Easy to recruit & keep volunteers
You'll find it easier to recruit and retain volunteers because they don't need to spend time gathering supplies or prepping for the lesson. They just open the box and go! The only thing your volunteers need to do each week is to prepare their hearts.
Kids connect with every lesson
Kids learn in different ways. Every lesson with Buzz provides a unique learning experience using 4-5 of the 8 multiple intelligences. Kids will understand and remember the lesson topics better because they will be engaged in experiences in which they feel gifted.
Kids stay fully engaged & learn more
With Buzz, each lesson is intentionally designed to allow kids to choose which direction the lesson goes. Kids are fully engaged because they are choosing what

How It Works
Buzz reinvents Sunday school
With Buzz, you'll reinvent the Sunday school experience at your church! Using unique game-like activities, lessons are packed with fun, surprise, and kid participation. Kids even get to choose what activity comes next as the lesson unfolds, and they never get bored because they never quite know what’s coming next.
Here's how a typical lesson looks:
Teach kids uncommon Bible stories
Buzz Sunday school is designed to work best in churches that divide kids into age-graded classrooms with 10 or less kids per class. Each grade level (preschool through 6th) has a unique theme every quarter that teaches a mix of classic and uncommon Bible stories that kids haven't heard before–which impacts their faith and changes their lives.

The Buzz difference
Buzz Sunday school is totally different from anything you've tried before. Teaching is as easy as playing a game, so even new volunteers or last-minute substitutes can lead an effective Bible lesson.
Here are a few more reasons you'll love Buzz:
Everything's In The Box
With Buzz, there are no student books or additional purchases for students required. There's no need to run errands looking for supplies or props because everything you need to teach a lesson is in the box!
No Teacher Guides
Buzz uses a game-like Quick Start Guide instead of a bulky teacher guide. Teachers and volunteers feel like a success every week because they don't have to worry about lesson prep, and the simple instructions enable them to walk through the lesson easily.
The Buzz Leader Devotions helps your volunteers prepare their hearts each week. Instead of looking for supplies, leaders develop their passion for ministry where they can concentrate on the meaning of every lesson and pray for their students.
Buzz uses Smart Learning for each and every lesson. Kids remember the Bible lesson because Smart helps them to learn and understand the Bible in the ways that they learn best.
Uncommon Bible Stories
Buzz incorporates lesser-known passages from the Bible using fun and memorable themes. You'll expose kids to more of God's Word in ways they won't forget
Faith Buzz at Home
Faith Buzz at Home brings the fun and learning from Sunday school home. Parents help build faith at home because they are equipped to reinforce what kids learn every week, long after the Sunday school lesson has ended.
Digital copies of Leader Devotions make it even easier for teachers to prepare their hearts
Give teachers and volunteers direct access to the Bible Background to help them feel prepared for the weekly lesson topic. Plus, they get a God Sightings® weekly reflection activity and prayer starters so they can prepare their hearts for ministry.
View lessons on your phone or tablet. You get free access to downloadable content with the purchase of your quarterly kit.
Q: What Bible translation is used in Buzz?
A: Lesson materials reference the New Living Translation of the Bible. The NLT was developed to be easy for children to read and understand, while still remaining faithful to the meanings of words and phrases presented in the original texts. For more info, see http://www.newlivingtranslation.com/05discoverthenlt/nltintro.asp.
Q: How many lessons are included in each quarter?
A: Each quarter includes 13 lessons.
Q: Does Buzz include any music or video media?
A: Each Buzz Kit (for Preschool through 6th Grade) includes an audio CD with music, sound effects, and audio dramas used with each lesson. No video content is provided.
Q: Is everything really in the box? I don’t need anything else?
A: Some activities require standard classroom supplies: Bibles, CD player, tape, pencils, crayons, glue, scissors, or paper. We’ve worked hard to make this a self-contained program so your volunteers can just open the box and go. There will never be any supplies required besides those listed above and those included in the kit.
Q: Is there a take-home paper?
A: No, but each week you’ll get 10 reproducible “Faith Buzz at Home Cards” (provided in the kit) that kids can take home and use in creative ways during the week to reinforce what they’ve learned.
