Thanks for sharing these great materials and ideas. I am headed to Haiti in February to teach in a youth retreat. Looking for good ideas wherever I can find them!
Your welcome, Mark. Hope you found something that will help in Haiti. Thanks for taking God’s truth over the waters!
I will be speaking at a youth event in late January. I would like to use some of your lesson ideas but I felt like I needed to make sure it is okay. Thank you for the great work you are doing!
No problem at all, Tiffany. I would be honored. Hope they help.
Blessings to you!
This is the best so far! I teach Sunday school in our church in Mukono, Uganda. The kids are going to ove these great ideas and they will learn even better. They will also be able to remember lessons taught. Praise God for this creativity.
Thanks, Miriam…I really appreciate the feedback. Blessings on your ministry!
Hi there could I quote some of the material here in this post if I provide a link back to your site?
Sure, Larhonda….anytime. Thanks for your interest…Michael
Thank you so much for this awesome site! I waited till the last minute (again) to get a lesson ready and I found this. God truly used you, I found exactly what I was looking for, a good lesson on spiritual warfare. You will be saving me many more times in the future I have a feeling!! Thank you again!
hey, Julia! You are certainly welcome – glad I could be of help. Blessings to your ministry! Michael
Thank you, so much for this wonderfull ideas, it help me at Sunday school with kidz, in Moldova. God bless you!!!
Hi, Anastasia! Glad these are helpful to you. I have some friends that live near me here in Chiang Mai, Thailand, that were in Moldova for two years through the Peace Corp. They share with us many stories about their time there.
Blessings to you…..Michael
This is the perfect game for my sunday school lesson. But am having trouble printing it. Need to improve my computer skills.

Michael, I was searching for some info on teaching Jonah, but can’t find a search button. I was sure I have seen one on here before!
hi, Sherrie…thanks for pointing that out. I recently had to switch layouts, and I neglected to add the search feature. I’ve put it back on the screen now.
I will be teaching an evangelism class in May and “happened” to find your Roman Road lesson material. It is excellent and I hope you don’t mind if I use it for the class.
Sure, Mae…I’m very happy for you to use it. God bless your ministry! ~ Michael
I needed to find some activities to help teach Love one Another and found a great ice breaker. Thanks
Glad to hear you found what you were looking for…blessings on your ministry!
The ACTS Prayer for Kids is wonderful! I wanted to teach the kids about prayer but needed something on their level. This is excellent and I’ve found so many more topics I can use. Thank you for your ministry helping us to minister to others!
thanks for the comment, Nay…Blessings to your ministry!
My husband and I are teaching a Sunday school for the first time next week to 9-12yr. olds. Our text is Hebrews 12:1-2. Do you have any lesson plans that incorporate that verse? I’ve browsed through some or your plans but couldn’t find anything for that verse…or that could be adapted.
Great website and resources! Thank you for making them available.
Hi, Megan…I have two to recommend to you:
The Race – https://teachingthem.com/2009/02/06/the-race/ (this is about throwing off all the things that weigh us down)
Red Light – Green Light – https://teachingthem.com/2010/09/13/game-red-light-green-light/ (this is more of an icebreaker)
I’ve had good success with both. For The Race, you will need some suitcases or backpacks, maybe some extra clothing, some heavy things to put in the bags, etc. and a place for the kids to run. Red Light – Green Light doesn’t require any materials.
Hope these are a help for you!
Had printed off the Life in 3D lesson but can’t find the power-point that went with it, could you email that to me. Please. It was dated Oct-30,31 2010 That month and year is missing right now??
Hi, Jalynn…I’m not sure I have a Life in 3D lesson. Could it have been another website?
Thanks for all the great object lessons. I’ve used quite a few of these in my SS class as well as taken a few Thailand. This has become my favorite go- to site for the extra ideas. Thanks so much!
Hey, Marc! You’ve been to Thailand? Next time you come, we should grab some coffee at a Wawee. I live in Chiang Mai. If you’re out this way, you can email me at email@example.com.
I’m not sure I’ve seen work this thorough. Yet, available free. Your sleepless nights will not go unrewarded.
thanks, Tony….how did you know I was not sleeping? very perceptive of you.
God Bless you for sharing these resources. You are saving a very busy (aren’t we all?) part time Youth Leader a lot of time!
Thanks, Ruby! I’m glad I could help a little….Michael
This is so nice of you, thank you for the help with my kids in Kids Church.
You are very welcome!

I love your skit for Lou’s Sin Shop. I actually used it for the memory verse, Romans 6:23. It went very well with the children. They enjoyed it!
Thanks you for a creative way to teach a memory verse for children. I would like to use more of your ideas for the children at my church in the near future?
Thanks for the feedback, Alita! You are welcome to use anything you find on the site, and if you have trouble finding a lesson on a particular topic, let me know.

Hi Victorious Vinz, I sent you a copy through email. Thanks for your interest.
RE: Your One Anothers of Scripture, The (INFOGRAPHIC). May I use that slide as a Theme Graphic for the upcoming Alabama Baptist Pastor’s Conference to be held in November 2020? I have already “swiped it” and modified it slightly (See our website: http://www.ALBaptistPC.com), but wanted to make sure it is OK. If not, I will be glad to remove it. Thanks.
Absolutely, Richard. You are welcome to use it however you like. Glad you found it useful.
