B23 Zoom Time Summer 2020
June 1, July 6 and August 3, 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. over Zoom or in the Faith Lutheran Church Nursery
We all need fellowship and opportunities to interact with our friends. What better way than to do Zoom calls with parents and their little ones as we read fun Bible stories, sing songs and do fun activities! Sign up to get the Zoom link by following our Sign Up Genius Link
Parents and children from birth to three years old have been learning a lot about faith through our B23 Facebook Group but we know that fellowship is also important. Therefore each month we will gather over Zoom to have a fun B23 lesson filled with songs, Bible stories and activities. This Sign Up is a way for Laura to share the Zoom link while keeping it private so as not to allow for scammers to try to jump on to the call. But please share with any family who you think will benefit from the opportunity! Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!
Sunday School is offered to children 3 years old through 6th grade. We are using a curriculum written by our very own members who know the kids and the ways they learn best. The children learn about the Bible passage for the week in their classrooms through fun and interactive games, stories, crafts, science, and snacks. Children start Sunday School off with Faith Rocks Worship where they will sing fun Christ-centered songs and hear about the days’ lesson.
Faith Seeds – This is a time during the 10:10 a.m. services when children of all ages are invited to come forward for a lesson geared towards them. Parents are invited to come up with their children.
Sprouts – This is a time during the 10:10 a.m. service sermons (immediately following Faith Seeds) when children ages three-year-old through 1st grade, may join a leader for an age-appropriate lesson on the sermon text. Children will return to their parents shortly after the sermon ends. If you are interested in helping with Sprouts on occasion please fill out the following form: Sprouts Leader Form
Activity Bags and Children’s Bulletins – these are available for children to use during the services. They can be found at the front and back of the sanctuary and both the right and left entrances to the foundation.
Wednesday Morning Release Time (For youth in 2nd – 5th Grade)
Children have the opportunity to be released from their normal class schedule at school once a week (Wednesdays) for an hour to learn more about their faith and grow in fellowship with one another. This hour of time will include things such as crafts, games, Bible study, music and snacks.
56er’s is an after-school group for 5th and 6th graders on Wednesday. Children are invited to come to Faith once school is finished and enjoy games, fellowship, snacks, and lessons about God. A bus will drive the 6th graders over from the Middle School and the 5th graders can walk over from Park Elementary.
