Welcome to the website of The Sunday Paper.


"I have used many materials for 'children's bulletins' and this is by far the best." ~ Mary Friedman, Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene, Jackson, MS.

"You provide such a wonderful spirit. Cheerful but never goofy. Simple but never simplistic. (I know how hard that is.) Informative and never superficial. Please keep up the wonderful work." ~ Gertrud Mueller Nelson, artist and author of "To Dance With God."

"The children look forward to their special bulletin each week. My office door is covered with their pew-art ... bright and colorful ... attentive to the seasons and day ... I am filled with joy when I see adults or youth reading The Sunday Paper before worship. Thank you for the work you do and the encouragement you share." ~ The Rev. Barbara Barth, St. Michael's, Augusta, ME.

Thank you for visiting us on the web! The Sunday Paper is a home-based business, providing quality materials for Christian Education. Our customers include parishes, bookstore, dioceses and individuals.

We still go by the principles set forth in the first ad flyer we ever sent out: "The Sunday Paper is informal, whimsical, faithful to Scripture, and in dead earnest. It is not condescending or cute. It helps children to acquire a vocabulary of crucial Scriptural images, and to relate the Gospel to the Old Testament, the life of the Church, and their own lives."

The Sunday Paper offers you resources, not only for Christian education, but - with the help of an increasingly varied web of partners - for liturgy and play. Sacrament and celebration, pageants and prayer, are as much a part of Christian education as Bible study; liturgy in which children are full participants is the oldest Christian curriculum and still the best - inviting children to wonder, to imagine, to pretend, and to make the stories and rituals part of their inmost selves.

In addition to lectionary materials and books, we offer storytelling and curricular resources through our partner organization, Beulah Enterprises, and we are branching out into a new area, liturgical textiles, again with an emphasis on enriching worship for children. Last year we introduced our first banner design, which will be followed by additional banners and stoles, some designed to be made by children. Or call me if you'd like to discuss a banner or stole to be designed and made to order for your church.
