How's your fall Sunday School attendance been going? According to a recent survey, 98% of U.S. churches have returned to in-person worship, but we can't find a single survey about fall Sunday School attendance --so we created one! Take our survey and see what others are saying.
Rotation.org is now the official home of over 140 Gospel story illustrations by Annie Vallotton, the Swiss artist whose works famously illustrate the pages of the Good News Bible. They are being shared with the Supporting Members of Rotation.org by Don and Pat Griggs, who originally commissioned them from Vallotton, for your congregational use. Smaller-format versions of some of the images are available to guests and registered members. Come see the collection and learn more!

About the Rotation Model and Organization of Our Site
Our Bible Story Lesson Forums are organized around "major" Bible stories and "Workshops" -- such as Art, Video, and Drama (creative teaching methods). This organization is a nod to our Rotation modelers for whom this site was originally created. It ALSO helps traditional Sunday Schools looking for more than the "same-old craft." View a short video about the Model.
