1) Bible Review Games

The best book I have found for Bible Review games is Mouse on a Mission by Ed Dunlop. You can adapt many of them to fit your lesson. Besides a great number of games children love to play, there is a section on "Why Bible games are important" and "Using Bible games effectively". Many times I play the games, the class against the teacher, instead of breaking the class into teams. I figure out how many points they to win as a class and give them all a candy if they make it. If I had only one book 
for children's ministry, this would be it.

--from SSTN: you can find this book in our affiliate bookstore by typing the title into the search box at:

Bible Memorization @ Assembly Time? 

I would like to introduce a Bible Memorization portion to our assembly time. If you have any thoughts or favorite verses please share them with me. I hope to improve my own scripture memory.

4) No Passion for Kids?


I thank you very much for your welcome. I have been newly appointed as Sunday School Superintendent at my church since January 2009 after teaching Sunday School for about three years. Some of my challenges are working with people who don't appreciate change and who don't have a passion for kids. Another thing is that it is very difficult to find suitable persons to teach, so for years we have been working with those who are faithful but they are not really good teachers, some of them actually went on the teaching course but I just don't know what is happening. can I get some advice, I'm young, vibrant and have a lot of new ideas, but how do i get them to come on board.

thanks much
