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.

 

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

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 May 28th, we will start our summer lessons on Fruit of the Spirit.   All classes will have the same lessons each week for the summer.  We will return to the workshop rotational model in the fall.

Memory verse:    “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”  Galatians 5:22-23a

Mission Updates!
Thank you to everyone who brought toothbrushes for Sager Brown!  We collected 100 toothbrushes!  Way to go!   The fifth graders also collected 27 combs and 520 band aids!   The missionaries from our church will be traveling to Sager Brown in early June to make the delivery of toothbrushes and other items they have been collecting!  Our summer mission is the  Pajama Program!  Our summer offering will be used to purchase pajamas.  You can donate money or you can bring in pajamas.  Larger sizes are requested.   The Pajama Program provides pajamas and books to children, living in very difficult situations, who likely have never owned a pair of pajamas!
