Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a sampling of some of our more frequently asked questions...

If you don't find the answer to your particular question here, please contact us by using the form on the Contact Us page.

I am having trouble viewing/printing the lessons...

All of our lessons are in PDF files, which are best opened by PDF viewing programs, such as Adobe Reader. If you do not have this program on your computer you can download it for free by clicking the link below. 

If you have Adobe Reader installed and you are STILL having issues, you may need to instruct your browser to open those files only with Adobe Reader. Some internet browsers have internal programs to open the PDF files, but they are not doing it properly.

An easier method may be to download the file you wish to open or print to your computer and then open it in Adobe Reader to view or print. 

To download a file, choose the song or skit you wish to download. RIGHT click on the link on the page.  A dialogue box will appear.  Select "Save As..."  Save the song or skit to a location on your computer where you can find it again easily.

When will you have more materials available?

Great question!! Of course, Sunday School Center is still under construction. (Wear your hardhat!) Be sure to come back and visit us often, as we are always adding new things!

We have recently added to our Ideas Section a set of Teacher Training ideas and a page full of Recommended Resources.  

Next on the list is the long awaited Children's Lessons!

If you don't find what you are looking for today, Contact Us. This helps us know what materials our visitors are seeking.

We are adding new things all the time. So, come back and visit us often!

What permission is granted for use of materials?

When you download materials from Sunday School Center, you have permission to copy and use them as needed for your ministry.

If you are performing a skit or play for an audience, you have permission to do so for your ministry. Please include the author's name and copyright date on your program. (EX: Copyright 2014, Sharon Kay Chatwell.)


  • You have permission to make MINOR changes to the scripts as necessary to accommodate your group. (EX: Adding lines, changing lines, adding additional shepherds and angels, etc!) 
  • However, if you make MAJOR changes to the skit, please include a notation on your program that your skit is "Based on the Original Skit by Sharon Kay Chatwell, Copyright 2015" etc. Thanks!

Please DO NOT post any of these materials to public sites on the Internet as they might become altered, and we prefer that they remain Bible-based and Christ-honoring.

If you wish to suggest these materials to others, please post a link to Sunday School Center, so that they may copy the materials directly from here! Thank you!

For more information please review our official USE POLICY.

By the way... THANK YOU for using our materials!! God bless you in your ministry!!

Who visits Sunday School Center?

I'm so glad you asked! It is THRILLING to us that people from all over the world are visiting Sunday School Center!

We are based in the USA... but, by the grace of God, Sunday School Center is reaching out to people in countries on the other side of the globe!

We have already had visitors from over 175 different countries!! (And in some of these countries Christian materials are not readily available...)

See our MAP!

Please PRAY for our Christian brothers and sisters AROUND THE WORLD as they are able to access Bible-based materials via the Internet.

How can you give these materials away for free?

We are dedicated to having free Sunday School lessons and other materials available for you to download at Sunday School Center. It is a privilege and a blessing to be able to share these things with you!

Sunday School Center has enjoyed a lot of traffic since it was started!! We give glory to God for this, as it is clear He is using the site to reach people all over the world!

We have begun to add affiliate links, and recently have added an online store.  Both of these ideas will bring in revenue to help defray any costs associated with developing and maintaining the website.

However, no matter what happens, we want you to know that we plan to have free materials available for you to download and use here at Sunday School Center! 

How do your affiliate links work?

Actually, we are hoping that they work quite well.  (Ha... little joke... )

Anyway, we are trying an experiment in the case of affiliate links.  We are beginning to add them in spots like on our VBS Themes review pages.

When our visitors click on these affiliate links and proceed to websites that sell these VBS products, those sites keep track of if/when those visitors buy materials on their site during a set period of time.

If you were to purchase a VBS program for your church on their site within that certain period of time, then Sunday School Center would receive a small portion of their final net profit from that sale. 

We hope that our affiliate links do not cause you any inconvenience.

Do you have a mailing list?

Yes, we do! The Sunday School Center "support staff" (At the moment that's me... Sharon) maintains a mailing list of persons who Contact Us directly. If you let us know what age group of students you work with, we will place you on the specific mailing list for that group.

We send out mailings intermittently, based mostly on when we add new things to the site that might be helpful to your age group of students. (Of course, you can always opt-out of mailings!)

By the way... We do not share (sell, lend-lease, copy, photograph, trade, barter, give away, sell... Did I say that already?...) any information you may choose to give us. For more information, please see our PRIVACY POLICY.

Write to us and let us know about your ministry! It is a blessing to hear from you!

I can't find what I am looking for...

We may not have everything you are looking for, so please feel free to visit our Recommended Resources page to see some other fine websites with Bible lessons and materials that may help you.
