Jonah - Word Search Puzzle

The book of Jonah is only four chapters long; in it there is much to learn about our lives and relationship to God.
Jonah is full of spiritual truths for today, yet it only takes a few minutes to read the entire book.

Bible Devotional: Created in God's Image

Have you ever heard someone say, or maybe you’ve said it, “I’m not very creative; I can’t even draw a stick figure!” While it’s true that many people can’t draw, the visual arts are not the only measurement for determining creativity. In fact, I believe creativity is a hallmark trait of being made in God’s image!

When God created Adam and Eve, he said,
"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness . . . So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” Genesis 1: 26-27 (ESV).

As Christians we believe the term, “us,” is a direct reference to the triune* nature of God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

On the other hand, there are those who would say the “us” is a reference to God’s heavenly court, meaning God and his angels. This presents a problem, because people are not created in the image of an angel. We—human beings, male and female, and not any of the other animals—are created in God’s image, in his likeness. And since God is Spirit (John 4:12), this image must refer to . . .

created in God's image.




Noah Lesson: Alphabet Ups and Downs

Noah Bible lessonI wrote this to use in the active youth game, Alphabet Ups and Downs. (That's the game where you read a group a story with a lot of alliteration, and the kids have to stand up or sit down every time they hear a word that starts with a certain letter.) We were studying Noah, so I wanted our Alphabet Ups and Downs game to match the story. Here's a loose telling of the Noah story that features words with the letter "N."

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's church 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, Mable D.

I appreciate these ideas for Sunday School . . . they come in very handy. ~Tessa, East Africa

Bible Concentration

The book of Romans, in the New Testament, is a very important book for children and adults to read and study. However, it contains some difficult-to-understand words, such as, "transgression, repentance, or intercession". Hopefully this game will help children (and adults) to understand them, and in so doing, help your faith to grow! 

What You Need
Print one set of the 24 Bible words with their definitions, see below. Paste them on index cards (I used large index cards). Write one word with its definition per card. On another set of 24 cards, write each of the words without the definition.

How You Play
Mix up all the cards. Lay them faced down on the . . .

Bible Game: Win, Lose or Draw

My husband and I played a game in church based on Win, Lose or Draw. We divided the class into three groups (2 groups if small group). Then we allowed one person to come up from each group, one at a time and pick a Bible story out of a bowl and that person had to draw it in less than a minute. That group was the only group that could guess within the minute. If they could not guess it, then it was open to all the groups. The group would get 10 points. Anyone who could tell where it came from got an additional 5 points. It was a blast and we played with teens and adults. We were all laughing and learning at the same time. Not only did we have fun drawing but we were challenged trying to remember where certain scriptures and stories were located.
