Summer is almost here, which means we will be taking a little hiatus from our curriculum Adventures with God. These last nine months, our amazing Sunday School teachers have been diving into this curriculum that “focuses on our relationship with God through the Word of God and explores the entire scope of God’s Story.” We are so grateful for their dedication and support of all of the Communitas kiddos.
Since taking this position as Children’s Ministry Director, I’ve been able to observe the classes as well as teach. The dialogue the teachers and students have about our Savior is pretty uplifting. I was giving a lesson about Naaman and while reading his story to the children, the children had so many questions about why Naaman was so bad? Why did Naaman have “yucky spots" all over him? Why did the little girl who was his slave help him? Why did God heal him? Through the lesson they came to understand that forgiveness is healing to our souls and God is the one that provides that healing.
We also have started a Sunday School class for 5th grade and up. They meet two Sundays per month and the other Sundays, they’re either in service or helping in the other kids classes. We're so excited to see how God has continued to shape both the children, older kids and the teachers through these classes and we look forward to a great summer together.
