Verse Sets

Fighter Verses

The Fighter Verses focus on the character and worth of our great God, battling against our fleshly desires, and the hope of the Gospel. This five-year memory program features essential verses every believer need to know in order to fight the fight of faith.

Extended Memory Set

The Extended Memory Set is designed for those who wish to memorize longer passages of Scripture. Still structured as a five-year program, this set will walk you through memorizing Philippians, James, Romans 5-8, the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), and one year of larger passages from various books of the Bible that are considered key to the life of faith.

Foundation Verses

Foundation Verses are strategically chosen Bible verses for children ages 2-5. The set includes verses designed to lay a firm scriptural foundation of basic Biblical truth that will pave the way for faith response along with illustrations to help children remember each verse.
