K-7th grade One Room Schoolhouse

Coming from a place of wanting to meet the needs of all our young people and the desire to create connections across age groups this year we are trying out a new model of religious education. Rather than splitting our elementary age children into classes by age, we are doing all our programming as one multi-age group. There are many benefits to learning in a multi-age community including opportunities for children to teach and learn from each other.

We will be using theme based ministry as the basis for our time together. Each month we will focus on a church wide theme with the adults upstairs listening to sermons and readings on the themes and the children downstairs exploring those same themes through art, story, movement, discussion and more.

Lessons are pulled from a variety of sources and we do our best to adapt our curriculum to the needs of the children attending class.
