Several months ago, I reviewed the first DVD in the new series from Phil Vischer called What’s in the Bible? You can check out that review here. Over the last several months Amy Dolan and her team have been working tirelessly to develop a curriculum to go along with the wonderful videos. The curriculum officially launches this week, and they have graciously offered to allow me to give you a free copy. Here is how it works:
In celebration of the What’s in the Bible? Curriculum release, Buck Denver, MAN OF NEWS, wants to have his picture taken with You!
Download Buck’s Picture (click here to download the picture), and take a creative picture with you and Buck!

Welcome to the unveiling of the new format for the Blog Patrol. What started as a weekly feature summarizing some of the best articles from the Christian Blogosphere has morphed into a monthly feature focused on Children’s Ministry. Thus, you will note the new name (The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol) and the new graphic.
I haven’t worked out all of the particulars about how this might look each month, but I hope you will find the articles linked to in this feature useful. In addition to articles directly related to Children’s Ministry, this blog will also feature more general articles on children and parenting from a Christian perspective. I haven’t set a schedule in stone yet, but I’m hoping to publish each month’s blog patrol on the first Tuesday of the month.
With that introduction, let’s have a look at some articles you might have missed this month:
Many articles are published as series. This sections of the Blog Patrol is dedicated to such series from the prior month.
