Age 3 through 6th grade.
Typically, children will join their families in worship on the 1st Sunday of each month for Communion Sunday/Family Worship. It is our hope that they join their families every week during our time apart.
While I write this, it is a bit chilly, but the sun is shining and the daffodils are in full bloom at my house and spring is on its way😊 While we’re still unable to be together in person, I’m grateful for the technology and ways that we are all able to share in God’s love and learn about the stories of the Bible.
I continue to add lessons to the Virtual Sunday School Website. The month of May has included a rotation lesson on Prayer. We took the word PRAY and broke it down into the following to help us remember different parts of prayer: P stands for praising God, R stands for repentance, A stands for asking and Y stands for yielding or listening to God. Activities have included making praise instruments, playing a forgiveness game, using a prayer calendar and taking a Family Prayer Scavenger Walk. We watched some videos on prayer; a movie called “Angels in the Outfield” and sang lots of songs involving prayer!
On Sunday, May 17, 12 Sunday school students joined me for a live Zoom Sunday school class where we learned about the A in prayer through the story of Hannah in 1 Samuel, made prayer origami fortune tellers to help us say our prayers, and played summer time Bingo with Hangman to remember more about our Bible story😊 It was so wonderful to see the kids learning and having fun!
Since we are unsure as to when we will get to meet again in person, I am currently sending out a survey to our families to see what they like/don’t like about the Sunday school website and/or if they would like more live Zoom Sunday school meetings.
Typically, after I add a new lesson to the Sunday school website, I resend the link out to our families, so they know that a new lesson has been added. Families can find a time when it is convenient for them to access the lesson and have some fun learning about the stories of the Bible. I also repost the link to our church Facebook page and it is located on our church website as well! I appreciate any feedback, as this is a work in progress, and I am learning as I go, so if you have any suggestions on how I can make the site better, please let me know!

I will continue to pray for all our families during this time and hope that you all stay well and value the time you have together. God bless and may He bring us all together again soon!
