Free Stuff Friday "The New" Newsletter from Ministry-To-Children

Print Friendly and PDF

We discontinued our email newsletter sometime last summer, it was just too much time to justify the number of people reading. But since thenย we’ve heard from many readers who miss getting the best of our content delivered to their email.
>> Click here to subscribe <<
So we’re testing a new approach that I’m calling FREE STUFF FRIDAY.
It’s just the very best of our website and focused on things you can print and use right away:

  1. something to print (our top printable resource for the week)
  2. something to pray (a nudge to help you connect with God)
  3. something to play (a game idea to make your teaching time fun)
  4. something to teach (a lesson plan in case there you need a backup)
  5. something to make you laugh (a little humor to keep you smiling, kids notice that)

No worries if email is not your thing, we’re looking for new ways to connect on Facebook & Twitter too. If the form is having problems, here is a backup version.

  3. I love the ministry-to-children website. I am a primary Sunday school teacher and your website is a tremendous asset to me in class preparation.
    There is something wrong with your entry form for the Free Friday sign up. I tried several different email addresses and it said all were not valid. One was my work email address and I know it’s valid.

  4. I’ve used Ministry-to-Children a lot! Thank you for blessing my ministry.
    I would like to get ideas for games to play with the kids either as ice breakers or to go along with the lesson.

  5. I miss your ideas. But not particularly interested in your promotion of curriculums etc. or VBSs. Also I live in Australia. I myself write all the basic kids ministry materials that we use as a church and some of your ideas are great.
    I’d also be happy to share my materials with you.

    • Sounds like a good plan. We have walked back from curriculum reviews and focus on serving churches who are “under resourced” or have people like dedicated to doing Bible teaching for their particular ministry setting. Kudos!
      I think you’ll like what we have coming.
      Plus I’d love to share more reader material – what format are you using? Microsoft Word?

  6. I use so much of online material to prepare my lesson plans. My children love the lessons and learn, too! This is a special blessing.
    By the way, I hope this is the ‘form’ you were referring to, because there were no links to a form on the email I received.

  7. Sounds like a plan to me. I am always looking for “free stuff”. As a Sunday School teacher K thru 2, I try to just my imagination in planning my lessons with added touches getting the children involved, so the children remember the lesson from the bible. Just recently for Peter in Prison we made a prison and played “Prison Monopoly.” The children loved it, each space they landed on was a question about the lesson, saying a memorized bible verse, saying something nice about the person behind or ahead of you, silly things like sing a song and of course “go to jail”. They were also given tokens for prizes. These are the type of unusual games, etc. I am looking for. We made a whale out of watermelon on time for Jonah and the big fish.

  16. Your ministry has been a wonderful help to me as a “one-room” Sunday school teacher. I’m not teaching now (no kids at my church right now, so sad) but continue to keep up with your website. Thank you so much for your help over the years. I’m looking forward to Free Fridays.

  19. This is a great idea!
    Would you have things for early childhood? I can’t find many things, like crafts, games, or even lessons that are appropriate for 2s and 3s.
    Thank you for all you do

  20. Thank you for all of your great ideas and resources! I use them all the time! I hate to say this, but our leaders are not the most organized and there are times when I am called upon to teach my class and I have to pull something out quickly. Your website has saved me many times! When I was the leader (before I stepped down to take a break), it was your resources that kept me together!

  23. I really appreciate all the things MTC offers, and use them a lot at all age levels, up to 12 y.o. or so. I can’t thank you enough…I also recommend them to others. Your ministry is bearing much fruit all over the world (we are in Suriname, and I’m sure countless other missionaries use your materials). We thank you and we also thank the Lord for you.

  30. My Church uses this web sight for our Children’s Church material. Your lesson are really good and the children really do enjoy these lessons. They are easy to use as well. I teach Children’s Church once a month, and the children seam to be very excited to learn about our lord. That is where your lessons really shine.
    Thank you,
