How To Use SEED
For the Summer of 2023
Nine-Session Summer Series: "Family of Faith"
For use by congregations (or families) throughout the summer months of 2022, Sola has provided an abbreviated nine-session intergenerational series for use with children of all ages. Click the blue link above.
New for 2023-2024:
Weekly Story Poster Pages
Beginning in 2023, Sola will be making available PDF "Poster Pages" -- downloadable from the Weekly Lesson webpages. Each file features four sequential pictures meant to be shown as the Bible story for the day is read. Formatting to a horizontal 8.5 x 11" size (but able to be enlarged), congregations with color printing capability may choose to print hard copies of these posters for the classroom. More economically, most teachers will want to simply display these pictures one-by-one on a laptop or computer screen.
In this section you will find information for teachers and coordinators on how to organize an education program, including class schedules, outlines, and programmatic resources, provided to help teachers and other education leaders in their calling to communicate the Word of God.

Using SEED as a Lectionary
Using the Suggested Sunday Calendar (above), some congregations have chosen to use the lessons from SEED as the schedule of readings for their Sunday worship services, taking a break from the traditional lectionary for part of the year.
To help facilitate the use of the SEED lessons in worship, Sola has provided weekly Scripture Inserts that feature the Bible texts from each's week's Sunday School Lesson, along with a prayer for the day. (These are found on the individual weekly pages.)
