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.
Each 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 2017-2018 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.

June 4th is promotion Sunday for Elementary children! All children finishing 1st through 5th grade, will move up to their new grade level on June 4th. Children who have just finished kindergarten will still meet in Pod A. During the Sunday School hour, the teachers will take them upstairs in Building 5 to the Walk of Faith Sunday School rooms. They children will get a brief tour and then go to room 217, where their parents can pick them up at 10:40. Preschool age children will not promote until August 20th. We will not have a kindergarten class during the summer.
On July 9th, we will begin our fun study on Dr. Seuss! All classes will have the same lessons each week for the summer and classes will be combined, depending on attendance. We will return to the workshop rotational model in the fall.
Memory verse: “He is your praise, he is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things that your own eyes have seen.” Deuteronomy 10:21
Who likes to change into comfy, cozy pajamas at the end of the day? How does wearing your favorite pajamas feel? We want kids everywhere to get a happy, relaxed feeling by having new pajamas to wear at night. The Pajama Program helps collect and give children pajamas. For the next few weeks we will use any offering you bring to buy pajamas. You can also bring in a brand new pair of pajamas and put them in the basket in the hallway. Let’s help children everywhere get a good night’s sleep in new pajamas! Feel free to bring the trifold mission board from the hallway into the classroom to show the class. Larger sizes (12/14) are especially needed! No gowns please but shorts and t-shirts are okay!
