Hi, let me introduce myself. I’m Google® I can do all kinds of stuff for you.
I can find a restaurant, tell you the address, phone number, and show menus.
I can find locations of friends and family.
I can tell you what is showing at the movies.
I can give you directions.
I can help you answer trivia questions.
I can find addresses and phone numbers for people and businesses.
I can help with homework, solve problems, and help with spelling.
I hold a wealth of information! That’s why I’m called the electronic information highway!
Aren’t I special?
I can even help with Bible information. Ask me a question about the prophets or anything – I have the answer.
Here are some examples, (click the links to see for yourself): Romans
3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans
6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
So you see, I am important! However, there is something you need that I can’t do!

Adam & Eve Skit
the beginning, there was only Adam and Eve, they were both created by God.
Adam first, then Eve from the rib of Adam, while he was napping. Adam and Eve
were fortunate; they were given the opportunity to live in the Garden of Eden.
Can you imagine living in garden created by God? Can you really imagine if
there was only one rule to obey instead of trying to keep all ten of the
commandments? Yep, that’s right. Not only did Adam and Eve have the perfect
place to live and work, but they only had one rule to obey? Not Ten
Commandments like we do. Well anyway, they broke that one rule – and they
were banned from the Garden of Eden forever. They were . . . get the Adam
and Eve Skit.
Let Your Light Shine Bible Game
Set up: You will need an empty paper towel roll “a torch,” and a small yellow pit ball, “the light,” for each team. Designate a course for teams to run relays. Divide players into teams of 4-6 players. Divide teams in half. Teams line up at both ends of the course side “A” and side “B” (2 or 3 on one end and 2 or 3 on the other end).
How to Play: First player in each team on side “A” holds the “torch” and “lights” it by placing the ball on top. At the go, players with the torch race to the opposite side of the course to pass their torch light to their teammate on side “B,” and then proceed to the

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.

[The teacher's newsletter]
is an awesome resource for anyone that works with kids! You never know what will come from
it. I met a new friend in South Africa and the Lord is doing a great outreach there---so many children have been reached and so many teachers trained and given resources, and it started with this connection.

I just wanted to let you know
what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching
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,
The Body of Christ is many parts. Only when the parts
come together do they form one body to accomplish one purpose! Before
class time write body part names on Post-it Notes®.
You will most likely not
know how many kids will show up to class. Therefore, divide the body part
names from major to minor, and then distribute them accordingly as children
arrive to class.
Main Body Parts (For a class of 5-7 kids) Head, neck, torso, arm, arm, leg, leg.
Secondary Body Parts (For 15 or less kids) Ear, ear, nose, mouth, hand, hand, foot, foot.
Tertiary Body Parts (For 16+ kids) Fingers, toes, fingernails, toenails, elbows, kneecaps, knuckles, eyebrows, lips, belly button, hair, freckles, etc.
How To Play: As children arrive distribute the body part names, beginning with the main body parts. If more than seven children arrive, hand out the main and secondary body parts, and if more than fifteen arrive, hand out the main, secondary and tertiary body parts.
Players begin by going up to . . . continue
Application: Jesus, the Light of the world, evangelism – active
"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of
life" John 8:12.
Set Up: For a nighttime class. Establish a secure area.
How to Play: One child, “IT,” is given a flashlight and counts to 25, while the rest of the players hide. “IT” hunts for the players with a lit flashlight. When “IT” finds a player, he or she shines the light on the player and says, “Whoever follows Jesus will never walk in darkness,” then hands the light to that player who responds by saying, “but will have the light of life.” Both players then hunt for another player. When another player is found, repeat the process until all players are found, grouped together, and have had the light shone on them.
The folks at
Network are a pleasure to work with;
I highly recommend them. . . Sunday School Network is a company you can trust.
