Multi-Aged Lessons - Economical + Rotation

The Bible-4-Life series are for ages K-5th grade and may be used within a
traditional class environment or within a rotation-type program. Each
hands-on Bible lesson is accompanied with a craft, game, Scripture
memorization and song time suggestions. Many include 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 class!

Please read more about each of these programs at:

1) Bible Rhymes?

Years ago my dads father recited rhymes about the bible--a for adam the
first man ever to dwell,can you tell me the stories that the bible will
tell?-b for betheleham bethleham on a cold winter morn,in a lonely manger
where Christ was born....these are all he remembers and would love to know
the rest to recite them to our grandson-they would be very old since my
husband is 53 now--have you ever heard of these and if so can I buy them
anywhere-don't know if they were ever published anywhere but just assumed
they were-thanks for any help-lisa chandler-texas

2) Water Theme VBS

Standard Publishing has done all of this for you. Their VBS kit is called
"Take the Plunge" and has a water park theme.  To save money you can
purchase the starter kit (for ideas) or buy the individual pieces (game
book, snack book, etc.).

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

3) Prepare the Way of the Lord?

I will be teaching 14 years old boys and girls on the topic "Prepare the
Way of the Lord". Besides sparking their interest in a biblical
exploration of the life and mission of Jesus, there will be discussions on
the meaning of Jesus' baptism and Jesus' temptations. Would greatly
appreciate some suggestions on what activity to conduct to include all 35
participants. Can someone please help? Thank you.
Yours in Christ

--from SSTN: a helpful resource is, "Tell Me the Story of Jesus"
from our Bible-4-Life series at:

4) 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

You might also check out Acteens, through the WMU (wmu.com). We have
started Girls in Action and are really liking it. It has badges, etc. and
is missions focused. I am not sure if Acteens uses badges, but I would bet
they do.

You might want to check out Pioneer clubs. Here's how they describe
themselves on their website Pioneer Clubs is a church-sponsored midweek
club program for boys and girls age two through grade 12— and is the
program of choice for more than 2,500 churches across North America. Each
week this Christ-centered club program integrates spiritual and personal
development; emphasizes evangelism and discipleship; and gives children
opportunities to learn new skills, make friends, have fun, and develop
Christian values that affect every area of their lives.

7) Pen Pals?

I am interested in having my Sunday School class write to christian pen
pals.  I have 2 boys ages 10 1/2 and 13.  Anyone looking to respond please
e-mail me at jlarmour@hotmail.com.  Thanks!  (I tried the archives but
most of the e-mail addresses were old.)

8) Teaching Missions

I have a whole mission theme that I used for a summer theme that was good.
I can email the theme to you if you want to write to my email @
jmcintom@aol.com. I can attach all items. It is far too much to give
another way.
