Promotion Sunday marks the beginning of a new year for our children in Sunday School. Some of the children move up to new rooms and we welcome new teachers. This year we have used the CDC guidelines to establish procedures for minimizing the spread of Covid-19. We have missed the children and are looking forward to hearing and seeing them next Sunday, August 16.
We are never too young to know God’s love for us! Ms. Emily Davis begins teaching our youngest children when they are babies in arms. The babies are held on the laps of the nursery staff and join the toddlers for Ms. Emily’s lesson. They sing songs, hear stories, and look for Jesus in the pages of their little Bibles. It is a fun time for everyone.
3 Year Olds & Pre-K
In our Early Childhood Sunday School classes, we use a method of storytelling that engages a child’s sense of sight, hearing, and touch as a way to encounter God, so God is experienced, not just
learned about. Our time is patterned in a way that allows the children to come to recognize sacred time and space and be comfortable using this time to worship and praise God.
Kindergarten – 3rd Grade
This year we will continue our study of the lives of God’s people in the Old Testament who lived close to God and are great examples of faith. We will use a multi-sensory approach to engage the children and allow them to see, feel, hear, and retell the stories of David, Solomon, Elijah, Daniel, and many others. Our goal is to extend and deepen the children’s understanding of the relationship between God and his people in Old Testament times.
