The Connection (K-4)


The Connection meets on Sundays from 9:45 - 10:45 am ushering children into an adventure in learning that brings the Bible to life! Children participate each week in one of eighteen different interactive workshops (see below!). They learn traditional Bible stories and rock solid biblical truths through activities that are engaging and unforgettable.

The Connection is a place for children to connect:

  • with their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
  • with teachings of Scripture
  • with their church as a family of believers
  • with each other as friends sharing a common faith

All children must register for the 2016-2017 Connection Sunday School.  Click here to register.

What are the workshop rotations?
We focus on one Bible passage and its related themes each month. Then each weekly rotation uses the workshop topic to focus and serve as the main learning tool for the week. Here's a brief synopsis of each workshop.

  • Art--learning is reinforced through art including painting, drawing, modelling, and arts and crafts
  • Bible Skills and Games--fun, interactive learning happens as kids play in our Game show room, or in our gym
  • Computer Lab--in our computer lab, children use computers to create and learn.
  • Cooking--our 3rd floor diner brings cooking and culture together to expand the Bible story
  • Creative Drama--children put on their own drama production based upon the month's Bible passage
  • Music--using music, song and instruments, the Bible passage is reinforced
  • People Quest(Missions Room)--connects children to God's mission around the world and how they can love the people around them!
  • Science--in the science lab, children use experiments to discover how facts and physical laws support and connect to their faith walk
  • Video--using videos and movies to enhance the story--complete with popcorn

We always need teachers who can relate to our children through any of the above workshops. Teaching in teams reduces the time commitment to only one month or 4 consecutive Sundays per quarter.
