Kids' Kingdom (Grades 1-5)

All children in grades 1-5 are encouraged to attend Kids’ Kingdom classes in classroom G in the education building at 10:00am.  This fall the Kids’ Kingdom group will start by studying the Old Testament stories of Gideon and Samson.  The study of these stories will include constructing an origami frog to “Fully Rely on God”, making bandanas, a readers’ theater titled, Samson Man, building a temple with blocks and watching a video titled Samson and Delilah. Later in the fall, the study will include the birth of John the Baptist and the birth of Jesus. During that unit the children will bake, complete a Bible challenge game, a readers’ theater titled Breaking News, paint glass votive candle holders and create a “Special Me” picture.   All of those fun activities are designed to reinforce the lesson and message presented in the Bible story with applications for the students in their daily lives. Kids’ Kingdom follows a rotation model with Christine Ronning, Amy Wacker and Mary Ellen Simicek all serving as teachers, Shan Harris assisting and Chris Abbott organizing the lessons and overseeing the class.
