Sunday School for Children
SUNDAY SCHOOL 9 AM!
September 24th will be the first day of the regular Sunday School year and starts at 9 am on Sundays. For those 3 and 4 year olds, we still love to have you join us, but ask that an adult attends with them. For those parents bringing K-6, please consider joining our adult Café for fellowship and discussion at 9. Café is the room on the Lower Level near the kitchen entrance.
K-2 is in the Children's Room (previously the parlor, room under the sanctuary - through the glass doors, down flight of stairs, head towards Cafe, first door on right, down the hall to second door on left) and 3-6 grade SS is in the Music Room (through the glass doors, up one flight of stairs, through wooden doors, take a right to first door on left).
Spark is a Sunday school faith formation program designed for kids age 3 through Grade 6. It is a three-year curriculum, with fall, winter and spring trimesters each year which is repeated again at a higher level to complete six years. The lessons correspond to the Revised Common Lectionary.
Each Sunday school lesson for the Pre-K through the Second Graders lasts 45 minutes and is comprised of three 15 minute activities: an individual craft/worksheet activity; a multi-class group activity; and a separate class lesson. Upon arrival they are engaged individually in making crafts, followed by working on puzzle worksheets, reviewing last week’s lesson. For the next fifteen minutes, the entire class gathers for a multi-class group activity which includes songs led by Ms. Joyce, the offering, the Lord’s Prayer and the introduction to the lesson in the form of acting-out the bible story or playing a game. The last fifteen minutes are spent in groups, according to age, where the Bible story is read and a lesson pamphlet is completed. It has been faith filled and fun. Class are held in the Children's Room, under the sanctuary.
The older children meet in the Music Room on the main floor. The older children (Third through Sixth grade) meet in the Music Room on the main floor. Ms. Joyce and Ms. Dani lead activities so they can learn about our weekly Bible Story and discuss what it means for their daily lives. This is a great way to meet other children in the church.
We are combining a new youth group with Trinity Lutheran Church of Havertown! This will be grades 6-12. The first meeting will take place in the Temple Lutheran Church Youth Room (Middle Floor between the Music Room and the Conference Room) on Sunday October 8 at 6:00 pm. If you have any questions, please reach out to the church office. We hope for this community of our youth to give them opportunities to grow in faith.
