Download the Vallotton Lent and Holy Week Illustrations

Illustration of Jesus washing Peter's is the official home of over 140 Gospel and Acts story illustrations by Annie Vallotton, the Swiss artist whose illustrations grace the pages of the Good News Bible.

Supporting Members can download the full resolution images for congregational use, plus variations of each image. Visitors and free Registered Members can download smaller resolution b&w versions. Come see the collection!

We believe in offering you MANY creative choices to teach a Bible story, not just one. We welcome member-created content and also recruit creative volunteers to help us write innovative lessons for both Rotation Model and traditionally organized Sunday Schools.

Creative Rotation-style Sunday School lessons for kids! In addition to all our public lesson forums, a volunteer group of creative Children's Educators and pastors works with our Lead Writers to produce extra-creative, broadly-graded Sunday School lessons for Rotation-style and traditionally organized programs. We call them "The Writing Team." Come See the Writing Team's Lesson Menu! and learn more about their work.

About the Rotation Model and Organization of Our Site

The lessons and ideas in our Bible Story Lesson Forums are organized by creative teaching mediums and classrooms such as art, video, drama, and cooking (which we call "workshops" for fun). Kids learn the same Bible story for several weeks in a row using different media and teachers each week. If you're using a traditional "new story each week" model, browse all the workshops for your story and pick one that fits your needs.

Here's a short video about the Rotation Model...
