A United Methodist Congregation
Rotation Sunday School for Elementary Age Children
We use the Rotation format for grades 1-4. A magical ferry boat takes children to a different learning center each week.
These centers are:
· "Bible Rama Drama” where children act out bible stories.
· "Movin' Groovin' Mountain of Love" – A place to sing or move creatively, enjoy a game, or to do a children’s mission project.
· "Creation Station" where creative art and cooking abound.
· “The Exploration Station” where science activities help children experience bible stories in a new way.
· “The Sea Creature's Cinema," complete with popcorn and a video that brings the Bible story of the month to life.
Our fifth graders, meeting in Room 211, are taught by Billy Darden and Clem Davis who spends a year giving an overview of the bible. Our sixth graders who meet in Room 210, are taught by Ann Mallicote and Tricia Taylor. They focus on what it means to live as a Christian 24/7, covering the life and teachings of Jesus.
How to check-in Elementary Children on Sunday mornings:
On Sunday morning, children gather from 9:45 to 10:05 at “Lift Off Landing”, Room 209, at the top of the staircase near the sanctuary, for an opening that helps us focus on the day’s story. Children go on in to the room. We ask adults to please sign them in at the tables in the landing by the elevators. This helps us know where to find adults, and also helps us keep track of allergies.
Rev. Christina, our Minister of Children’s Discipleship, along with an outstanding team of volunteers looks forward to welcoming your children on Sunday Mornings. There is a special check-in table at the doorway to room 209 where new families are welcomed.
Where to pick up your child:
After our Sunday School opening, your child will be guided by class shepherds to their learning center for the morning. To pick up your child you will look for their class banner hanging outside of their doorway.
