We have two age groups for children's Sunday School at Grace:
GODLY PLAY (age 3 - gr. 2)
FIRST FOLLOWERS (gr. 3 - 5)
The children gather inbetween 9am and 11am worship, September - May.
Several years ago, Grace Sunday School began a new curriculum called, 'Godly Play,' utilizing figurines and small sets to introduce the Bible through a sense of wondering.
First Followers, a program designed for our members in grades 3 through 5, is a bridge between our successful Godly Play classes and our Confirmation program. First Followers builds on the Godly Play format, as students are asked to discuss and share their thoughts on the day's Gospel lesson, while introducing new skills, such as using the Bible and drawing parallels between everyday life and the readings. Opportunities for relationship-building are included in every session as well, as we encourage participants to begin relationships that will last into adulthood and emphasize the importance of fostering community.
At 10am, all Sunday School-aged children are welcomed into the Grace sanctuary for 15 mintues of music time. They then process out to their classes until 10:50am.
We offer communion classes once a year for the children, who celebrate their coursework with receiving communion and a new children's bible each Easter Sunday.
If you have any questions, or would like to participate in a class, email Liz, our Coordinator, HERE.
We hope to welcome your family to Grace!
