Come Adventure With Us
Praise Factory Investigators is almost as new to you as it is to us. It has been being used for the past couple of years already and is nearing the end of this phase. We offer the curriculum to you now, if you want to adventure alongside of us through any extra bumps and blips that are inevitable on a maiden voyage. Or, feel free to wait until we make the first crossing and learn from the experience. It’s totally up to you. We will update the curriculum with edits as needed.
1. This is the Works:
This section contains FULL DOWNLOADS of ENTIRE UNITS of curriculum. Looking for just a story or a particular, single resource? Go to Praise Factory Investigators Bits and Pieces.
Few other churches choose to use all of the curriculum as we use it at Capitol Hill Baptist Church, because we have created enough curriculum to last at least 1.5 hours and split the kids up into 7 small groups, each doing a different activity each session. You may feel overwhelmed looking at our lesson plan. Here are some tips that will really help you fit our curriculum to your needs.
2. Take the Tour:
Look at this section from the Praise Factory Curriculum Tour to get a good sense of what is offered in this curriculum and how it is structured, were you to use it as the lesson plans suggest (structure of every class is the same… learn it, once and you’ve got it down.)

3. Use Bits and Pieces Instead:
I would strongly encourage you to choose Bits and Pieces a la carte downloads instead of these full curriculum downloads. Bits and Pieces allows you to download just what you need. If for some reason you find you want to use most of the curriculum as ordered in our lesson plan, then these full unit downloads may be useful to you. Bits and Pieces has instructions about how to helpfully choose what you need. I would suggest looking at that first. Go to Praise Factory Investigators Bits and Pieces.

Future Units, Hopefully a Few More
Due to the after-effects of cancer upon me, it looks like I’m not going to be able to finish all of Praise Factory Investigators. I am hoping to write Theme 9 (Jesus) which has 13 Bible Truths, 39 sessions of curriculum, and Theme 15 (The Church), 10 Bible Truths, 30 sessions of curriculum. And that’s probably it. I’m sad to not be able to finish my original idea for the curriculum, but so grateful that God is sovereign. I will accept His limits that now are so clear about this portion of my life.
The other great news is that there is tons of other fabulous curriculum on the market,. And remember, you don’t have to use any of the Praise Factory units in order, so it doesn’t matter if the next unit isn’t ready yet. We’ve been doing it for years and still bearing great fruit among our children at Capitol Hill Baptist.
