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 2018-2019 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 the Walk of Faith Hallways all summer!  One form per family.  One media release per child.

***Parents, please walk your children up to their classroom and sign them in.   We want to keep all children safe!   Thank you!

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

Children’s Ministry Missions

In September and October, Children’s Ministry purchased 29 pairs of SHOES THAT GROW for needy children.   These shoes will be able to grow up to five sizes, extending the length of the life of the shoes.  Congratulations on your great efforts.

In November and December, our mission is SharingHappyBirthdays.org.  Every child deserves a birthday celebration!  There are children in foster care and homeless children in Central Texas whose special day passes each year without being recognized.  The goal of Happy Birthdays organization is to bring a little birthday joy to as many children as possible.  Each Sunday School grade level will provide all the goodies for an entire birthday party in a box!  Any offering will go towards a gift card for the child who receives the box.  Class supply updates will be posted on the Sunday School doors and sent via email.  As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, let’s provide supplies for other children to celebrate birthdays too!
