4 Step Lessons

These easy-to-teach lessons are broken into Life Connection, Bible Exploration, Bible Interaction, and Life Response. These steps make it easy for teachers (especially substitutes) to quickly grasp and teach.

Culturally Relevant

For nearly 30 years, Echoes has been one of the most widely used resources in the African-American Church, featuring culturally relevant topics and African-American imagery for today’s adults.

Life Application Focus

Echoes promotes community among other adults, and challenges them to continue growing spiritually, pushing them to apply every lesson to their own lives in a meaningful way.

Uniform Series / ISSL

The scope and sequence of Echoes follows the Uniform Series / ISSL scope and sequence. This way, your adult Sunday school will follow the same topics as your pastor from week to week.

Dual NIV and KJV

Echoes prints the NIV and KJV Scripture translation texts side by side for easy comparison.

Superintendent’s Handbook

The Sunday School Superintendent’s Handbook provides multi-grade material to open and close the Sunday school hour. The handbook ensures that, while each Echoes class is age-appropriate, children, youth, and adults focus on the same Bible principle and experience biblical discipleship that connects with life.

Teacher’s Commentary

Teacher helps, suggested answers, and additional Bible commentary to accompany Comprehensive Bible Study. Also includes Highlights in Black History, introductions to each lesson, and a reduction of CBS so the teacher can follow the students easily.
