The LOST SHEEP Bible Game

"Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, `Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.' I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent" Luke 15:4-7.

Discussion
Who is the Shepherd? (Jesus)
Who is the Lost Sheep? (A person who doesn't follow Jesus.)*
Who are the other sheep? (People who already follow Jesus.)

Object 
One player, the "sheep," will draw arrows using chalk to give clues as to where he or she can be found by the "shepherd," the rest of the players. (You might decide to have two players to be the sheep.)

How To Play 
The sheep are given a head start, (2-5 minutes-decide time before playing). At the go, the sheep . . .

Hook Em’ Bible Memorization

Setting the hook is a fishing term that means getting a hook down deep in a fish’s mouth; this way you don’t lose it in the fight when reeling it in. Ultimately, that’s what Bible memorization is all about: setting Jesus’ hook down deep into the lives of our kids, and helping them to obey the imperative of Psalm 119:11, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

The following two sample games are from
Bible Games Explosion

Popcorn ---------------- inactive

Repeat the memory verse together with the class several times. Players kneel in a squatting position—the popcorn position. To begin, teacher points to a player, who then pops up on his or her knees and says the first word of the memory verse. Teacher points to another player, who pops up to say the next word. Play continues as such with teacher pointing and players popping up until the verse is stated. During play, if a player doesn’t know a word, teacher passes to another player. 

Bonk ----------------- active

Players stand in a circle. At the go teacher tosses a ball to a player who must then say the first word of the memory verse, then pass the object clockwise to the next player, who must say the next word, and so on until the verse is stated. However, if a player doesn’t know a word, he or she must say, “Bonk,” at which time the object reverses order and play proceeds until a player doesn’t know the next word, whereupon the object reverses direction again. Continue until verse is stated.

Your products are excellent. We have purchased several for our Kids Church and been delighted with every one . . . the Lighthouse was brilliant! ~ Margaret J., Australia.

You have fantastic resources. My favorite is your lessons on the 10 Commandments. Although I taught it sometime ago, the kids still use the hand signals. Keep up the good work. ~ Frances Kemp

I am so thankful for finding your site. I teach, but need lots of help and ideas. I so want to teach these little ones so they know Jesus as Savior. Thank you so very much!
~ Carol W.

I was intrigued with the Amazing Parable Race description [and purchased it]. It allows me to add another resource to my "bag of tricks" for very little additional cost . . . huge plus! I have many of your resources and appreciate the quality of the materials you provide. For a broadly graded class, I find I can easily reach the youngest and the oldest (Preschool through 5th grade) children. Thank you! 
~ Lauren F.

We used the Parables of Jesus as a starting point for our neighborhood kids Bible study and adapted the lessons to suit our needs. The lessons provided fun and easy ways to teach the parables. ~ Michle

We have a very small church (28 to 30 people total on average) and it is hard to find programs to do for VBS. So when I went looking for something that I could do with a group of kids, the Prayer of Jesus stood out. There are six, two-hour lessons and we did a lesson a day. The book has game and craft ideas to go with each lesson. . . . I am already looking into buying more books from Sunday School Network. I feel that learning to pray together as a group, a family, we have grown even closer to God.
Thank you, ~ April G.

Super Heroes of the Bible

Super heroes are people of honor; they are courageous, or brave. They are people with integrity, having good reputations. People of honor know right from wrong and choose to do right. People think well of them and say good things about them. We respect them and hold them in high regard. 

Sometimes heroes are famous, and sometimes they aren’t. But the one characteristic that makes super heroes different from other people is that they have willing hearts to do a special task to rescue others. They put other people before themselves, and sometimes endanger their own lives!

God loves us and gives us the privilege to work with him . . . All it takes is a willing heart, ready to obey him! Super Heroes of the Bible looks at the lives of men and women, and boys and girls, and some famous and not-so famous people from the Bible, who had willing hearts to obey God. And by obeying him, they were used in miraculous and powerful ways to help change the course of history!

The folks at Sunday School Network are a pleasure to work with; I highly recommend them. . . Sunday School Network is a company you can trust. ~ Glen B.

Thank you for your ideas and your website.
~ Lynn Rhodes

I just want to say that I am very thankful for this site. I have
found a lot of neat ideas for Sunday school and youth group ~ Kim 

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of  ideas to use. I prayed that God would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright!  This website!  I was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out. What a wonderful site!  I love it!  It has such great ideas.  Thank you so much!  ~ Another sister in Christ,
Mable D.
