Gospel Project Sunday school

Nursery through kindergarten classes offered during 9am worship.

Nursery through 5th grade classes offered during 11am worship.

Why this curriculum? Because every lesson points to Jesus, and children are learning stories from the entire Bible – even the tough ones – in age appropriate ways. This allows children to very simply experience the full breadth of the Gospel message. As they grow into youth group, these lessons will be familiar, allowing them to further unpack and understand the challenges that all of humanity faces even today. Biblical relevancy and faith formation starts early and is a great gift!

Please see Tina Ritchie with any questions, or if you would like to be added to the weekly email lessons and family talking points.

JAM “Jesus And Me” is a character education Sunday school program during 11a.m. worship for children preschool – 5th grade that explores living in the Fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

We kicked off the school year with a lock-in where we created a banner. Other activities included discussion on what love looks and feels like, experiencing joy and peace through music, practicing patience during preparation for the Christmas Pageant, making affirmation posters of our friends, creating a Kindness Newsletter, and having a food drive to show God’s goodness.

Below are a few pictures from our classes.

 

During holiday weekends or special services, class time for children after the Children’s Message in worship will be as follows:

May 28 – Memorial weekend: All children will be dismissed to video rm.

June 4 – Pentecost:  Preschool only in video room

July 2 – 4th of July weekend: All children will be dismissed to video rm.

Aug 6 – Youth summer recap: Preschool only in video room

Sept 3 – Labor Day weekend: All children will be dismissed to video rm.

All other Sunday’s, children will have regular class time.

The Bible rotation runs April 30 – May 21. The children will learn how the Bible came to be, understand its structure, and practice using it. It is important we learn how to use the Bible in order to understand what it has to say to us. Psalm 119:105 says “Your Word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path.”

Memory verse: 2 Timothy 3:15 “Ever since you were a child, you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to give you wisdom.”

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!
