For children from birth – 35 months, we provide child care on Sunday mornings during both the 8:30 am and 10:30 am services.
For preschoolers, ages 3-4 years.
The 3’s and 4’s/Pre-K class will be discovering that God made everything that is around them. With the help of their teachers and Zach the Dog puppet, the children will be engaging units each quarter about how God Made the World and its People, how God Makes Families, and how God Gives Food, Water, Clothes, and Homes. They will finish up the year learning all about the birth of Jesus in a special Christmas unit.
In our Kindergarten class, the children will be traveling through the Bible. Throughout this class the children will meet ordinary people empowered by God to do extraordinary things! They will be exposed to Biblical people who demonstrate the qualities of trust, prayer, and thankfulness. Later in December, they will learn all about the birth of a Savior!
Through Rotational Sunday School, children learn about Bible stories and themes through a variety of different experiences, and it continues to be popular with the children and teachers alike.
Bible Adventures is for children in 1st through 5th Grade. They rotate through a different workshop each month. Some of the most popular workshops are drama, cinema, games, cooking, storytelling, science, and art. In a rotational setting, the same Bible story or theme is taught for several weeks. Each week, learners rotate to a different learning station. The story remains the same, but the children encounter it in different ways in each workshop.
Repetition is an important part of the rotational approach. The more ways children explore a story or concept the more it is reinforced in their memories. The variety of experiences keeps interest high throughout the unit. Teachers teach the same lesson, with age-level adjustments, for the length of the rotation.
Bible Adventures is exciting for students and teachers alike, as teachers teach to their strengths and students experience Bible stories in ways they learn best.
