Bible Quest launches September 12th, 2021
Our young people, ages K-5th will start a new program in the traditional Sunday School hour. We (CE Board and Staff) have been working spring and summer to bring to fruition this version of Workshop Rotation Sunday School Model. Each month a new Bible Story will be the focus of our attention. We will read the story weekly, have an activity that enhances the key point of the story and spend our time together growing in our understanding of what the Bible has to say to us as people of faith. The hallmark of Bible Quest is the designation of specific workshops to accompany the story… to include Burning Bush Studios (Movie Workshop), Fancy Nancy’s Art Studio (Art), Garden of Eatin’ (Cooking), Wise Gals and Guys n Starry Skies (Science and Geography), Parable Players Theater (Drama), Absolutely Aaa-mazing Stories (Storytelling), and Ezekiel’s Wheel of Fortune (Games).
Not every workshop is used in each rotation. A game rotation may be a nice way to close out the Fall learning period with fun and prizes as we see who learned the Bible stories well during the four-month semester. Likewise, we might encounter a story where an art or cooking project is not fitting or appropriate. Hence the variety of offerings.
This Fall, we will be looking at The Creation Story, Joseph, Moses and the Birth of Jesus. Mark August 29th for a walk through of workshop rooms and spaces. [Walk through is for everyone immediately following the 9:30am service. Grab coffee and come on over to CE Building]
