I am pleased to say we have had another successful year in the Holy Cross Sunday School children's program. Thanks to all of our wonderful and dedicated teachers and parents. We have had new faces in the Epic Wave's class and Godly Play this year as our little ones are moving up. We started Godly Play three years ago where we share bible stories with the children using interactive materials. Story telling is such a powerful tool in learning and it has been very effective.
I am also excited to announce a new change this Fall. We will be rolling out a new curriculum for the Surf Rider class. This class is for 3rd through 5th grade. The new curriculum is from SparkHouse and is called Whirl. It includes a fun and short DVD story, work sheets and Whirl bibles. The curriculum follows the lectionary running in a three year cycle. Most of the children in this class have been in Godly Play for three years and have a good knowledge base of the biblical stories. The teachers and I felt the need for a more in-depth bible study for this age group, but presenting it in a fun way. We are excited about Whirl and think it will be a hit with the children. Kimberly McIrney will continue to teach this class.
Please join me in thanking all of the Sunday school volunteers for their hard work and dedication. There are about 20 of us.
Blessings and peace,
