Walk of Faith

WalkofFaith

Elementary Sunday School

Walk of Faith is our adaptation of the Workshop Rotation Model, which enhances the Sunday School experience for children in 1st through 5th grades.  These classes meet in the Adkins’ Education Building (5) upstairs at the west end of the hallway from 9:40 to 10:40 am. Walk of Faith is designed so that children learn the same scripture and Bible story over a one month period in a different classroom or environment each week. Kindergarten children also experience four to five different workshop lessons each rotation. Their classes meet each Sunday in Building 2, Suite A. The children are assigned to either room 2 or 3 determined by the child’s first initial of the last name.

Walk of Faith logoEach Walk of Faith workshop room offers an environment where volunteers teach in areas where they are gifted and talented.  Adults interested in cooking or science can share talents in Bread of Life or Matter of Faith. As a teacher, volunteers teach the same lesson to a different class for four to five weeks.  Volunteers are also needed to serve as shepherds to welcome the children to class, help with attendance, mission information, and memory verses.  Unlike the teachers, who remain in one room, shepherds will follow the same group of children each week so they can develop relationships with that particular class.

Parents are asked to complete a 2016-2017 registration each year for each child in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Once your child’s form is received, his/her name will be added to the class sign in sheets.  These registration forms are available in each classroom or by asking the class shepherd for a form.

 

Please contact children@fumc-rr.org for more information.

In order for our volunteer teachers and shepherds to celebrate Easter with their families, we will not have Sunday School on April 16th.     

On April 23rd,  we will begin studying lessons on Mary Magdalene.

Memory verse:    “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified.  He has been raised; he is not here.”  Mark 16:6

Mission Updates!
Congratulations on a job well done in January and February on the diaper drive. Children’s Ministry, along with the Ministry of Motherhood group, collected 2,109 diapers for the Austin Diaper Bank!   $162.48 was also collected in Sunday School offering and was donated to the Austin Diaper Bank to purchase additional diapers!  Way to go!

Our current mission is for Sager Brown, a non-profit organization that collects items to make kits. There are health kits full of items people need like combs and toothbrushes. Other kits may be cleaning supply kits or kits to help with newborn babies.

A group of 20 women from our very own church are going to the Sager Brown location in Louisiana this summer with items for health kits. Every toothbrush you bring will go with them! Our goal is 130 toothbrushes. How can you help? Please bring individually packaged toothbrushes (not 2, 3, or more in a pack…just individual ones). The toothbrushes cannot have any advertising on them for dentists or orthodontists…they can just say Crest, or Colgate, etc. You can also bring an offering to Sunday School that will go towards purchasing things the kits will need.

Take a look at the mission tri-fold board in the hallway and feel free to ask Ms. Tammy about it in the hallway.
