PleaseWearMaskManger.Rotation.orgWill this year's Advent and Christmas attendance have a "pandemic hangover"??
It doesn't take every member to NOTICEABLY hurt attendance, it only takes 20 percent of them. And those 20% need to be pastored to and to celebrate Advent, too.
Take a look at some suggestions for adapting your programming to welcome all. What are you planning?

Do you feel like you are doing the same things every year? Our creative sharing community can help you find new and better ways to teach timeless truths!



WT-adameveTired of the same-old same-old lessons about Adam and Eve? Take a look at our creative Writing Team lesson set!
Your students will explore God's grace in the face of sin as they make an "exploding snake" ("stick bomb"), retell the story with torn-paper collage, make Super Sour Gummy fruit candies with a special twist to illustrate (and taste) an important idea about temptation, and do science experiments that demonstrate key teaching points in the story.

The summary page — listing all of the lessons available for this set — is open to the public.

Jesus-&-Peter-Foot-WashingNEW resource at Rotation.org: The Annie Vallotton Bible Illustrations Collection.

Annie Vallotton's Bible illustrations are some of the most beloved and widely known Bible story illustrations in the world—having appeared in over 40 million copies of the American Bible Society's GOOD NEWS Bible. A number of years ago, Christian educators Don and Pat Griggs commissioned 140 Gospel Story Bible images from Annie in the same "Good News" style for publication, and now they are making their collection available to the members of Rotation.org.
Supporting Members can access the collection's higher resolution images in both black & white and in color here. Registered (free) Members will find smaller black & white versions of many of the images in our Lesson Forums posted in the A-V/Video Workshop resources that correspond to the Bible story they depict.

"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up,
just as you are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11



Screenshot_1More than two dozen Christian educators gathered last Monday on Zoom for an hour of prayer, brainstorming, and encouragement as we shared our challenges and ideas regarding the start of a new school year in the midst of a continuing pandemic. While the situation is different in each community, we found that we had much in common.

We know some people were unable to attend our Coffee Chat, and we also know that those who were there wanted a summary of all that we talked about on Monday. Check it out here.

CovidBumpJust 2 months ago many of us were excited to think that the COVID pandemic was in our rear-view mirror and this fall would be a return to a new normal for in-church Sunday School. But now many churches find themselves staring into the unknown once again as vaccination rates have stalled and a more virulent variant of COVID is sending infection rates up again.
Join the conversation: How can we creatively and safely solve our fall needs? Are you rethinking your plans?

grandparent-2656412_1280Intergenerational ministry is more than having parents attend Sunday school with their children. It is intentional activities and interactions between people of different ages and stages of life - and it may be the solution to your problem of smaller numbers of people attending Sunday school these days. Check out the resources at our site and consider adapting your Sunday school program to include all ages in one class.

silverliningSome thoughts about recruiting teachers for fall:
Many adults and families need or are looking for a reason to get back into the habit of going to church --and volunteering to teach can BE THAT REASON.
"Stay at home habits" are the battle that many experts are predicting and that reopened churches are already experiencing. Having a specific reason to attend, such as teaching, can help break the "stay home habit" created during the pandemic.

Here's help so that you can do your job better this week!

Whale1For some reason, summertime feels like the perfect time to teach the story of Jonah. Maybe because this watery whale story is perfect for teaching outdoors on on hot day? 😎
Take a look at the multitude of FREE creative ideas we have collected at our site to help you teach this important story of faith, obedience, compassion, love, and evangelism -- including how to create an inside the whale experience for your students!

Matthew12.11.RotationIncreasing Sunday School attendance has always been the goal of teachers and leaders. We've put a lot of heart and soul into the effort. That's what makes the post-pandemic prospect of lower attendance this fall and into 2022 disheartening.
What about some "simple "asks" that helps families and volunteers get back into the habit and attitude of participating?

Cool finds for Hot Summer Days - treasures shared on Instagram this week




Jesus BoatsHot summer days are the perfect time for a creative watery lesson. Check out the Water Workshop from our Writing Team about the time Peter tried to walk on water, but sank! In this "hands-in" lesson, after hearing a storyteller's version of the Bible story, students will gather around "The Sea of Galilee" (a pool of water) to re-enact the story with an extra focus on the meaning of the waves and boat in the story, and watch their fears sink.

LeapFaithLogo4Have you seen our FREE heart-stopping but discussion-starting video that captures the excitement, fear, and unknowns of planning for the post-pandemic fall of 2021?

In addition to the downloadable video, our team has put together a free companion discussion guide for teachers, leaders, pastors, planners, committees, and all those working in children and youth ministry.

  • The free video is an attention-grabbing two-and-a-half-minute discussion starter. It includes lots of heart-pounding leaps of faith and scripture.
  • The free handout guides discussion from how we're feeling to what our needs are as we look into the brave new world of post-pandemic ministry.

MaryMarthaPuppetsHere is a fun idea for your Wednesday night program or other special events: a puppet lesson about Mary and Martha's visit with Jesus. This lesson, adapted from an activity from Meaningful Mama, focuses on the importance of spending time with Jesus.

Make and take puppet lessons like this one work especially well to help younger children practice retelling Bible stories and sharing their faith with others!

Quick lesson ideas you can use now

thoughts about returning to gathering in-person in the fall:

links to this week's Instagram Treasures



PP-IsraelitesReturning_JS_0121The story of Daniel, the Babylonian Exile, and the RETURN from Exile is definitely instructive to those of us about to "return" after the pandemic.

Daniel's story reminds us that Exile can be a needed wake-up call. That sometimes our faith and life need to be hauled off so that they can over-hauled. That having to "do without" helps clarify what's really important.

Their story reminds us that not everyone who went into Exile returned. And not everyone went into Exile, indeed, the Exiles had to reintegrate with those who had never left.
You can read more of this reflection and join the conversation here.
And you can join our brainstormers here as we start the conversation about HOMECOMING.

PearlGreatPriceHere is a fun and easy game/craft project to accompany a lesson discussing Jesus' teaching about the Kingdom using the parable of a pearl of great price.

#kidmin #childrensministry #creatviesundayschool #sundayschool #pearlofgreatprice #teachingJesusparables #gameWorkshop #sharingcommunity




CreationScienceWaterLooking for a creative way to teach about creation and stewardship of what God created?
Take a look at the Waters of Creation lesson idea in the "Cooking" Workshop topic that has the kids creating and filtering water using edible foods. It's really a science experiment but it uses edible foods so it works as a Cooking or Science Workshop lesson. Its focus is on the waters of creation and how they continue to sustain us both literally and spiritually.

(FREE registration required to access this and other creative Creation lessons at our site.)

MusicMinDo any of you have or know of a children's ministry music program that is successful with today's kids and schedules? In this new day (post-pandemic), everyone is wondering how to make a music program invitational, compelling, and accessible. This could be a great time for something new.

Mid-May Treasures shared on Instagram: ideas to help you finish out the school year and prepare for summer.



legoBuildLEGO construction workshop! A great way to teach about Joshua and Caleb and the 12 spies (or any other Bible story)!

LEGO lessons can also be "constructed" using playdoh, Bible playmobile characters, even "superhero" action figures. Mix and match, the kids love it.

gates-2437552_1920Recruiting volunteers for the new school year?
The next step is background checks.
But background checks are not the only requirement for safety today. Every church should have in place both policies and actual practices that make the church a safe place for children, youth, and adults and help identify young people at risk.

Join the conversation about Safe Church practices.
