I have a 13-book collection listed on the shelf that is unused Vacation Bible School materials from Gospel Light. The title is "Sonforce Kids: Special Agents," and it has a secret agent / spies theme. I am looking to give this away as a bundle for 3 credits. It has a retail value of over $200, and if you are looking for a Bible-based curriculum for VBS this summer, Gospel Light is a wonderful selection. Send me a PM if you (or someone you know) is interested.

Hello Everyone,

I have a used preschool teacher's guide with 18 new - never opended - pond packs  (student kits) and used cd.  They are God Prints  that are put out by Cook Communications Ministries.  This was for March, April, May Spring quarter 2004.  Lessons include Jonah Obeys, Easter Joy, and Praying People.  I'm willing to send them with 4 orders off of my shelf.  I am one of the preschool teachers at our church and this material was given to us by another church but it was more than we needed.  Since I'm also on the library board I was hoping to trade this material for credits to get more books for our library.  Any questions just pm me.

All the books on my shelf are 3 for 1, I have several of the Anne of Green Gables books, a few Chicken soup, and a couple of Christian romance, as well as a bunch of Christian historical fiction. Just request one and PM me with your other choices. Thanks!
