What’s the Plan?
Our curriculum for the winter/spring will be The Beatitudes: An Illustrated Curriculum. The Beatitudes are part of the Sermon on the Mount that we can read about in the book of Matthew chapter 5. These are essentially short, but powerful descriptions of what it looks like to live life God’s way. During our study, we will read Bible stories, engage with the stories creatively, reflect on questions that will use their imaginations, and work on coloring sheets that will be shared digitally each week. Based on the results of the survey that many of you responded to, we will host a combination of Zoom classes and pre-recorded video lessons while church services remain virtual.
To keep us connected and in community, we will periodically host Zoom Sunday School classes. We hope that you can help your children to log in and enjoy the lesson led by one of their amazing Sunday School teachers and to enjoy seeing their church friends. We’ll play Zoom games, get to know one another, and learn about God’s word. The Zoom links will be shared through email, published in Connect, and also be posted below.

Zoom-fatigue is real, so we will be providing video lessons for your children to watch at a time that is convenient for your family. We hope that you will take time on the Sunday School video dates to print the Illustrated Ministry coloring sheet and to watch and learn along with familiar faces from our church family!

While we wish that we could all be together at church, we certainly hope that in the interim this plan will provide your children with meaningful Bible lessons and a way to feel connected to our church family. We are so grateful to our Sunday School leadership team, Carter Stone and Lauren Walker, and to all of the Sunday School teachers! Please reach out with questions or feedback.
