Claim the Name Multimedia Teaching Tools provides Confirmation leaders with audio and visual aids so youth better understand United Methodist history, tradition, and principles. The cornerstone of this CD-ROM resource is a series of PowerPoint® slide shows, each on a different aspect of United Methodist history and tradition. The slide show is rich with pictures of past Methodist heroes, important United Methodist landmarks, and current-day United Methodist youth, as well as other images that will help visual learners remember what they have learned about their faith heritage. Topics include:

• Our Jewish Heritage: Follows the prehistory of the church from the Patriarchs through the early Christian community.

• Our Christian Heritage: Follows the prehistory of the church from Christ's first disciples through John Wesley's Methodist movement.

• Splitting Up and Getting Together: Illustrates the many church divisions and mergers that have made The United Methodist Church what it is today.

• The Role of Laypeople and Conferencing: Explains how The United Methodist Church has come to affirm the ministry of all believers.

• The Role of Women: Tells the story of United Methodist heroines and women's struggles to gain full rights as United Methodist clergy.

• Spreading the Good News: From camp meetings to websites, looks at United Methodist evangelism over the years.

• Social Justice: Shows how United Methodists through the years have responded to John Wesley's call to cure social ills.

• Holiness: Explores the traditional United Methodist emphasis on personal holiness and sanctification.

• Education: From Sunday schools to seminaries, looks at how United Methodists through the years have responded to John Wesley's call for an educated church.

Each slide show is accompanied by a script that gives detailed information about each slide.

Games-such as a crossword, word search, and word scramble-correspond to many of the presentations. These games are in an easy-to-print PDF format, and users may make as many copies as they need. The CD-ROM also features two PowerPoint® quizzes that leaders can use to review the content of all of the presentations. Claim the Name Multimedia Teaching Tools also includes the popular claymation video, Clayride: A Gallop Through United Methodist History.

For audio learners, Claim the Name Multimedia Teaching Tools includes three original songs:

• "Grace!": Learn about the three types of grace in Wesleyan theology in five minutes! The first verse explains prevenient grace, the second justifying grace, and the third sanctifying grace. The refrains work as a review of all three types of grace.

• "Seasons Tell Our Story": Get to know the seasons of the Christian calendar, what they mean, and how they relate to the story of our faith.

• "Fruit of the Spirit": Christian faith bears good fruit. In Galatians 5:22-23 Paul tells us what the "fruit of the Spirit" look like. Give this song a few listens, and you'll never forget that the fruit of the Spirit is "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."

Each song comes with a printable lyric sheet (in PDF format) and a PowerPoint® slide show matching the lyrics to relevant images.

For Windows / Mac [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
