Jonah-No Ordinary Fish Tale Bible Lessons for Children on God's Mercy and Salvation
Ch. 1 – Jonah Disobeys God – God sends a Storm
Life Application: God may send storms into our lives to bring us back to him. The
salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
Ch. 2 - Jonah Repents in the Fish – God delivers him
Life Application: God provided protection for Jonah while “in the fish.” When we’re “in
Christ” we too are protected from God’s judgment. God forgives those you are repentant.
There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and
death. RO 8:1-2.
Ch. 3 – Jonah Obeys God – Preaches to the Ninevites
Life Application: God does not show favoritism, but accepts people from every
nation who fear him and do what is right. AC 10:34-35.
Ch. 4 – Jonah is angry with God – God disciplines him
Life Application: God’s ways are not our ways. God disciplines those he loves.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways. IS 55:8.
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.
I appreciate your
. . . I purchased all of
the books that you offered. They have been absolutely wonderful! The kids
respond so well

Freeze Frame Bible Memory Game
Application: Bible memorization – active
Preparation: Spend some time during class memorizing your Scripture verse, then play Freeze Frame to reinforce it. You will need lively praise music.
How to Play: Turn on the music, turn up the sound. Kids jump to the music. When you stop the music kids "Freeze Frame," that is they freeze their positions and don't talk. Teacher then says the first word in the Bible verse, and then tags a player,
which "thaws" him or her. The thawed player has the opportunity to say the next word. If the correct word is stated, he/she thaws another player. If a child doesn't know the word, he/she remains frozen. The thawed player can tag
to thaw another player. Play continues like this until the verse is stated.
Alternately, if a player doesn't know the next word, the teacher can start the music again and only the players who are thawed can jump to the music. Teacher would begin
by playing as before, until the verse is stated.
The Bible was written over a 1500 year period, by a wide variety of authors (as many as 40), from many different locations. Its authors are from all walks of life. Some were kings, some peasants; still others were philosophers, fishermen, doctors, judges, scholars, poets and farmers. Despite the span of time and the diversity of writers, it is one book, with one common purpose: to reveal God's salvation plan to us. The Bible was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to benefit all who read it.
Bible Stack-O! Playing Cards
The 39 Old Testament cards are numbered on a black background and the 27 New Testament cards are numbered on a white background. Each card has a written summary of the Bible book.
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.
