Matthew 19:14: But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For
the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.
The Carnival Extravaganza was so much fun! Seeing so many faces with smiles makes
my heart so full. GOD IS GOOD! Thanks to everyone who helped in any way at the
carnival. Events like these cannot happen without volunteers!
In September we held Group Sundays. It was a great way to introduce ourselves and
to get to know one another. We played mixed ages group games, and went on a Fall
Scavenger Hunt and found colors that we related to Jesus. We also learned to always
“Be-leave” in Jesus and ways to “Fall” in love with Jesus.
We will begin the Rotation Model Sunday School Curriculum in October. This is a way to teach Bible Stories and concepts through child-friendly, creative, and interactive areas. The name of our rotation is JAM, Jesus and Me. The children will rotate to a different area each week: Creation Station (Art), Sunday’s Diner (Cooking), Godly Games (Games), and Holywood (Stories/Music). They will focus on one story for 4 weeks. Rotation Leaders do not rotate, but stay in one place, preparing one lesson (with some age-appropriate modifications) for the four week rotation. All children will
begin in the Holywood Room and be dismissed to their rotation. The Holywood Room is located downstairs by the elevator. Any questions or concerns about this curriculum, contact Beth Bue.
FAMILY SUNDAY: The third Sunday of each month has been designated as Family Sunday. Our first Family Sunday is October 20. All Sunday School children will participate in the 9:00 a.m. Worship Service. Pre-K children and 4th graders will receive their Bibles. Families and children are encouraged to attend this special Sunday and remain in church for the full service. What a great opportunity to involve our younger youth in worship!
