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 in Walk of Faith will continue to learn about  Paul on the Road in May.  Crossing Point continues for 5th Grade students.    Instead of following the Walk of Faith curriculum with our younger elementary kids, our 5th graders will be meeting in the same room each week with the same two teachers for an in depth and fun exploration of Bible stories.    In the past few years this has become a time for our 5th graders to bond together and make friends as they approach youth group age.
Promotion Sunday is May 26th for kindergarten- 5th Grade.  Crossing Point students will promote to the Student Ministry program.  Promotion for preschool is in August.

 More volunteers are always needed when we have full classrooms (and we LOVE full classrooms!)  Please contact Tammy@fumc-rr.org if you can give even one Sunday/month to teach or shepherd.  All materials are provided.  You can check the hallway bulletin boards when you arrive to know where to go!
In order for more families to attend Resurrection Celebration, there will not be Sunday School for grades K-4 on April 14th.  Only Crossing Point for 5th grade will meet.  There is no Sunday School for any age on April 21st so that families can enjoy Easter Sunday together.

Children’s Ministry Missions

March through May, Children’s Ministry mission will support the Round Rock Area Serving Center.  We are hoping to help get them stocked up before summer when children will not be eating lunch at school.  Nonperishable items to be donated include:  peanut butter, canned fruit, vegetables, soup or meat, pasta, beans, rice, toilet paper and diapers.
