GO! Curriculum FAQ

How far in advance will GO! Curriculum lessons be available?
We know that some of you are finishing up your shopping for Christmas 2029. Others of you just finished Christmas shopping for 1998!
Regardless of how far ahead you plan your Sunday School lessons, we want to give you ample time to prepare. Although the lessons can be used at any time during the year, GO! works best when you follow the curriculum calendar. The lesson documents for each unit will be made available for download beginning 2 months in advance of its “use” date on the calendar. This will give you between 2-3 months to plan ahead.
The “Journey Today Show” and “Topher Time” teaching videos are available 1 month in advance and added to the download folder as they are finalized.
Units are removed from the Dashboard 1 month after their “use” date. Be sure to download ahead of time if you are not following the curriculum calendar.
Do the preschool and elementary scope and sequences line up with each other?

The preschool scope and sequence generally follows the elementary scope and sequence (same section of the Bible at the same time), but it will go at a pace that is more age-appropriate for preschoolers. Sometimes the stories will be the same, but sometimes they are different. You can read more about our approach here.

What ages are recommend for the preschool and elementary curriculum?
The preschool curriculum is written with ages 3-5 in mind, although some churches modify it to use with 2-year-olds. It’s also not too young to use with Kindergartners.
The elementary curriculum is written with Kindergarten through 5th graders in mind. Some churches even use it successfully with 6th graders.

Can I begin using GO! in the middle of the year or should I wait until August when the "Big Bible Story" begins?
There is no bad time to begin using GO! The GO! scope and sequence begins with Genesis in the month of August and works its way through the Bible over the course of the ministry year.


If you join mid-story, though, GO! has you covered. The first lesson of every elementary-aged unit has a “Big Bible Story” recap to help kids who are just joining understand the story from the beginning. It also serves as a reminder for the kids who’ve been with the story the entire time.
Will my subscription to GO! be renewed automatically?

Yes. When you purchase a subscription to GO! Curriculum, you agree to automatically be charged at the end of your subscription renewal date unless you cancel before your subscription date. It is easy to cancel your subscription in your account or email

Is there an additional charge to receive the GO! lessons in a customizable format?

No way! We place a high value on giving you the final say on Sunday School lessons. We therefore only offer lessons as customizable Microsoft Word documents.

What is the "Blank Slide" in the Resource Folder for?

Not only do we want you to have customizable kid’s church lessons, we want to give you the ability to add your own matching slides. The “Blank Slide” has the same design elements from the other unit slides, but without the words so that you can make it say whatever you want. We even include the name of the font used for each series in the file name so that you can make your slides match seamlessly with the ones provided.

My dog ate my lesson. Can I download it again?
Did your dog eat the electronic file too?


Umm… yes he did.


That’s strange! But yes—you can download the lessons as many times as you need for as long as they’re available. Old units will be removed as soon as the next unit becomes available.
After purchasing GO! for 3 years, can I cancel my subscription and just reuse the old lessons?

The GO! user agreement specifies that lessons be used within one consecutive 12-month period. GO! lessons are being updated and made more relevant for kids during each cycle.

Is there any financial assistance for churches who can’t afford the subscription price?

We don’t want GO! to be cost prohibitive for anyone! If for some reason, your church or ministry cannot afford the subscription price for GO!, we’re happy to work with you. Give us a call at 1-800-684-2302.

How far in advance will GO! preschool and elementary lessons be available for download?

All of the GO! lessons and media (not including the “Journey Today Show” and Topher Time”) will be available for download 2 months in advance of their suggested use date (as stated in the scope and sequence).

How far in advance will the Journey Today Show and Topher Time videos be available for download?

JTS and Topher Time videos will be available 1 month in advance of their suggested use date (as stated in the scope and sequence).

Can I post the Journey Today Show or Topher Time videos on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook or similar?
If you use YouTube, Vimeo or similar, you may only upload the video as “unlisted” and email the direct link to the families of your church.


In the case of Facebook or other social media platforms, you may not upload or link to a copyrighted video or Home Video Portal page on a public page. Instead, create a private group and invite families to join. The video and downloaded materials should be accessible to the families of your church, but not to the general public.


How can I share the Journey Today Show and Topher Time videos with the families of my church at home?

We’ve built a web-based platform for this exact purpose. If you’ve subscribed to a package that includes JTS or Topher Time, login to your Account Dashboard, then click on “Subscription Account” in the upper right-hand corner. At the top of the Subscription Account page, you’ll see a link to the video platform that is unique to your church. 


Please be careful when sharing the web address  that it’s not done on a public website or public Facebook page. 


With that said, it’s our desire that you are able to share these video resources with as many people in your church community as possible. Please share the links with anyone you would normally reach with your church program.


How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

In 1988, a New York fish and wildlife technician named Richard Thomas calculated that on a good day, with the wind at his back, a woodchuck could chuck about 700 lbs of wood (that is…if a woodchuck could chuck wood, which it can’t—so it’s irrelevant).

Does that previous question really get asked frequently?

It depends. If by “frequently,” you mean “never,” then yes–it’s one of the most frequently asked questions.
