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 the link under the “Samples” tab to view the Table of Contents.

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.

May I sign up to receive my orders automatically every quarter?
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.

The King James Version (KJV) is available for all of our Sunday School and Vacation Bible School curriculum. We also offer the 2s and 3s through Junior Departments in the New King James Version.

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).

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.
