I have spend thousands of hours in the creation of the Christian education programs for you to use. And simply they are all FREE. No cost, no obligation, even allowing you to use the programs to create your own for your own needs, after you register with us.
Again, let me ask you Please….if you find a mistake somewhere, spelling or otherwise would you please contact me. I know that There are hundreds and hundreds of pages within this site containing typed articles and resources, to which spelling might be incorrect.  Once these hands could master the keyboard of a organ in concert, but the keyboard on a computer due to arthritis makes the typing sometimes so very hard, and there are spelling mistakes made, a extra letter, or letter placed in the wrong place within a word. HELP ME PLEASE if you find such…. Send the mistake to: shalomtoyou321@aol.com Thank you so very much and God Bless you! I give God all the glory, honor, and praise for allowing me to be His instrument in the creation of the following programs.

The Keyboards for Christ Programs Music, Circle of Life youth Program and Bible School, feature lesson materials that are clear to understand and are illustrated for easy instruction for both the teacher and the children. Depending upon your budget the program is designed around common simple items to do the crafts so that churches and teachers around the world may teach the program. Below is just a visual example[small not the actual sizes] of some of the lesson materials. All the programs center around the Bible and teaches scripture.  Teaching family values, the laws of God [ 10 Commandments] are centered in all the programs.

This is a short ‘snippet’ we suggest that you go through our orientation [13 pages] if you are interested in the program. The orientation will show you just how the entire program was written and how the materials are used and taught. This  web site contains hundreds of pages for the teacher’s reference. The program can be adapted to fit the needs of the church or the community where it will be taught.
