The NCC Volume 1: God, Creation, Fall, Law


The New City Catechism Curriculum features fifty-two engaging lessons developed from the questions and answers of The New City Catechism. Volume 1 covers questions 1—20 and focuses on God, Creation & the Fall and the Law. The curriculum is aimed at children ages eight through eleven, and is designed to be used in a wide variety of contexts—Sunday school, home school, Christian school, or after-school clubs. The catechism will be most effective if it is concurrently taught in the local church and in the context of the family.
