Summer Sunday School Suggestions

With some students away and travelling this Summer, or with some churches cancelling Summer Sunday School or mid-week Bible classes for the Summer, you might consider this idea to help them keep up with the International Sunday School Lessons.

Give a handout each week that uses the Bulletin-sized Bible Lesson on one side (which has the Scripture text to read, the short Bible Lesson, and the five discussion questions) and on the other side put one of these three: Crossword Puzzle, True and False Test, Word Search Puzzle). When someone returns from a trip, you can give them the handouts they missed. These handouts can be folded to easily fit into a Bible.

If you are interested in learning what the upcoming Bible lessons will be through the end of August 2020, you can find them listed by quarter by going to the RESOURCES tab on the International Bible Lessons Commentary website.

Previous Bible Commentaries listed by Book of the Bible from June 2010 to the present can be found by going to the CONTENTS tab on the International Bible Lessons Commentary website.

If you have other Summer Suggestions or teaching ideas to share, please feel free to write your comments on the IBL Forum or send me an email directly to: and I will post them for you.

May God continue to bless your Bible study and teaching throughout the Summer and as you prepare for new classes in the Fall!
