In-Person Sunday School Information

Sunday School is important!

This is where the children come together to hear, read, and learn the stories in the Bible. Each week your child responds to the Bible story in his/her journal. The Bible is an amazing book filled with stories, and lessons that apply to our lives today. God is speaking to us through this book.

What does Sunday School at Powell UMC look like?

* All children MUST be registered online by the THURSDAY at Noon before Sunday Morning

*Check-In Procedure will begin at 9:20am:

– All children will check-in at the “Check-In” table located down the ramp by the preschool playground outside of room 101/102
– Registration paperwork will be checked
– Temperatures will be taken for all children
– Children will receive hand sanitizer (you are welcome to bring your own)
– Masks must be worn, if forgotten, we have masks for children
– Then children will walk to their assigned classrooms where the leader is waiting for him or her in the classroom
 
*Classroom Structure:
– All classroom sizes are limited due to Social Distance guidelines
– Children will find a seat and stay in that seat to minimize contact
– All children are given a bag of crayons
(children will put his/her name on the bag and will use his/her specific crayons every time they come into Sunday School)
– Children are welcomed with a coloring sheet, word search & activity sheet at his/her seat (they will work on this until the class begins)
-The children will remain in his/her classroom the entire class.
 
*In Sunday School your child will:
-Be introduced to the Month’s Focus & Bible Verse
-Be reminded of last week’s story (this provides consistency & background)
-Listen to & watch Contemporary Christian Music Videos
– Hear the Bible Story from the Bible,
(2nd – 5th Graders are encouraged to bring their own Bibles to class, to learn how to find, read, follow along and to use their own Bible)
– Watch the Bible story on a Video – “Celebrate Wonder”
– Hear a Message about the story from Ms. Rebecca
– Each child will journal about the Bible story in his/her own journal
The journal stays in the classroom! They answer the question…
1-What part of this story stuck out to YOU the most and why?
It is so important that children are given the opportunity to respond to the story.  This allows them to connect with the Bible in a personal way!

– Prayer

Curriculum: Powell UMC uses the “Celebrate Wonder” by Cokesbury Bible Story Videos.  However, Ms. Rebecca develops her own curriculum around each week’s particular text, focus and verse.  The month’s focus, verse and lessons are always given to the families ahead of time to look at read for themselves. 

 
*Pick Up Procedure:
– PLEASE pick up your children immediately after Worship
– All children will be picked up from the same place you “Checked–In”
– Adults will remain at the table, we will call to your child from his/her classroom and they will come to you
– All children will sanitize their hands before he/she leave the hallway
(We are trying to reduce the amount of contact in the narrow hallways)
 
Sunday School is packed full…these children are listening, hearing, watching and responding to God and the stories in the Bible!
It is AWESOME!

Children in Worship
Children are always welcome to worship with their families every Sunday. In addition, there are periodic Family Worship Sundays where children are invited to go to worship instead of Sunday School. To accommodate families with differing needs, We offer the following options for children in worship:
 
A Quiet Room for families with children is also available at the rear of the sanctuary.
The Nursery is available for children birth to age 5 (not in Kindergarten). Available at all worship services (9:30 and 11;00am)
 
Sunday School Leaders…Come and Serve
 
**We have amazing and consistent Sunday School leaders, However, there is always room for more help.
Are you interested in leading our children in a relationship with Christ?
The summer is a wonderful opportunity to shadow leaders and meet the children. If you are interested in shadowing leaders this summer…please contact Ms. Rebecca!
We are always looking for wonderful substitutes leaders and leaders to “take turns” leading.
