Teaching the Divisions of the Bible: Paul's Letters

Did you have a pen pal growing up? It’s exciting to receive a personal letter in the mail. Maybe some of the children you teach have received or written letters before. The New Testament includes some very special letters, or epistles. We divide these letters into two divisions—Paul’s Letters and Other Letters. Let’s look at Paul’s Letters and how you can teach them to the kids in your Sunday school class!

The Strong-Willed Child

My son is three years old. He is hilarious, busy, and has energy to fuel at least three other kids (or at least it seems that way)! He already has a very strong personality. He loves people, but he also loves the idea of being in charge.

Teaching with Tech

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.

Emojis As a Teaching Tool? Yes!

Emojis As a Teaching Tool? Yes!

Kid’s ministry has changed so much over the last ten years! For example, I did not own a cell phone until I was 19. Now kids get them at younger and younger ages and because of this texting and social media are becoming more and more relevant to even young children.
