Beginner Sunday Learning Center

This year’s Beginners class consists of scriptures from the Old Testament in the curriculum “Old Testament Stories for Young Children” from Desiring God Ministries by Sally Michael. Our kids start the class by doing a prayer where they praise and thank God. This is followed by snack time in which the kids are taught to share and serve one another. We then proceed to review last week's lesson before moving on to the new lesson. Throughout the lesson children engage in arts & craft activities related to the story and conclude the lesson by playing games in which they review the material they have learned.

The Beginner Sunday Learning Center class meets every Sunday from 9:30am to 10:45am. This class is ideal for children age’s four to seven as it incorporates a range of hands on activities, which help reinforce what they have learned about Christ. During the class children listen to a Bible story and then have the opportunity to draw, paint, act and/or recreate a part of the story using Legos and puppets. The purpose of the class is to enhance children’s understanding about our Lord Jesus Christ in a way that is fun and engaging. During special Holidays such as Thanksgiving, the last 15 minutes of the class are designated to completing a special project. For example, this year the children will have the opportunity to write on a ceramic tile something they would like to thank God for. They will then decorate and keep the tile which they can hang anywhere in their house. These activities during the Holidays help to reinforce that our Lord is present at all times and give children a visual reminder, which they have created.
