Sunday Mornings for Children grades K-5

FaithQuest Sunday School

FaithQuest is the Sunday School program for children in kindergarten through 5th grade. FaithQuest is based on the Workshop Rotation Model for Christian Education. Recognizing that children learn differently and through repetition, major Bible stories and concepts are taught using activities that actively engage all the senses. Students hear the same Bible lesson repeated for a 2, 3, or 4 week period as they "rotate" through different learning areas to experience it through several different ways: art, Bible skills, cooking, drama, movement, audiovisual, computers, music, and storytelling.

FaithQuest students gather in the Sanctuary at 9:15 am for an opening and then leave with their Shepherds for their workshops. At 10:15 am, students are picked up by their families.

For more information or to volunteer, call Director of Christian Education Stephanie Foltz (233-0295), email her, or sign up on the bulletin board located between the Toddler and the Crib Rooms.
