Heroes of the faith
Head to Mark Barry's website to see his Heroes of Faith cards.
Print, cut out and stick them back to back -- the kids will have a collection of all 11 cards in total. You could set up activity stations around the room with information about each Bible character, and they collect their cards as they go along.

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." (NIV)
