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.
This November have students explore the many KNOWS* of the Bible.
Provide concordances or choose some KNOW verses before class, and then throughout the month memorize them.
Here are a few KNOW verses to get you started:
"Be still and KNOW that I am God" Psalm 46:10. (This was my mom's favorite verse. It's just like her--simple and to the point. And like her, it brings calm whenever I read it! Amazing how God works that way!)
"Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you." (Psalm 9:10)
A wise heart accepts
commands. Proverbs 10:8 (NRIV)
you curious as to why there's only one tablet with ten commands written on it,
as opposed to two tablets with #1-5 on one tablet and #6-10 on the other?
God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, he gave him two tablets. However, most
likely the tablets were duplicate copies with all ten commandments written on
each one*, because, the tablets were a covenant agreement, a promise, between
God and Israel. As such this covenant was like other ancient near east
agreements between two parties or two people, whereby both parties received a
copy of their contract.

Your products are excellent. We have purchased several for our Kids Church and been delighted with every one . . . the
Lighthouse was brilliant!

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.
~ Frances Kemp
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.
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
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.
Begin by spending a few minutes memorizing the golden
rule, which is, "Do unto others what
you would have them do unto you" Matthew 7:12.
We call this the golden rule, because it is a valuable way to treat
others. The Bible doesn't call it "the golden
rule." But Jesus wants us to know we are to respect others,
because people are made in God's image. What does it mean to RESPECT others? (Receive
To respect others means to be kind to other people, to be
courteous or polite in the way we use our words and our actions. We
are to love one another, because God loves us. Today
we will use the letters of the word, R.E.S.P.E.C.T., to help us
remember how we should treat our teachers who give of their time to
teach us about God.
REMEMBER, God gives
us teachers to help us learn. EVERYONE is happier when we behave well. SITTING still helps everyone pay
attention in class. PAYING attention helps us to learn. ENJOY learning new things about God and
his world. CARING for one another makes for a better
class. THANK your teachers for giving their
I find these
to be BEAUTIFUL! Thank you very
T-H-A-N-K-F-U-L Bible Game
Throughout the book of Psalms we are told to give thanks to God. (Read the following three Psalms and discuss what the writer was thankful for.)
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 136:1
I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation. Psalm 118:21
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalm 28:7
What are some of the things the writer of these Psalms was thankful for? (God's goodness, enduring love, answered prayers, salvation, protection, help.)
What are some things that you are thankful for? (Allow for discussion)
Today we will play a game called "THANKFUL." As you play, think of some things you are thankful for using the word, "THANKFUL" for your inspiration. For example, "Thankful begins with the letter 'T.' "I am thankful for tomorrow, because God is trustworthy."
The folks at
Network are a pleasure to work with;
I highly recommend them. . . Sunday School Network is a company you can trust.
~ Glen B.
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 plays with great success . . .
Thank you for
your ideas and your website. ~ Lynn Rhodes
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!
Another sister in Christ,
[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.
Totally love your
newsletters; I use them for our
church youth group. God Bless You!
I appreciate your
. . . I purchased all of
the books that you offered. They have been absolutely wonderful! The kids
respond so well
