(Added 6/2/15) Charlie Church Mouse: Super Pak – my daughter begged me to find Charlie Church Mouse. She said they played it at school often. I finally found it online here, but it looks like you can only request free game demos. I purchased the games here for under $10. Each game contains three fun and entertaining Bible stories.
