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.


Elementary age children started a new rotation on Sunday, January 7th. We hope your child can join us as we study The Healing Miracles.
Our memory verse is:
 
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free.”                                                                                                                                                                           Luke 4:18

Third grade students were in Acts of Faith last Sunday. Using puppets, they enacted a paralyzed man being lowered through a rooftop, in order to get close to Jesus in hopes of being healed. We hope you can join us for the rest of the month to experience the Healing Miracles in exciting ways!

 Children’s Ministry Mission for Spring is the Heifer Project
The Kids for Christ Council has selected the Heifer International project for the spring mission. For the entire spring semester, all children’s Sunday School offerings, will go to purchase livestock for hungry families. Each class selected a certain animal as their “goal” to purchase. Make sure to ask your child what animal their class is working towards and check the bulletin board in the Walk of Faith hallway for updates.  Heifer International puts faith into action with its time proven principle of “passing on the gift.” Every family who receives livestock agrees to pass on one or more of its animal’s offspring to another neighbor in need.
Goals:
Kindergarten-flock of chickens  $60
1st Graders could not agree, so the boys selected a pig $120 and the girls selected rabbits $60
2nd graders debated between a heifer and fish, so they will try to raise $300 for 3 schools of fish first and possibly move on to a heifer!
3rd graders- Llama $150
4th graders- Llama $150
5th graders- Heifer $500
Each class has high expectations to reach the goal of purchasing their chosen animal by May 20th!

Crossing Point returns!

We are excited to announce the return of Crossing Point for all 5th graders! Beginning January 7, 2018, 5th graders will combine into one Sunday School class for the spring semester. Crossing Point is a class that will delve deeper into the Bible using fun and challenging curriculum. You will have an exciting new lesson each week that will include Scripture, fun activities, and even some mission work! Cassandra Ricks and Stella Roberts will be teaching Crossing Point. 5th graders will begin meeting in Bldg. 5-202 on January 7.

This class is intended to be a transition from Walk of Faith to Sunday School to the Youth Ministry Sunday School class that you will start attending in June. We hope to see you there! Please contact Tammy Parks, tammy@fumc-rr.org, if you would like more information.
