Walk of Faith


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 2019-2020 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 be learning about The Ten Commandments in November.  Please see the boards in the hallways or on bulletin boards around campus for the rotation schedules.
 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!

First Church Kids in Mission

Great job on our first fall mission for Texas Humane Heroes. They are a place dogs and cats go that need a home. Texas Humane Heroes helps get the animals healthy and happy so they can get adopted. The shelter is only run by donations people give them, whether it is actual items the animals need or a money donation.

Children in Walk of Faith made toys for dogs and cats one day as part of one Sunday School lesson. All during September and October, children brought supplies for dogs and cats living at Texas Human Heroes, a place that lodges animals without homes until they can be adopted. 3rd-5th graders who attended the October J-Team event made dog biscuits in our church kitchen! They had so much fun and the dogs loved the treats! Animals in the shelter had great time with the hand-made toys as well. The children were so excited about this mission!

Our mission for November and December is Sleep in Heavenly Peace. We are collecting new twin-size sheets, blankets, comforters and pillows. Watch for information on our future church-wide mission for Sleep in Heavenly Peace, when volunteers will be constructing twin bunk beds for area children currently do not have their own bed. New bedding we collect will be given to the children with their new bed! Any money donated will also go to Sleep in Heavenly Peace.
