Sunday School is an essential part of Christian Education! Here, children and youth learn to read, interpret, and apply scripture to their lives. Classes meet 9:45-10:45 every Sunday (except on Sundays when there is only 1 worship service at 10:00).
This year we are excited to offer curricula from Sparkhouse!
PreK-5th grades are using Whirl, a lectionary-based curriculum. Every Whirl lesson follows a four-part sequence: Welcome, Hear, Respond, and Launch (WHRL!). Each week, kids and leaders start their time together by identifying where they are in the church year and watching an animated video to set up the lesson. Next, they dive into the Bible together, respond to the scripture lesson with creative activities, and circle up to review the lesson and pray before being sent out with take-home leaflets for families to use as talk-starters.
Youth are using Connect, a journey through the Old and New Testaments that helps youth connect the dots in scripture into a narrative of salvation history. Every Connect lesson follows a three-part sequence: See, Explore, and Make. Each week, youth focus on and reinforce a theme by watching a short witty (and sarcastically hilarious) video, exploring biblical text, and creating projects that help the ideas form connections.
