DSCN1822What’s Sunday School About at Memorial?

Here at Memorial, we seek for our Sunday School ministry to be engaging and fun, while still emphasizing the biblical narrative that supports and nurtures faith. We have weekly classes for all children Preschool-6th grade.

1-3

Class begins at 10:30 and runs until 11:30 each week.

The learning doesn’t end when the kids leave on Sunday mornings. The children’s weekly leaflet from class encourages the entire family to engage faith outside of worship.

Our Sunday School weekly lessons follow the common lectionary, so parents and kids leave each Sunday with the same topics fresh in their minds. All of this is geared towards creating points of contact in which families can grow in faith together.

Whirl

We utilize the Whirl curriculum for our weekly lessons. It provides various activities each week that make kids examine the stories in different ways. Activities can range from listening, to drawing, to acting out specific scenes.

Additionally, as children get older, the curriculum leads children to connect what they are learning to their everyday lives.

Children will also have the chance to sing on a weekly basis, and our Sunday School kids sing in worship once a month. For children in grades 1-6, we also have a children’s choir that rehearses on Wednesday evenings. You can find more info about children’s choir here.

Interested in signing up your children to participate?

Registration is handled online, here. Our church ID is: memoriallutheran.

Even if you do not sign up, all children are welcome to participate in Sunday School at Memorial.

What if Your Kids Are Younger Than Sunday School Age?

We offer the Splash curriculum for all families with children from ages 0-36 months. This is an at home curriculum that provides monthly thoughts and activities as well as a music CD each year. If you would like to use the Splash curriculum in your home, please contact Nick, or leave a voicemail (651)436-1138 x14.

Young children are also encouraged to come forward for Children’s Time during 10 am worship each week.

Interested in teaching?

We are always looking for dedicated adults to inspire the faith of children at Memorial. If you think that could be you, simply contact Nick.
