Visual Faith® Ministry is committed to providing resources for all ages that will bless and benefit spiritual formation. We offer our Visual Church Year (VCY) - Children’s Bulletins and Sermon Notes to be used during Sunday Worship. The images and space provided are meant to help with focus and paying attention, acknowledging the visual/kinesthetic learning styles of so many, in order that the message might be remembered to talk about and share with others. We bring our children along to teach them the importance of regular worship, so they can learn to listen, praise, and pray. Worship Into the Week (W2W) will assist you with taking what you learned during Sunday’s worship throughout the rest of your week!
VFM has also enhanced our outreach to congregations with extensive materials designed for Lent and Advent. These can be valuable resources for telling the age-old story of the work of our Savior, Jesus Christ. All materials that carry a fee have a special price for congregations and they are affordable for all congregations.
Visual Church Year
New resources are released each month following the 3-year lectionary. Resources can be downloaded for FREE. However, a VCY Subscription (Children's Bulletins & Sermon Note Sheets emailed directly to you each month) is also available for $60/year.
In addition to the Children’s Bulletins and Sermon Notes we also make the artwork that is used in these resources available as separate files that can be downloaded and used during other times of Bible study, Sunday school, VBS, for events, and more!

A new Worship Into the Week Kit is released each month and corresponds to the 3-year lectionary that the Visual Church Year follows. Worship into the Week (W2W) is $5 per month or an annual subscription (emailed directly to your inbox) for $60.

Do you forget the sermon/message right after you leave church? We all suffer from spiritual amnesia. Great video that explains what "Worship into the Week" is as a visual faith practice! Jamee Thieme, VFM Coach, explains how this practice gives her the opportunity to continue to reflect on the message/sermon from church!

Visual Faith® Ministry's Advent series “Redemption Foretold”, looks at some Old Testament prophesies and their New Testament fulfillment, as we pause to think about the true meaning of Christmas. It all begins in Genesis. Fortunately, despite Adam and Eve’s sin and consequently, our sin, God had a plan for our salvation through Jesus. At just the right time, God GAVE His Son so that all people who believed in Him, then, now and in the years to come, could be forgiven of their sins and be received as His adopted children and inherit eternal life. Ponder on this promise fulfilled as you walk through these days of Advent.
Several of these resources are also available in a Printed - Spiral Bound version in our new Bookstore!
The Redemption Foretold: Scripture Scribing Devotional Guide engages the Visual Faith® practice of Scripture Scribing to take you through the Advent season. There is a daily set of Bible verses and commentary for each of the 23 days of Advent; each set features an Old Testament prophecy and a New Testament fulfillment of that prophecy. You are encouraged to scribe at least the highlighted verse each day and spend time of quiet reflection (even if it's just a few minutes per day), setting aside all of the distractions that so quickly drag us away from time with the Lord.
