Kids' Kingdom (Grades 1-5)
Join us this fall on Sundays at 10:00am for Kids' Kingdom. Class will resume September 8, 2019.
Kids’ Kingdom Christian Formation is for youth in grades 1-5. Classes meet each Sunday 10:00 AM in classroom G on the second floor of the St. Mark’s Education Building. Our study this fall will be the Old Testament. Our focus will be Moses. The goal each week is to provide the students with the scripture and a lesson that has application to their daily lives. The accompanying activities are designed to be interesting, stimulating and something that will help the children remember and internalize the Bible story. Activities this fall will include a Moses mosaic, baby Moses baskets, a drama titled “Moses – Baby to Burning Bush”, games of recall, a cardboard Moses, baking unleavened bread, making Ten Commandment tablets, a second drama titled “The Moses Story” and the video Prince of Egypt. Students will have an opportunity occasionally to tell about their projects and activities to the parish before the 10:30 service. Again we will be using the rotation format with one adult as the lead teacher and another adult as an assistant each week. This fall we are very fortunate to have Mary Anne Simicek, Shan Harris and Amy Wacker as teachers and Rhonda Yamauchi, Helen Tanner and Ruthie Hurta as assistants. Without the gift of their time the Kids’ Kingdom program could not exist. We are indeed grateful for their participation.
Please contact Chris Abbott with any questions about the Kids’ Kingdom program. Parents are welcome to join the class at any time. The door is always open.
