Beginning on Rally Day, September 27, Sunday School for children will start at 10:00 a.m (Please note the new time). A core group of teachers will dig right into the curriculum and take the time necessary to explore the weekly lesson. A new curriculum will be offered from Augsburg Fortress. The curriculum follows a four-part sequence: Welcome, Hear, Respond and Launch. Each week, kids and leaders start their time together by identifying where they are in the church year and watching an animated video to set up the lesson. Next, they dive into the Whirl Story Bible or Whirl NRSV Bible together, respond to the scripture lesson with creative leaflet activities, and circle up to review the lesson and pray before being sent out.
Why we chose the Whirl curriculum?
- Bible-centered approach
- Characters kids can relate to
- Age-appropriate resources
- Lectionary simplified
- Connects to the wider church
- Faith that sends out
