Cross Training Rotation Sunday School
is buzzing with energy
Sunday mornings from 9:20 to 10:20!
In a Nutshell:
Major Bible stories and concepts are taught through kid-friendly multimedia workshops: An Art workshop, Drama, Music, Games, Science, Puppets, Storytelling, Theatre, and any other educational media.
The same Bible Story is taught in all of the workshops for (5) weeks, rotating the kids to a different workshop each week. And here comes the extremely teacher-friendly part: Keep the same teacher in each workshop for all (5) weeks — teaching the same lesson week after week (with some age appropriate adjustments) to each new class coming in.
Here’s Why It Works:
The Workshop Rotation Model concentrates on the Major Bible stories over and over again. It abandons the popular but educationally unsound lectionary idea of changing the story each week. The model’s philosophy recognizes that kids not only love repetition, but they need it to develop a lasting memory and understanding of content. The multi-intelligences (creative methods) approach in the model isn’t a fad or merely kid-friendly, it is calculated to take advantage of our student’s God-given thirst for multi-modal learning.
In kids’ terms our children's ministry, "Cross Training," mirrors the mission of Mt Zion: We want to help kids, 3K through 5th grade to discover the unshakable foundation of the love of Jesus — and to grow in their understanding of how important they are to Jesus — who gives them His all!
Let the little children come to me… for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. ~Jesus Christ
