Hello all - Would love suggestions as to a clever name for a new Bible Skills & Games classroom.  Our other workshop names are Thou Art and St. Alban's Playhouse. We're transforming our former video/movie theatre classroom (Show Me Cinema) to skills & games; although innovative when we first incorporated the WoRM in 2001, advancements in technology and parents' views toward limiting their kids' screen time means that it's time for a change. I'd love to hear other church's creative names. Thank you!

Hey Deborah

Does your church have a unique theme/location/history that you could play off of? Are you going with a particular biblical theme or decor theme (like Forest or Beach?). Feel free to post clues and I'll be happy to brainstorm with you (as will others).

There's a forum topic where we've been collecting names. It's at  It's a bit buried, sorry.

That's interesting about the "Cinema." I wonder if parents really follow through about "screen time"?  Does that include the parents putting away their cellphones? hahaha 

The original impetus for what you called "Cinema" and what is now commonly called "The Video Workshop" was a room where audio-visuals could not only be viewed but also created.  I always like that latter emphasis, though I like showing good videos too. Here's a good discussion about the "AV" workshop here:

Over the past three years, our Writing Team has been REVISING WHAT'S POSSIBLE with regard to A-V, Music, and Drama.  Our recent "Singing in the Shower" Drama-Music-A-V lesson in the Jesus Feeds the 5000 lesson set is a great example of that.  Our soon to release "Shepherds and Angels" Advent lesson set has a similar "mash up" between drama and music in the guise of a TV Show.

Hi, @Debbie Fisher!

That is wonderful that you are being so responsive to the needs of your children and their parents. I think everyone will have great fun with Bible Skills and Games, whatever you call it!

There is a whole forum with suggestions here in the Workshop Rotation Model design area. 

Do you have an overall theme for your Sunday school that you can tie into? If not, some more general names from the list that I like are "A Maze of Grace" and "Go Fish!"  There are lots more suggestions at the link above. And decorating ideas here in case you haven't seen it yet (and it may inspire more name ideas).
