Great Spaces, Learning Places: Creative Environments for Children's Ministry
Author: Jan Hubbard and Dale Olsen

Only negative thing is the photo's are in black & white, probably to keep the price down, but good ideas and great for anyone who'd like to make changes but don't know how to convince their church or where to begin.

Let's face it--boring rooms at church just don't cut it with today's media-savvy kids. More and more churches are looking for ways to create fun, creative and engaging environments where kids will actually want to be. Whether you're a church practicing the rotation-style Sunday school or are just looking to "kick it up a notch" in your Children's or Youth Ministries, this book has what you need! We provide all the essentials for both small-budget and large-budget churches to achieve professional effects and to let your kids know how much they are valued!

I've included these drama books here because inside the center of each are 8 different background transparencies you can use to paint simple backdrops on your wall. And because they are in colour it makes painting (colour choice) a lot easier. Transparencies in each book are different. So for the price of one you get two resources, drama & decorating.

I am interested in viewing these skits/transparencies for our Sunday School rotation.  Can someone provide me with the scripts for these, please?  And the transparency backdrops??


Thank you very much.    Grace Kim

Hi Grace,


We are not a store.  It's resource information on good books we've compiled from people who have used these books and recommended them here for others.  The skits/transparencies are books you would have to purchase elsewhere.


When the resource information was original posted they were in print and available through any Christian bookstore or website.  As indicated they are now out of print, but it was such a great book we left the information as often you can still find copies of out of print books online just do a search using the ISBN numbers provided above - also try


Hope this answers your inquiry.


If you have a particular story you were looking for a script let me know and I may be able to make some suggestions.
