Parent Conferences

Sophie, my fifteen month old daughter, spends two days a week at daycare. I was eager to attend the first parent conference this spring to hear about what she's learning and how they see her developing. What if the same thing happened in our children and youth ministry programs?

Has anyone out there used clips from The Bible TV show (History Channel) for Adult Ed?

I just spoke with a Presbyterian pastor who is interested in using clips from the History channel's The Bible show as part of his adult education class. He is looking for a study guide or questions that he could use along with clips to spark discussion and help everyone reflect on the stories. Any ideas? I'm going to recommend that he check out pieces of the inductive Bible studies from Faith Alive, but I also thought someone out there might have already developed lesson plans they'd be willing to share. Let me know!

The Songs We Sing

When I think of Sunday school I think about telling God’s stories and sharing God’s love. But we’re also passing on a faith tradition. With that in mind, the songs we sing with kids and the variety of music we use is significant. It can help or hinder our efforts to enculturate them into the full life of the church.
