Bible Studies

How can I find the specific lesson titles or topics for your elective Bible studies?
>Many of the Adult and Senior High Bible studies include the Table of Contents. When viewing the Teacher’s or Leader’s Guide description, click on “View More Images” or “Download Intro PDF”.

Is there a leader’s guide available for the men’s and women’s Bible study books?
>No separate leaders’ guides are available for these studies. The women’s studies have a leader’s guide in the back of each book; the men’s studies do not.


Customer Service


Why can’t I buy one student book and copy it for my class?
>Bottom line: because to photocopy copyrighted material is illegal. We try to keep the price of our materials as affordable as possible. In order to continue to fund the ministry of Regular Baptist Press and the development of new products, we have to sell materials. All of our products are protected by the U.S. Copyright Law. They cannot be reproduced in any form, including electronic retrieval, without permission from the publisher. Not only is copying illegal, it also compromises the quality of the product. Most of the time, copies are made in black and white. All of our student materials are in color. What does it say to the student if he or she is handed a black and white copy? Is Sunday School less important than school, for instance, where top-quality products are used? Furthermore, some departments have seals that go with the handwork pages. Students have to do without these if copies are made. Sometimes a church will call in week 11 or 12 of a quarter and request permission to copy because a new student or two have joined a class. In such situations, we almost always grant permission. But you must call first. Copying without permission is illegal! You will find our Copyright statement HERE.

May I sign up to receive my orders automatically every quarter?
> No, not at the present time.

Is your material available in large print?

If you absolutely must have something that is not on the current order blank and we give you permission to make copies, we will ask you to pay for those copies.

Sunday School Back to top

Where can I find samples of your Sunday School curriculum?
>You can download, view, and print PDF samples of our curriculum. Click HERE for a video tutorial (2:47).

What is Planting Faith?
>Planting Faith-Planting the seeds of faith in early childhood! is the name of our new early childhood Sunday School curriculum. Click HERE to find out more.

What is different about Planting Faith?
>Planting Faith offers teachers interactive teaching methods, new teaching visuals and resources, and a fresh new look to all products. The curriculum will be a two-year cycle for each age group.

Will the Pre-Primary Department continue to be a three-year curriculum cycle?
>No, it will be a two-year cycle. For the most part, children are in each department for only two years. In two-year age spans the children share more common educational abilities, and this similarity provides an enhanced teaching-learning environment.

Which department should six-year-olds who are in kindergarten attend?
>The Pre-Primary Department. These children will be in the Pre-Primary Department for three years. They will repeat one year of the curriculum. But because we offer graded student books, you will be able to use book 2 with these students (as well as with five-year-olds who are in kindergarten).

Do I need all new materials for Planting Faith?

>Yes, you do. While much of the lesson subject matter remains the same, everything else has changed. You will not be able to use previously published teacher’s book, for instance, with the new handwork books. The lessons will not match. Neither will you be able to use the previously published teaching packet with a new teacher’s book. The teaching resources have all changed.

What is Growing Faith?
>Growing Faith—Encouraging kids to grow in their faith! is the name of our new children’s Sunday School curriculum. Click HERE to find out more.

What is the Middler Department?
>Our Middler Department is designed for students in grades 3 and 4.

Will the Primary and Junior Departments continue to be based on a three-year curriculum cycle?
>No, they will each be a two-year cycle. Growing Faith (the elementary curriculum to be introduced for the Fall Quarter 2008) will all be two-year cycles. In two-year age spans the children share more common educational abilities, and this similarity provides an enhanced teaching-learning environment.

I am teaching a Senior High class, should I purchase the Student Book or the In-Depth Study for my students?
>Newer senior high courses offer a student devotional book. The book includes a daily devotional plan that prepares the student for the upcoming in-class lesson. The student book also includes in-class worksheets, prayer requests, journaling, and relevant articles. Older senior high courses offer the In-depth Study Guide in place of a student book. Order for your students the product that is available for the course you are teaching.

Why does RBP recommend a fall promotion of Sunday School students to the next age group?
>We recommend fall—not spring—for three reasons:
(1) The curriculum is based on a September—August Sunday School year. Sunday School promotion belongs at the beginning of a new year. (Note that school students move to their grade level in the fall, at the start of the school year.)

(2) The first quarter in a new class or department often sets the pace for the year ahead. It is hard to achieve this in the summer quarter. Teachers and students alike are away for vacation, camp, or other activities.

(3) The curriculum is based on a September—August Sunday School year. In the three departments with graded material, the easiest quarter is fall; the most difficult is summer. Students who start a new class or department in the summer quarter often find the material too difficult. Do all you can to make the summer quarter a vital one in your Sunday School and build enthusiasm for Promotion Day (ideally the last Sunday of August) and the start of a new Sunday School year.
