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.


February lessons are on The Last Supper.   We celebrate he return of Crossing Point 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.
February rotation schedule is still a bit fluid, as we are trying to split a few of the large classes into two classes.  More volunteers are always needed when we have full classrooms (we love it!)  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!
Our Memory verse for February is This is my body, which is given for you.  Do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19b

Children’s Ministry Missions

In January and February, Children’s Ministry mission will support the Footprints program.  The Footprints Children’s Grief Ministry mission is to serve children dealing with grief in a Faith-based environment that is safe and accepting of all emotions and to help the child identify and begin to understand and deal with the emotions regarding the loss.  Footprints Children’s Grief Ministry is a free community-wide program serving children between the ages of 6 and 18 and their families who are experiencing grief and loss due to death or divorce.
