Immerse & LifeLINKS Curriculums for 2021-22
To say that the past year has been a challenge would indeed be an understatement. Many churches saw little to no activity for much of the past year, especially in Bible classes. While Bible studies have been well underway for some congregations, others are just now resuming their class times. Yet for some, the challenge still remains.
The past year has also been challenging for us here at 21st Century Christian as well as many other Christian publishers and bookstores. Some are scraping by on reduced schedules while others have had no alternative but to close.
As the publisher of the much-loved Immerse in His Word and LifeLINKS to God Bible school curriculums, 21st Century Christian is faced with a dilemma. Both of these curriculums are well-known for being fresh and new each quarter, incorporating new lesson activities each year based on recent events which help to more effectively connect the Word of God in a relational manner to today's children, teens, and adults alike.
Under normal circumstances, just enough materials are produced each quarter each year to supply the needs of churches around the world for that specific time period, since new materials would be produced for the same quarter the following year. However, the past 12+ months have been anything but normal, and that has resulted in the bulk of the 2020-21 Immerse and LifeLINKS materials still being in inventory because so few congregations have been able to hold Bible classes during that time.
As a result, for the Summer 2021, Fall 2021, Winter 2021-22, and Spring 2022 quarters, the Immerse in His Word and LifeLINKS to God curriculums will actually be the materials which were produced for the 2020-21 season. The Scope and Sequence schedules for both curriculum lines have been updated to reflect this change.
Many challenges still lie ahead. As the saying goes, "We're not out of the woods just yet." However, your brothers and sisters in Christ here at 21st Century Christian want you to know that we are doing everything we can to help you through these difficult times. And, we need you as well. Let us all continue to pray for one another, love one another, and support one another through these difficult times. With God's help and guidance, we will all get through this together, and all to the glory of our Heavenly Father.
