positive reception in these English Bible camps, the sets are now being made available as a free download for churches and groups that desire to serve newly arrived refugees and immigrants or teach other camps overseas.

“Jesus Frees Us”

This curriculum looks at five Bible stories from the Old Testament. Over the course of five days, participants will learn about how God cared for His people and how He continues to care for us today. Through Jesus Christ, we have been freed to forgive those who hurt us, to praise Him, to be merciful to others, to trust God and to live spiritually.

“God’s Gifts”

This curriculum uses stories from the Book of Acts to teach about God’s good gifts. Over the course of five days, the curriculum introduces five stories from Acts to teach participants about the gifts of the Holy Spirit, teachers, faith, joy and life.

“Jesus, Who Are You?”

This curriculum takes a look at the “I Am” statements of Jesus. Over five days, participants will hear stories from the Gospels where Jesus calls Himself the light of the world; the bread of life; the door and the Good Shepherd; the vine; and the resurrection and the life and the way, the truth and the life.
