“Kick-off” for Sunday School will happen on September 20th ONLINE, on Zoom, likely at 1:30pm (as we were doing from March through June). I will be sending out a letter to families. Anyone interested in joining (who is not on our “regular” email list can send an email to me karen_forgrave@hotmail,.com and I will get them the information. Rev. Maya will join us at the beginning of the first Sunday School time to introduce herself to the students.
We will meet ONLINE for Sunday School on September 20th and September 27th.
We will be transitioning into the church when it opens to the congregation on October 4th, but how that will look has yet to be determined (it depends how things go with the opening of school).
Awesome Sunday School begins Sundays, at 10:30 a.m. Children JK to Grade 12 all are welcome!
(Professional Nursery care is available for infants and toddlers age 3 and under).
St. James uses the Rotational Model for its Sunday School Program. Every four weeks, students learn a new Bible Story. Each Sunday, we meet together as a large group for stories and songs, and then the children break into smaller age-groups and rotate through various workshops, all based on the current Bible story or theme. This means that over the course of a four-week rotation, children will experience four different interactive and exciting approaches to learning (e.g. drama, cooking, computers, games, art).
St. James’ four rotation areas are:
Creation Station. Through art, cooking, and crafts students spend time thinking about the story as they create different projects 'hands on'.
Computer Lab. We have a variety of different interactive programs to help children remember the stories they are learning.
Drama. Students will participate in skits, mini-dramas, tableaus, or they may watch a movie (with popcorn, of course) and see the story in a new way.
Games. Through interactive games, students work with the various elements of the stories and get to know each other a little better.
