Bible Stories for Kids - Top 50 List

Bible Stories For Kids

Description of how this list was chosen: Based on Google searches and overall popularity of the story, we created the following list. Let it be known that the order of this list in no way conveys a story’s importance. We also left some stories out of the list that may not necessarily be kid-friendly. We used lessons from our own curriculum and even lessons from other companies, churches, non-profits, and blogs to compile this list. The purpose of this list is to provide children's pastors, directors, teachers, parents, and volunteers with a comprehensive list of Bible stories that every kid should learn. Each Bible story is linked to a fun, easy, and exciting lesson that anyone can teach. Every lesson is very kid-friendly, and honestly, a ton of fun to teach. Be sure to check out every lesson because there may be one you have not taught in your Children's Ministry, Sunday School, or Kids Church yet!
