Fruit of the Spirit series

I too am using SSN's Fruit of the Spirit series. It is fabulous. I love the object lessons. I truly believe in them. The orange (one spirit) and orange sections (the nine fruits) has been my favorite so far...parents loved this one also....however, I have a ways to go yet...we are only in the second lesson of JOY. Thank you Sarah. Dianne, Somerville, AL

--from SSTN: thank you, Dianne. It's so great to get feedback...especially when it's positive. ;o))

3) No-Pay Resources?

Dear Rev, 

I am a Christian from Vietnam, also a member of our deacons. Would you please give me some of Web to have documents which I don't need to pay. In case of our church, we have no money to pay for this document. Moreover, In Vietnam we have no more documents as the foreigner.

In Christian Love.

--from SSTN: Dear Hieubt, If you scroll to the top of this newsletter, you will find links that will take you to resources that do not require payment. Check out our: Bible Games, Christian Crafts, Skits and Object Talks. There are over 1400 pages to download and use.

4) High School?

I need some suggestions for courses or curriculum that will grab the attention of a High School age Sunday School class. I'm competing with cell phones, text messaging, poor attitudes, laziness (wanting to sleep in class), etc., ... HELP!
Our church is doing a 12 week leadership course and i'm wondering if there is something out there of this sort for a sunday school class for my age group.

Thanking anyone who can help!

5) Ten Commandments Lessons

We are using your "God's Top Ten" lessons in our children's church. We could not be more pleased. The first week the kids knew the hand signs for all ten commandments. The material is well prepared. We have ordered the Beatitudes session for next time. Looking forward to teaching them.

In Christ,

--from SSTN: Dear Sandra, it's great to have your feedback. Thank you!

Mad Scientist

I am a Baptist Sunday School Teacher moving from K-Preschool to 4-6th grade class this year. My goal is to inspire the kids to stay involved and excited in their faith at what I consider to be the most pivotal time. (My own Grand Daughter is beginning not to want to come to church anymore.) 

I am excited to find the "Mad Scientist" experiments lessons, this is exactly what I was looking for.

SSTN has already been a blessing to my teaching, Thank You so much for this site! 

--from SSTN: you are so welcome! Invite your friends and coworkers too! For anyone else who may be interested in the Mad Scientist lessons, you can find them in our "Object Talks" section. The link is at the top of this newsletter.
