The Kids’ Choir is a wonderful opportunity for our covenant children to participate in worship of God through song. In rehearsals throughout the school year, they learn music and prepare for singing during worship, as well as special holiday programs. The children learn music reading skills through the study of solfedge and rhythm, and explore music through the addition of hand chimes to many of the songs. Through all of this, they learn the value of working hard as a team toward a common set of goals, and have a lot of fun along the way. The rehearsals are also followed by a potluck dinner. If you have questions or would like to participate (all children in K-6 are welcome!), contact Sarah Perkins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday School runs September 15, 2019-June 14, 2020, from 9-10AM
We think it is important to cultivate and nurture a love for God in the hearts and minds of our children. Using curricula from the Great Commission Publications, our teachers guide our children through understanding who God is, who we are, and what He has done for us, as seen most fully in the Gospel.
The following are the teachers and class descriptions for 2019-2020.
2 1/2- 4 year olds | Mrs. Salverson, Mrs. Simonson, Mrs. Holman
These little ones will begin in the Old Testament and move on to the Gospels. They will learn that all the stories are all part of one very important book, the Holy Bible, and that this is God’s word, and all interconnected.
Kindergarten and 1st Grade | Mr. and Mrs. Garrison
This fall, Kindergarten and 1st Grade will be learning about the importance of God’s Word. We will use stories from both testaments about people who followed God’s Word and about some who disobeyed. And we will talk about what it means to hide God’s Word in our hearts. In the spring, our theme will be “Loving Jesus,” focusing on believing in the promised savior, trusting Christ for salvation, showing our love for Jesus, and knowing that God loves us. Come join us as we learn from the Bible, sing songs together, and work on memorizing verses!
2nd and 3rd grade | Mrs. Friend
This year, our class will journey into Paul Bunyan’s classic story, Pilgrim’s Progress. As we travel along with Christian to the Celestial City, we will learn spiritual lessons and Biblical truths along the way. Each lesson will include an audio reading of the story, activities, crafts, and songs to help reinforce each portion of the story.
4th and 5th grade | Mr. and Mrs. Perkins
This year the 4th- and 5th-grade Sunday School students will be taking an exciting journey through the tale of Pilgrim’s Progress, John Bunyan’s timeless classic. Through our study, each young pilgrim will come to understand and enjoy Bunyan’s allegorical tale, while also learning and growing from the spiritual lessons and biblical truths discovered along the way. Each week as the students learn of the new obstacles facing Bunyan’s Pilgrim, they will discover that they, too, face similar challenges and that Jesus Christ saves them, leads them, and protects them. Incorporated into our study will be scripture memory, sword drills and hymn singing, as well as a look at the Nicene Creed and how this statement of faith from the early Christian Church outlines what Christian believe.
