Trapped by the Table

My Sunday school class takes place in a small square room with two rectangle tables pushed together in the center. Add 8 chairs filled with fifth graders and you’ve used up all the floor space.

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?

Sunday School

Hi I am trying to see what other churches are doing during “Sunday School” time for 6th thru 12th graders. We are trying to change it up at our church. If you would be willing to email me what you call it, curriculum, if it is working and any other details that would be helpful. Thanks soo much!! Sherri Kragt East Saugatuck CRC [email protected]

How Many Teachers Do You Have per Age-Group?

I try to recruit two teachers per level with one alternate so that the teachers can decide if they'll teach together each week, take turns, or have every third week off when the alternate teacher comes in. I think flexibility is important for leaders, but consistency is also important for the kids. What has worked for your team?

Can you recommend any good resources for an Easter program for kids primarily in grades 3-6?

I'm looking into having a Sunday School Easter program instead of a Christmas program this year. (There are so many other special activities that occur during the Advent and Christmas season for kids to participate in.) Has anyone else done an Easter program? Can you recommend any good resources for a play for kids primarily in grades 3-6, but possibly including younger and older kids as well?

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?

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.

Have you used No Easy Answers from Faith Alive?

I just got a phone call from a man named Peter in Florida who is hoping to teach No Easy Answers with 9-12 graders. He wants to speak with someone who has taught it and can give him some advice on teaching it. It's one that I haven't taught. Please let me know if you'd like to help Peter out. Thanks!
