I'm hoping in the Fall to run an intergenerational (weekly/monthly) program at our church taking us through the 66 books of the bible. So as I gather materials, I think may be useful, I've included them here below for the benefit of others who may also be interested in doing something similar.
My thought is we'd include everyone in: dinner, movie (What's in the Bible?), and some follow-up activities and finish breaking apart the children and adults for deeper study and discussion.
So below I'm including resources I've found for both children and adults.
What's in the Bible? Dvd Series by Phil Vischer (creator of VeggieTales).
Takes your church (adults/children) on a tour through all 66 books and how they connect together into one big story: God's rescue plan!
Below is an overview of each video (each DVD contains two 25-minute episodes)
