Intensive Care for Children in Unchurched Homes

Discouragement among children’s workers at churches around the country is often tied to the fallout of kids from unchurched families. After faithfully planting seeds and even seeing salvation decisions, workers witness the children’s faith eroding as they return to difficult family situations.

Teaching with Tech

Does the phrase, “Teaching with technology in Sunday school” make you say “YES!” or “Uh oh!”? I’ll admit, I’m a little of both. My personal collection of smart devices is very small and my church doesn’t have a ton of tech stuff in our classrooms either.

Bring the Bible to life by using drama with your juniors!

The Master’s Touch

I once read an article about the importance of hugging. From documented evidence the author concluded that everyone needs 12 hugs a day to stay emotionally healthy. While I don’t claim to be an expert on emotional health I know from experience that people have a deep need for physical affection.
