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 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. ***Parents, please walk your children up to their classroom and make sure they get signed in.   We want to keep all children safe!   Thank you!

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

Our current study in the fall Walk of Faith rotation is Daniel!

Memory verse:   

In the same way that he had always done, he knelt down in prayer three times a day giving thanks to God. Daniel 6:10b

Children’s Ministry Fall Mission
We are excited to announce we are participating in the church wide Thanksgiving bag mission again this year!  It is not just a mission for elementary age children. Everyone from preschoolers to adults can bring food items to help needy families in our own community!   We are going to do our part in Children’s Sunday School. Each grade is asked to bring a different item and we will see how many bags we can put together.  The grades are having a friendly competition to see which grade can bring the most items!
  • PK & Kinder: Cans of  fruit (1 lb) or  cans of cranberry sauce
  • 1st Grade: Cans of  corn, green beans, or sweet potatoes
  • 2nd Grade: Stuffing mix (14 -16 oz. bag) or  6 oz. boxes
  • 3rd Grade: Boxes of Jiffy cornbread mix
  • 4th Grade: Large boxes of instant potatoes
  • 5th Grade: Brownie mix or other boxed  dessert mix
Beginning October 8, each time a child brings a food item, or donates money in the Sunday School offering, they will have the opportunity to write their name on a link that we will use to make a paper chain in the Walk of Faith hallway!   To date, FIRST GRADERS are still winning, but FOURTH GRADE is catching up!   Who will be winning after this Sunday?
