…He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:14b-16
Join the Party! The Last Day of Sunday School for the year is on May 21st and we’re having a party! Meet in classes and then we will be dismissed for games and refreshments. We hope that your family can join us for this fun event!!!
Shepherd of the Hills Sunday School is held on Sunday mornings from 9:30 – 10:20 am with classes from Preschool through 5th Grade September – May
We ask that parents or other designated adults personally walk their child(ren) to their Sunday school classroom and sign the check-in sheet. We also ask that parents or other designated adults personally pick up your child(ren) at their classroom at 10:20 am and initial the check-in sheet as you leave. We want to ensure the safety of each child.
2017 Sunday School Memory Work Goals
Each of our Sunday school classrooms will have a memory work goal that will be accomplished by the end of the school year. Classes will spend three lessons learning the meaning behind the words they are memorizing. Teachers in each of our classrooms will be working with the children to learn the following:
- Preschool – The Lord’s Prayer
- K/1st Grade – The Ten Commandments
- 2nd and 3rd Grade – The Apostles’ Creed
- 4th and 5th Grade – Psalm 23
This memory work strategy will allow us to better prepare children for 6th grade confirmation class and teach children key parts of our Sunday worship service that will allow them to participate in worship. We ask that parents work with their child at home to reinforce and practice what their child is learning in their Sunday school class.
Our four classrooms are organized as follows.
JAM: (Jesus and Me)
- Preschool (ages 3-5) in the Cana room
- K & 1st grade in the Capernum room
- 2nd and 3rd grade in the Jerusalem room
BE: (Bible Explorers)
- 4th and 5th grade in the Nazareth room
Throughout the School year we will focus on these four key areas
- Creating a Small Group Feel
- Building Relationships
- Emphasis on Community
- Growing in Our Faith and Serving Others
