Fall Sunday School for Children and Youth

Fall Sunday School for Children and Youth

Older twos – 2nd grade will follow the PC(USA) Growing in Grace and Gratitude curriculum.

Third, fourth, fifth and sixth graders are using a Rotation Model of study this year, which will let the children experience one Bible story a month in a variety of ways.  Using the Godly Play curriculum for the foundational stories of the Old Testament, children will express and experience these stories through maps, LEGO models, drama, music, games, gardening, feasting, and prayer. They will be getting their hands dirty and using all of their senses to understand the stories so basic to our Judeo/ Christian tradition.  Guests and friends are always welcome.

Confirmation (grades 7 – 9, and up)  It’s a confirmation year for our 7th – 9th graders.  Together with their adult mentors, our confirmands will spend the first semester of this year visiting and observing other faith communities in Durham to notice what we have in common, and how we differ.  We will be learning to be good guests in our pluralistic neighborhood.  Then after Christmas, we will spend some classroom time together exploring what it means to be a Christian in the Reformed Tradition.  Most classes will take place during the Sunday School hour.

High School (grades 10-12)  High Schoolers will start by discussing The Apocrypha.  Visitors are always welcome.
