Spark

Kindergarten & 1st Graders

Spark meets in Room 105

Sunday School (1st Service) – 9:00 am

KidsClub – Sunday Evenings

 

What to Expect

Sunday School (1st Service)

Here is an example of what your child will experience during Sunday School:

  • Opener/Icebreaker

This is a quick and fun activity as the children are arriving.

  • Worship Songs

We will sing two worship songs together as a group. Some will be “kid” songs, others will be contemporary worship songs they might hear upstairs in service.

Lesson

I will teach the main Bible lesson of the morning. Spark and IGNITE will use the same curriculum, theme, and memory verse. I will just teach at an age-appropriate level.

Bible Game/Activity

These activities will reinforce the lesson. The children might put a puzzle together with the memory verse, play a trivia game about the story, or practice finding books in the Bible.

Small Group Discussion

Shepherds will meet with groups of 8-10 students in the classroom. Each week they will apply the lesson to three discussion questions and pray together. The weekly discussion questions are:

  1. What did I learn about today?

  2. How can this story be part of my life?

  3. Who can I show Jesus’ love to this week? How?

  • Free Time (coloring, games, etc.)

Students will have time at the end to play games with the other children and shepherds to make connections and friendships.
