Hey_Kids_sample_coverHey Kids – Subscription – 3 issues p.a. $75.00.
Lectionary-based children’s talks, with optional references to our Children’s bulletins incorporated into each message.

Our Hey Kids series can be used independently, or in conjunction with our Children’s bulletins.

You receive the full text for each talk, allowing you to work right from the manuscript, or to adapt it to your personal style.

Each issue, containing the talks for a four-month period, will arrive 3 times per year at about the same time as our Children’s Bulletins shipment.

Subscriptions begin with January-April, May-August or September-December.
