Ages 2 & 3
Because we have so many children this age we started a new class to serve them! We gather in classroom #1 at the end of the education wing hall at 9:00-9:50 a.m. on Sunday mornings. We use the Sparkhouse curriculum called Whirl.
Every Whirl lesson follows a four-part sequence: Welcome, Hear, Respond, and Launch (WHRL!). Each week, kids and leaders start their time together by identifying where they are in the church year and watching an animated video to set up the lesson. Next, they dive into the Whirl Story Bible or Whirl NRSV Bible together, respond to the scripture lesson with creative leaflet activities, and circle up to review the lesson and pray before being sent out.
Mindy Boynton, Director of Youth and Children Ministry, teaches this class.
