This forum is collecting Sunday School classroom supply and resource suggestions, links, and discussions. It includes the "What's in Your Supply Closet" topic and a discussion about Bibles for kids. Lesson plans and ideas for specific Bible stories are organized by story in our Lesson Forums. You can also post your questions about lessons, supplies and resources in the Teachers Lounge.

Sunday School Supplies

This is a "curated" list of good Bible story clipart and image sources and resources for Sunday School.

The internet is full of "free" and not so free Bible coloring pages, Bible images for children, and Bible clipart. You can do a google image search for your Bible story with the words "image," or "clipart" or "coloring page" to find many of them.

If you want to post links to your favorites, read the caution below.

A few favorites to get you started...

Jill Kemp and Richard Gunther's Old and New Testament Bible Images are a treasure trove of FREE printable booklets and free individual images.  The original site for these is known as "Lambsongs."  Many of Richard's illustrations are also available on

  • Available in color and black and white.
  • Drawn in a kid-friendly modern cartoon style.
  • Free to use for non-commercial purposes.

Christian Coloring Pages  --  a great collection of simple black and white Bible images for coloring. Provided by a family-run Canadian company known as "DLTK."

Free Bible
... a non-profit repository of many artist's work, including modern and mid-20thC work now in the public domain or donated to the site. Organized by Book and by Characters. Variety of styles, both cartoon, illustrated, clipart, and including scenes from movies. Some cross-cultural images as well. Includes Richard Gunther's free collection.

Free Bible Illustrations-Clipart by Phillip Martin,
Lots of good stuff here drawn in an appealing cartoon style. Just be ready to ignore all the ads on the page (which is how these images are free) and sifting through a lot of links.

By "curated" we mean:

  • Quality free images. Not schlock or amateurish.
  • We don't support links to groups that only offer a few images as clickbait to sell you more or something else.
  • We don't support links to pages that only offer cheesy OLD FASHIONED images from long-defunct curriculum.
  • We don't support links to curriculum companies offering you "free images" to entice you to buy their products.
  • We also don't support links to overtly "Creationist" websites offering free images.

If you want those kinds of links, you will have to find them yourself

Here are some of my favorites (I use these sites regularly for student worship guides to go along with the sermon):

Super Coloring has many good coloring pages, organized by Bible stpaintTheWorldory. There are also plenty of coloring pages on other subjects (for example, if you need a bird for a creation lesson).

Paper Gifts for Estefany has indexed/linked Scripture passage coloring sheets from a variety of sources. These are great to give to kids so they can take home the memory verse and color it and share it to help them commit it to memory.

Books of the Bible Coloring Sheet Rotation-org

Books of the Bible: bookshelves that can help your students learn the names of the books of the Bible in order. OT, NT, or the whole Bible.

Stevie Doodles has a page for every Psalm plus some other doodled words and images.

Masaru Horie's totally free Christian Clipart at

Masaru is a Japanese illustrator now living in Canada developing Japanese language Christian evangelism and teaching materials. Quite a few of his images are featured in one of's favorite Bible apps, SunScool available for free from

He has 512 free Bible story images illustrated in varying degrees with a very moderate "Japanese Anime style" (some more than others). The best way to find one of his images that matches your story is to use his Search Feature which appears at the top of his page and looks like this:

He has MULTIPLE ILLUSTRATIONS for certain key stories, Exodus and Jonah for example. When you search for "Moses" or "Jonah" you will see all the illustrations for those characters. Where you have many illustrations for the same story or character, you could turn the images into "matching cards" or a "story order" game.

Here are a couple of my favorites to give you a flavor of his style -- one that will be familiar to today's kids. Not all of his 512 images are my cup of tea, but there are plenty of good and great ones.

Nehemiah rebuilds the wall

Jesus on the cross

Jesus rides a colt on Palm Sunday

Water from the Rock of Horeb

Some images are also available in Black and White for coloring. These tend to be "serious coloring pages" -- like of the older student, more "colored pencil" type. Here's Moses Receiving the Ten Commandments coloring page, for example.
