Sharing Faith Stories With Kids

Two thumbs to Holly Gort, director of education at South Grandville CRC, for sharing this excellent idea! Holly’s plan is to offer a two-part workshop that will help adults and teens share their faith stories with younger members of the congregation.

The Sounds of Easter

Holy week was a whirlwind of noise, energy, and emotion! Help your kids wonder at the sound of tables crashing in the temple, the thump, thump of approaching soldiers, the crow of a rooster.

What's the best way to plan for low and irregular Sunday School attendance?

Our Sunday school has low and irregular attendance (from about one child to eight or more). The leaders are currently using the Kid Connection curriculum, which seems to be a good fit for a small Sunday school. However, not knowing whether two or ten students are going to be there makes planning, even with this curriculum, a challenge and it is disheartening. The leaders asked that I solicit any suggestions or advice. Any thoughts?

Faith Stories Workshop

I am looking to put a faith stories workshop together to help people of our congregation write out their faith stories and share them with the children of our Sunday School. Does anyone out there have ideas on how to do this?

Calendar Check

It's February and between snow days and special events your Sunday school might be lagging a behind schedule. Take a minute to look over the scope and sequence of the material you're using to determine where you are and where you’d like to be.

Where do you donate your extra Sunday School Curriculum?

I would love to know about organizations or suggestions about where to donate extra incomplete Sunday school curriculum. Often we have extra units that are missing some sessions, or the stickers or story cards are partially used. So, they aren’t complete therefore we won’t use them again next year. But I know there are many churches and countries that CAN use them.

Key Connections

It’s easy to feel isolated when you’re leading a ministry. If the attendance drops, a volunteer steps down, or parents are unhappy, everyone looks to you for solutions and direction. But who do you look to for support, encouragement, and advice?

Collecting for a Cause

Did you know that nearly half of all the gifts given from the CRWRC gift catalog are from Sunday school classes? Kids love to know that their offerings will provide a goat, a well, or a pig for someone else!
