1) Youth Clubs?

I am interested in starting a type of club at our Church for our teens.  I
would like to have it so they can earn badges,(mission work, team work,
etc., etc.). Anybody doing this type of work? Any help would be greatly
In Christ, Sherry

2) Water Theme VBS?

I am thinkging about having a "Water Theme" for VBS this summer and would
be interested in some good ideas that you have used that were exciting and
successfuld with this type of theme for children. What type of props did
you use for setting up in the sanctuary? What songs? What motivations?
What games (outside or inside), and snacks that went with the theme? What
Thank you for all your suggestions and help with this "water" theme.

4) Drawing Contest

> I would like any suggestions of games that includes drawing
> something and then getting the best picture to win a small prize.
In response to Florence.  I teach a Sunday School class of kindergarten to
3rd graders. We play a game on the blackboard of our classroom that the
kids love.  I write down words or scenes from that day's lesson on index
cards.  Each child picks a card and draws what is on it until the other
children guess correctly. (no words allowed!)
I have played a variation of this game with older children (grades 6-8),
where I write down the Bible verses on cards.  They have to "draw" the
verse so the other children can guess it. Again, I use topics/verses that
we have recently covered in lessons.
If you do not have a blackboard in your classroom, you could
use newsprint.
I like the idea to draw heaven.  I will use it soon.
Hope this idea helps,

Multi-Aged Lessons - Economical + Rotation - Multiple Ages

The Bible-4-Life series of lessons are for ages K-5th grade and may be
used within a traditional class environment or within a rotation-type
program. Each series is accompanied with a craft, game, Scripture
memorization and song-time suggestions. Most include hands-on enrichment
ideas to further enhance your program. They're great for midweek classes
too! And to help your budget, one book is all you need for an entire

7) Teaching Missions?


I am searching for ways to teach missions. I was wondering if anyone had
any thoughts or knew of a good curriculum.

8) Lost skits I wrote for Son Harvest?

To those who have used Son Harvest in the past two years, I need your
help. I wrote skits for each day for one person and Henrietta.  I have the
skits for Monday and Tuesday and have lost the rest.  If I sent you these
in the past, and you still have copies, would you please send me Wednesday
thru Friday?  I am sending the kit on to a fellow church and would like to
include them.   Thanks to all for your wonderful ideas and sharing them.  
Thank you Sarah for being such a wonderful servant to the Lord!!

ysiC, Patty  :)
