Praise the Lord sstn team
I just want to appreciate your site its really helped me. I am trying to apply all the knowledge learned to the Sunday school children I teach I have recently learned the ten commandment song I found but I have used the tune of "old MacDonald had a farm" May the Lord bless you for the wonderful work you are doing in the children ministry. One common thing I have observed is that the children ministry faces challenges which are most times ignored, because the church leadership seem to concentrate more on other issues other than children issues. Dear workers in the children ministry with more prayers and dedication I believe the Lord will continue using us in this ministry for his glory. Much love.

8) Crisis in Nigeria
In the central Nigerian city of Jos and the surrounding area, a systematic orchestrated attack on Christians is underway. Young Muslim men dressed in army fatigues are moving from house to house pulling out residents and shooting them dead. Rows of shops run by Christian traders have been burned to the ground. Churches have been destroyed by fire throughout the city as well.
The mob action began with Muslim youth invading a Christian worship service on Sunday, January 24th, 2010. Many of the churches have yet to be able to count their dead as bodies are still lying in the streets – unable to be retrieved due to the violence.
The city of Jos is situated on the fault line, if you will, between the Muslim north and the Christian south of Nigeria. Muslims have been bullying, torturing and killing Christians for some time now and the situation is worsening. Many Muslim youth are carrying sophisticated arms and wearing military uniforms while others simply use sticks, stones and gasoline. There is unarguable evidence of pre-planned and coordinated assaults on believers.
To make matters worse, both the General commanding the Nigerian Armored Division in Jos and the officer commanding the troops tasked with ending the riots are Muslims. False reports about the origin and nature of the conflict have been given to the international media in order to bring disrepute to the Church.
Fervent, prevailing prayer is desperately needed to support our brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering and dying in large numbers at this very moment in Nigeria. Won’t you join us in prayer?
9) Samson & Delilah Skit?
I'm looking for some ideas for a 10 min skit about Samson and Delilah. The skit will be performed by
high school kids for primary school kids. Have you got anything that will be useful
--from SSTN: Use Scripture from a child-friendly Bible, then
construct the skit adding actions, and if you choose, humorous comments.
Check out these following techniques of skit writing:
