    I do not like the new format of the Kdg teaching materials. Please change back to the previous version where the lessons are dated

      Here is a response from Jeff Land, Team Leader for Bible Studies For Life: Kids.

      Hi Emma Lou,

      I am sorry that you don’t like the new format. Can you tell me specifically what you are not liking? It could be that we have moved something, but that it is still there, because we tried to keep all of the same elements. I would love to help. Just let me know what you are missing and I’ll see what I can do. Thanks for the feedback.

  2. Nancy Clevenger says:

    I would agree with the request to please date the lessons. Many of our teachers teach on a rotating basis, not every Sunday, and it’s next to impossible to keep up with the correct lesson. Also, we have some classes that meet just on the 2nd and 4th Sunday, and it’s really hard to know which lesson is intended for that paticular Sunday.

      From Jeff Land, Team Leader for Bible Studies for Life: Kids:

      Hi Nancy,

      Your wish is our command! We are adding the dates back on the Table of Contents for Spring 2014. However, in the kids leader guides, the dates have always been there. Check out page 98 and you will find the suggested use dates. Thanks for your comments! They help us to know what changes we are making that are correct!
