A SAMPLE YEAR-LONG TEACHING CALENDAR

Forward Banner

Earlier in the year I posted, “The Power of a Teaching Calendar.” In that post I talked about the power of having a consistent teaching calendar. In this post, I am listing an actual teaching calendar that was created by Pastor David McCool and myself. We are now in September, so teachers, and pastors are starting to think about 2015. Now is a good time to start creating your teaching/ preaching calendar for next year. Remember the more work you do right now, will create more liberty for you to better prepare your messages later. This teaching schedule is created into four quarters. Each quarter has a subheading of the main theme. We created banners for each one of the sub themes and had them displayed in the auditorium. The images of the banners are displayed below. Feel free to use the rhythm and flow of this teaching calendar.
