Four Sundays a year, our Sunday School children gather together to participate in a group lesson. This lesson is not only a chance to deviate from the standard curriculum and venture outside their classrooms into the parish hall, but most importantly a chance to connect with each other without the ‘grade level boundaries’. The youngest children love having a chance to partner with their older peers. The older children are excited to help the younger ones with a project or activity. It truly is an opportunity for the next generation of Good Shepherd to build a sense of community.
This week, February 12, will be our third Youth Fellowship Sunday of the school year. Lori Bathurst will lead the children in a lesson about Miracles. Traditionally, our Youth Fellowship lesson features group discussion and typically a game or craft. Teachers from each grade level assist the Youth Fellowship leaders; working with each child individually and in smaller groups. When the bell rings, the children are usually busy putting the finishing touches on their project or wrapping up an activity with a group of their peers.
Youth Fellowship lessons are just one of the ways we try to enhance our standard Sunday School curriculum. These sessions support one of our goals which is ensuring our kids have a sense of fellowship and belonging.
We hope your children join us this Sunday, February 12, 2017, to participate in Youth Fellowship and a chance to engage in a lesson about Miracles!
