1) Easter Game: Scrambled Eggs

Children unscramble the eggs to discover an ancient Easter greeting. Download "Scrambled Eggs" from our Holiday Bible Games section at:  


2) Motivating Volunteers

I found some great tips for motivating volunteers in the SSTN archives. Just type, "motivating volunteers" in the search box on the home page of the website: You can also find ideas for teacher appreciation days.

In addition, by keeping volunteers in the "loop" so to speak, by involving them in training, brainstorming, and then using some or all of their ideas, you do two things, they have "skin in the game" and you honor them by showing them they matter and are an integral part of the ministry. 


3) "Good Friday" an Oxymoron?

Oxymoron: a figure of speech that produces a seemingly self-contradictory effect, as in “cruel kindness."

4) Crawling Off the Altar

Jesus could have "crawled off" his cross-altar, but he stayed put. Why? 

In Romans 12:1 we are told to present our bodies, our lives, as living sacrifices, yet we crawl off God's altar. Why?
