1) Lip Sync Skits

> ...what we would like to do is listen to prerecorded words and music and 
>  we would simply do a lip synchronization on the dramas... 

Have you considered having your kids record the script beforehand and then pantomime it for the performance? This way the children are still involved in production.


Earn money during the holidays!


2) Women's Christmas Brunch Ice-breaker?

Our church has an annual Christmas brunch for all the women of the church sponsored by our Women's Ministry. Does any one know of any ice-breakers that would be appropriate for an occasion such as this to get the women mingling before the event starts?

Thank you,
Eve Conner

3) Operation Baby King - shipping?

The Operation Baby King caught my attention. I was about to purchase it, but I don't know how long the shipping will take. Can I ask how long it will be? I need the answer as soon as possible before I purchase it.
Thank you again=) 

--from SSTN: in our affiliate bookstore you choose the shipping timeframe, one day, two day, etc. The options are listed at:


4) Spanish Resources? 

Hello friends: Do you have Spanish Language resources?

Irma Figueroa

--from SSTN: Hi Irma, yes, we offer the Ten Commandments Look n' Learn Flash Cards in Spanish:

Journey to the Manger this coming Advent. Click here for details.

5) Petition for Women's Release

I've organized a petition for the release of Maryam Rustampoor and Marzieh Amirizadeh, two Christian women from prison in Iran. Obviously a petition alone will do little, but please do the following: (1) Sign the petition. (2) Pray for these two women. (3) And then pass this e-mail along to everyone you know. Below is the link to the petition followed by a site dedicated to Maryam and Marzieh's release with related information. 

Bless you and thanks!

6) Song...building up the temple...?


I need help...we are having Pastor Appreciation this month and I would like my KFC'ers (Kids for Christ) to perform a song accompanied by guitar. I don't know the name of song but I do have some of the lyrics..."building up the temple, building up the temple, building up the temple of the Lord, brother can you help me, sister can you help me..." I don't even know if those are the correct lyrics...but hoping you do and know where I can get them.

Thank you.

All for the glory of God,
Patty Dingus 

--from SSTN: don't have the chords, but here are the words:

"Building up the temple, building up the temple, building up the temple of the Lord. Oh, brother, won't you help me? Oh, sister, won't you help me? Building up the temple of the Lord. It's so high, you can't get over it. It's so low, you can't get under it. It's so wide, you can't around it. You must go in at the door."
