CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL

The Basics of Sunday School @ Memorial

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 10:45 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 revised 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.

Prayer Partners

Prayer Partners meet monthly and provide an opportunity for adults in the congregation to build relationships with children through prayer.

Each child is paired with an adult prayer partner. They meet, discuss some highs and lows followed by praying for one another. These brief meetings lay a groundwork for continued relationships as these children grow in faith.

If you are interested in serving as a prayer partner, please contact Nick.
