“God’s Plan” is our theme for the 2017-2018 Sunday School year.
Children are encouraged to participate in memorizing Bible passages. Memory books with various length passages will be available Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Children will receive Sonshine Shop Bucks for memory work recited. Children can earn “Bucks” by attending, reciting memory passages, and bringing friends. The Sonshine Shop will be open the 4th Sunday of the month between early service and 9:30.
Rotation Station is a Bible History curriculum but covers the essential Bible Lessons in a thematic approach as opposed to chronologically. Rotations session themes are usually covered for four weeks but sessions can be shorter or longer depending on how many rotations we have connected with that theme.
Opening Station: This is where children gather each week for praise & worship as the lesson is introduced. We sing, tell stories, and begin thinking about our lesson.
Memory Mayhem: Children can get memory books to work on learning essential Biblical truths by heart. Teachers listen to children recite verses and children can earn points for the “Sonshine Shop.”
Samuel’s Storytime: This is the most “traditional” rotation where the lesson is taught directly. Student will cover all 4 points of the lesson in this rotation the week they are there.
Creation Station: A craft that ties into that rotation’s them and reinforces the learning that is taking place.
Bible Book Binders: Student will dress up as characters in the rotation’s lesson for a photo shoot. Then they will create scrapbook pages to retell the main points from the rotation.
Bethlehem Bakery: This rotation involves the children doing a project in the kitchen that, once again, reinforces the lesson of the rotation they are studying.
Galilee Games: In this rotation, children play a game that has a lesson attached that directly connects to what is being taught in the rotation.
Martha’s Movies: A video retelling the lesson complete with been bag chairs, popcorn, and juice!
