This purpose of this section on our website is to provide some simple resources and links for parents who are interested in having Sunday School or church-time for their children at home.
Update May 2021: If you are looking for Joy’s dad’s sermons with the children’s printables, they have been moved from our website. We are currently working on another website where some resources previously found on this page are moving to. We will put a link here for you when that website is ready.

Below are a couple of FREE resources offered from our family…

Teaching Children the Bible How do you teach the Bible to your children? Do you use a monotone, boring voice, straining or sighing? I hope not but many people don’t know or perhaps remember, how to read, how to retell, how to make a lesson more memorable. What about objects or visuals – do you use those at least occasionally? Here are some simple tips to make your teaching sparkle!
A Teacher is Needed Now! Have you ever been asked to “fill-in” for a teacher who can’t make it to Sunday School? These are substitute teaching ideas to make into a bookmark for your Bible.
Q: What do you do for “church at home” for children?
A: Having been “at home on Sundays” a fair amount in my life and even more so in recent years, it is relatively easy to find ministries geared for adults, especially nowadays online with high speed internet. But to find easy-to-use resources for children in these above examples of home situations can be more of a challenge. (I’m meaning here the kind that require little or no prep and yet are meaningful to a wide age range; not “busywork” and not the kind of high-energy lesson one might put together for a S.S. class of children, not just a marathon of entertaining videos with some sort of “Christian” content. What I’m more often looking for has to work with possibly a child who was up half the night or a parent who also wants to take in an online/T.V. church service around the same time. It might be something that works for all ages – both adults and children, or it might be something that is easy to do with children while having something else in the same or next room for the older people of the household.) Sometimes we have used our own homemade resources and sometimes we go to other websites or publishers/ministries.
