1) Bible Clip Art?

Does any one know of a site with f-r-e-e clipart for bible stories. I found a few but they often leave parts out of the story, and I don't want to mix the art overall style and presentation with different artist renderings.

I am looking for the story of Moses but especially the part where they had to hold up his arms to win the war

2) Youth Camp Theme?


I have a youth camp coming up shortly. I am looking for a theme that I can centre the camp around. Any ideas?

Cardboard Testimonies

A couple of weeks ago we visited another church. Near the end of the sermon the pastor asked the youth group kids, to give their testimonies. They had just returned from youth camp. Their presentation was so unique! Each person held a piece of cardboard (approximately 2' x 2'). On one side was written how they used to be, and on the opposite side how Jesus has changed them. They took turns walking to the center of the platform (chancel) held up what they used to be like, then turned the cardboard over to show how Jesus changed them. No spoken words! Fabulously effective!

5) Why Is Children's Music Important?

I am interested in articles regarding the importance of children's music in the life of a church. 
Also, any suggestions on programming ideas and how to attract children to participate would be helpful.

6) Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch?

I need a Sunday School Craft for 5-10 year olds - any ideas?


7) SSTN format...not convenient

Dear Sarah,
I would like to comment on the sstn website. I find it difficult to use as it requires going online to view the day's posting. Some of us live in places where we do not have constant access to the internet. I want to be able to download my mails and go home and read the comments and still have them to refer to when I am offline. The new SSTN makes that quite difficult. I appreciate all your good work. 


--from SSTN: 
Dear Oduenyi, I understand your concern. I hope you read issue #33 to see why this is happening. The cost to deliver the newsletter has tripled, so this is an attempt to bring down costs. Also, we don't want to charge for the newsletter either. This is a trial run to see the cost difference. We might return to the old format. Pray for supporters.

Also, you may or may not know this, but all the SSTN articles, going back to Jan. 2000, are stored in our archives to be accessed, or searched out by topic, whenever you're able to read them. The "Search" link is at the top of our home page or newsletter.

Your webservant,

8) Armor of God...recyclables?

I am doing a study for 6 year old on the Armor of God. For the activity I want to make each item out of something to recycle. For example I thought I would use cardboard for the sword, shield and breastplate by cutting the shape out and having the child paint it. But I am stuck on what I can use for the shoes, belt and helmet. Thank you in advance for your help.

--from SSTN: check out the following page for armor ideas:
