Sunday Morning Faith Formation

Sunday Morning Learning

This year, our Sunday School classes will begin at 9:45am and will dismiss at 10:15. During this half-hour, your children will explore the bible through age-appropriate activities, designed to help them understand what the bible says and what it means in their lives.Our children's learning time will be divided into five main groups:
  • Middle School (6th - 8th grades), 
  • Carpenter's Crew (2nd - 5th grades)
  • Building Blocks (pre-K - 1st grade)
  • Shepherd's Flock (3-year-olds) 
  • Cradle Roll (birth to 2-year-olds)

Middle School - This class will explore each week’s scripture through reading and conversation. They will bring their life-experiences into class and discover who they are becoming in God’s Kingdom. This class will meet in the modular.

Carpenter’s Crew - Nativity’s 2nd through 5th graders will meet in the north classroom of the north room of the Fellowship Hall (furthest from the coffee). They will sing a fun song or two together, and then the 4th and 5th graders will be led as a class to a downstairs classroom for a 20 minute lesson while the 2nd and 3rd graders stay in this room for their lesson. These groups will be using their bibles to explore Bible stories. The 4th and 5th graders are asked to bring the Spark NRSV Bibles that they received as third graders, and the 2nd and 3rd graders are asked to bring the Spark Story Bible that they received as kindergarteners. There will be extra Bibles available to use in class for those that do not bring their own. All of these students are to be picked up by a parent in the north room of the Fellowship Hall at 10:15. 

Building Blocks -The children in pre-K through 1st grade will meet in the Preschool Big Room for their Sunday School class. During this half-hour, the children will hear Bible stories that relate back to what they hear in church each Sunday. They will sing songs, move, and play in ways that will strengthen what they are learning. Additionally, they will learn songs that they will share with the congregation throughout the year. Parents are to drop off and pick up their children in the Preschool Big Room.  Shepherd’s Flock -In this class, three-year-olds will meet each week in the classroom across from the nursery. In this class, the students will hear Bible stories and participate in activities and crafts that relate to those stories. They will engage in Godly play, learning how to share with each other and enjoying fellowship with one another. 

Cradle Roll - The youngest members of Nativity, from birth through two years old, will gather each week in the nursery. Here they will listen to Bible stories and engage in Godly play with one another.
