Children’s Sunday School

What’s the Plan?

Our curriculum for the fall will be An Illustrated Earth: Celebrating God’s Creation. 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. An Illustrated Earth helps children to remember to celebrate God’s creation while they enjoy the outdoors. They 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.

Zoom Classes

Once a month, we will 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. The videos will have devotions from each of our pastors, Godly Play stories from Jan Scott Sweetenburg, and music videos from Cameron Moore, Amy House, and Lana Moeller. 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!

Curriculum Overview

This chart will let you know what is happening each Sunday, whether we are having a live Zoom class or have provided a video for you and your family to watch at a time that is convenient for you. Please be on the lookout for emails, weekly Connect updates, and on the church’s website for log-in information.

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.
