|3- and 4-Year-Olds
Our youngest age group spends time exploring God’s love and relating to others through simple Bible stories. “Grow, Proclaim, Serve!” curriculum incorporates Bible stories, activities, crafts, media, and games into a full faith experience for children.
|Godly Play – Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grades
Godly Play teaches children the art of using Christian language – parable, sacred story, silence and liturgical action – to help them become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives. The goal of Godly Play is to show how to be open to the Holy Spirit, the Creator, and the Redeemer all at once and all the time in every place. Godly Play encourages participants to make meaning for themselves by inviting them into stories and providing the opportunity for them to connect the stories with their personal experiences.
|3rd – 5th Grades
3rd Grade Sunday School is the first introduction to the Bible and how to use it – a very exciting year! We learn the books of the Old and New Testament, perform 2 plays each year and test our Bible knowledge in the “Are You Smarter Than a Third Grader” competition with parents.
The 4th – 5th Grade class utilizes the “Grow, Proclaim and Serve!” Cokesbury curriculum as a guide for parts of the year. As a special tradition, the class studies “Feasts and Festivals” learning about weekly Jewish worship traditions. This class plays an integral role with our homeless Manna Bag ministry by filling bags and writing notes of encouragement and sharing God’s love.
