The Sunday School program at FCC strives to offer a welcoming and engaging experience to children each week, focusing on the development of their knowledge of Biblical stories, themes, and of God's love. Guided by the Ministry of Christian Education, the Sunday School focuses on providing age-appropriate lessons to children and offers many different ways of experiencing the stories from the Bible. Typically, the curricula focuses on Old Testament stories in the fall and then spends December focusing on Jesus' birth, Advent and practicing for the annual Christmas pageant. In winter, the classes focus on the New Testament, and then shift to focus on an Easter related theme. Less structured and less formal classes are provided in summertime. In 2013 the Sunday School will be trying out a new curricula, Holy Moly, by SparkHouse. For more information, visit wearesparkhouse.org. This multi-modal and engaging program provides many ways for children to learn vital Bible stories while thinking about how to incorporate God into their everyday lives. If you are interested in teaching with the Sunday School, please email Laura Rodas at LNash8@aol.com. Even teaching one Sunday per year can be rewarding for you and helpful for the Sunday School program.
