brings over 25 years of experience to children's ministry. Our Bible lesson plans and activities
are designed to lead children to
Christ, helping them grow in their faith, so they can proclaim the good
news message to the next generation.
triumphal entry into Jerusalem is retold in this quick skit for children's
ministry. This is a great way to include children in your services on Palm
Sunday. Includes discussion questions and a coordinating craft activity
We have a very small church (28 to 30 people total on average) and it is
hard to find programs to do for VBS. So when I went looking for something that I could do with a group of
kids, the Prayer of Jesus stood out. There are six,
two-hour lessons and we did a lesson a day. The book has game and craft ideas to go with each lesson.
. . . I am already looking into buying more books from Sunday School Network. I feel that learning to pray together as a group, a family, we have grown even closer to God.Thank you, ~ April G.
I am so thankful for finding your site. I teach, but need lots of help and ideas.
I so want to teach these little ones so they know Jesus as Savior. Thank you so very
~ Carol W.
You have fantastic resources. My favorite is your lessons on the
Commandments. Although I taught it sometime ago, the kids still use the hand signals. Keep up the good work.

Bucks Class Incentive
the years teachers have expressed a need to incentivize their programs to
encourage good behavior during class time. One such technique, with effective
proven results, is the use of Bible Bucks. (Who doesn't like to be
class, teacher informs the children of the desired behavior to earn the Bible
Bucks, such as listening attentively, raising hand to ask or answer questions,
participating by answering questions, showing respect to other students and
teacher, or preferably teacher assistant, doles out the Bible Bucks to
behaving children during lesson time. Children must leave their money on the
table and not play with it. If they misbehave by not following the
expectations established before class, the money is taken away, one buck at a
time. When the "sit-still" part of lesson time is over, and
before moving on to the next activity, children put their $ into their
"banks," (index card holders or envelopes with their names written
on them) and then store them away until the next lesson.
I find these
to be BEAUTIFUL! Thank you very
Hide and Go Seek (from God?)
ďOllie, Ollie, oxen free! Come out; come out, wherever you are!Ē Sound familiar? What child hasnít played
Hide and Go Seek? Watching young children hide by covering their eyes, or pushing their heads into a couch pillow with their rear ends sticking out, is quite amusing! They figure if they canít see the seeker, then the seeker canít see them!
Isnít this a picture of what we sometimes do with God?
When I was in my late teens and early twenties, I remember being overwhelmed with the knowledge that God sees me, ALL
THE TIME! I couldnít do anything without him knowing about it. There was no place to hide! (A frightening thought when youíre trying to live life apart from God.)
But our Seeker, who knows the thoughts and intents of our hearts, pursues us despite
. . .
Its hard for a small church like ours to
afford Bible curriculum and yours is so affordable and fun!
Our church used one of your
with great success . . . Thank you for
your ideas and your website.

I just want to say that I am very
thankful for this site. I have found a lot of neat
for Sunday school
group. ~ Kim
I just wanted to let you know
what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching
on Sunday nights and had ran out of ideas
to use. I prayed that God
would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright! This website! I
was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out.
What a wonderful
site! I love it! It has such great ideas.
Thank you so much!

[The teacher's newsletter]
is an awesome resource for anyone that works with kids! You never know what will come from
it. I met a new friend in South Africa and the Lord is doing a great outreach there---so many children have been reached and so many teachers trained and given resources, and it started with this connection.
~ PTL for this site.
I appreciate your
. . . I purchased all of
the books that you offered. They have been absolutely wonderful! The kids
respond so well

Your products are excellent. We have purchased several for our Kids Church and been delighted with every one . . . the
Lighthouse was brilliant!
~ Margaret J., Australia.
I was intrigued with the Amazing Parable Race description [and purchased it]. It allows me to add another resource
to my "bag of tricks" for very little additional cost . . . huge plus! I have many of your resources and appreciate the quality of the materials you provide. For a broadly graded class, I find I can easily reach the youngest and the oldest (Preschool through 5th grade) children. Thank you!

We used the Parables
of Jesus as a starting point for our neighborhood kids Bible
study and adapted the lessons to suit our needs. The lessons provided fun and
easy ways to teach the parables. ~ Michle
Totally love your
newsletters; I use them for our
church youth group. God Bless You!
The folks at
Network are a pleasure to work with;
I highly recommend them. . . Sunday School Network is a company you can trust.
