The Moses/Exodus rotation for preschool – 5th grade runs October 23 through November 27.

The rotation objective is to bring understanding to children about the part God played in the story of Moses and the Exodus in the history of His people. Knowing how God is committed to His people, we are then able to find and build on our own faith, certain that God is with us always. Important ideas children will learn are:

  1. God called Moses and gave him the power he needed.
  2. Moses and Aaron were messengers of God.
  3. Moses told Pharaoh to “Let my people go!”
  4. Moses proved God’s power through the sending of the plagues.
  5. The people left Egypt in the Exodus.
  6. The miracle of the parting of the Red Sea.

What God did for Moses and his people, God can do for us; even if something seems too big, like the parting of the sea.

Memory verse: Exodus 3:4  God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.'”      

Don’t forget to ask your children what they are learning in Carpenter’s Corner.  It’s a great way to talk together about our faith!

The  Communion rotation for preschool – 5th grade runs through October 16.

 

The rotation objective is to bring understanding to children about the act of Communion and what it represents. At the conclusion of the Passover meal, Jesus broke the bread, as his body was broken, “in memory of me.” He gave them the cup, as his blood was poured out, as “God’s new covenant.” The covenant was the relationship with God through Christ. In using the bread and wine, Jesus gave his followers a special way to Remember Him. The important things the children will learn from this are:

  1. Remembrance – of Christ’s sacrifice
  2. Celebration – of the new covenant
  3. Ritual – the practice of the church that binds us together

Memory verse: Luke 22:19 “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”     

Don’t forget to ask your children what they are learning in Carpenter’s Corner.  It’s a great way to talk together about our faith!

The  23rd Psalm rotation for preschool – 5th grade runs through August 28.

The 23rd Psalm is a classic piece of scripture that has spoken to people over the centuries. The agrarian culture, the fight for survival, the presence of enemies: these were realities during Biblical times. The images in the psalms spoke to the people reading them; the customs were familiar. The affirmation of the presence of God in some tangible form was a much-needed litany.

The words of this Psalm still speak to us today. It sets forth a rich picture of God’s steadfast love and desire for us, and therefore, the very traits of the Messiah. An image of the Messiah in both the Old and New Testaments is that of the Good Shepherd. He is the one who guides, protects, and provides. He searches for us when we go astray. He resides with us in our deepest valley. The Hebrew prophets, the psalmists, and the evangelists all used this metaphor as a symbol of God’s active participation in our lives.

The memory verse is the entire Psalm.  To know this psalm by heart is to carry with us a scripture that will speak to us in our time of need.

Don’t forget to ask your children what they are learning in Carpenter’s Corner.  It’s a great way to talk together about our faith!
