The children begin every Sunday at 10:00 in the sanctuary where they are invited to come forward for a children’s sermon. Following the sermon, they go downstairs with their teachers for music and Sunday School.
In our Workshop Rotation Sunday School during the school year, we will be teaching the children the same Bible story for 4 to 5 weeks in a row. Each week, classes rotate into a new and unique workshop, ie: art, video, drama, cooking, computer, etc. Why Rotate? Rotating slows down the rate of story change and deepens the student’s experience and memory. Traditional boring classrooms become transformed into inventive & engaging sessions that improve Bible literacy. Students experience something new each week and will look forward to coming to church!
