This Still Works?!?

One of our ministry partners, Linn Chapel, generously contributed financially so that we could purchase a variety of materials needed for ministry here. Our first purchase was a few sets of flannel-graph to use for telling Sunday school stories with Justin and even Dayton. This stuff was old technology when I was a kid but it still works and it never has to be rebooted!

Last Sunday was Beth’s first opportunity to try it out and it worked well. Justin is only 3 and his attention span isn’t much longer than that in seconds but he did stick with it and he enjoyed putting the figures on the little board. Beth walked down to our local fabric shop and bought some larger background pieces which we’ll drape over a white board or something.

Come to think of it, if your church has old flannel-graph sets that it doesn’t use anymore, we’d be happy to receive them. We probably don’t need a truck load of them but I’m sure we could use other sets to add to our small collection. We don’t have any backgrounds that look like scenes and those would especially be nice to use.

  1. We love flannelgraphs! It's such a novelty to the kids, they really seem to pay attention…only problem is ours was left behind in Venezuela and have yet to replace it. 😦 But your post reminds me that it would definitely be worth it, esp. for my 2 1/2 and 5 year old! I hope you get some more!
