Preschool Sunday School:

Three & Four Year-olds:

Our Preschool Sunday School Class is studying the “Spark Preschool” curriculum this year. The lessons correspond to those being taught in the Elementary Sunday School classes  – if the preschoolers have older siblings then they can discuss the story/theme, parents can read the story or go over the theme at home as a family in their Spark Bible (if you do not have one let Andrea know), and in Chapel all children come together in common themes of worship, helping all ages of kids get more out of Sunday School.  Each week our preschoolers participate in centers, have circle time with a Bible story, and further enhance their knowledge of the theme/story through arts and crafts.

Workshop Rotation

In this approach to teaching the Bible our classrooms have been designed into “workshops”, each focusing on a particular learning style and creative activity. A Bible story or concept is taught throughout the workshops over the course of several weeks. Children come to know the Bible and God through a variety activities—drama, art, games, cooking, computer lab/tablet apps, music, science, puppets and more.

How Does it Work?

Curriculum is designed in 3-4 week “rotations” based on major Biblical stories and themes. During one 3-4 week period (a rotation), only one Bible story/theme is taught. Every week each workshop is focused on learning that particular story. Each Sunday all children meet in the upstairs Chapel with a time for music and discussion about our theme for that rotation. At 9:15 they proceed to their rotation rooms (see white boards in Sunday School hallway to locate where your class is meeting) for that morning’s lesson. Please come to the rotation room to pick up your child if they are in second grade or younger, thank you!

Junior & Senior High Youth  (6-12 grade) 

JR and SR High Youth are experiencing the biblical narrative through storytelling, creative reflection, and dialogue with Echo the Story 36. They are working their way through the Bible with former art teacher Marty Brown. Marty brings an added level of creativity to the lessons through artistic expression and insightful discussion.
