Pre K (age 3 and 4)

Spirit of Hope offers FaithWalk Sunday School classes for children PreK (age 3 and 4).  Classes meet on Sunday mornings from Kick Off Rally Day in September through mid May.

Each week children gather in worship with their families for song and “Word with the children.”  Then children rare not dismissed, but “Missed” to Sunday School.  All kids meet teachers at the back of the Sanctuary where they will be escorted to their group gathering.  After Sunday School all children are picked up by parents in the Fellowship Hall, the large room on the lower level, where we will have a closing song and prayer together.

PreK 3 and 4 years – will go directly to the PreK classroom spaces behind the Nursery.  Preschoolers will gather for Faith Walk Large group closing.  Preschoolers are picked up downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.

FaithWalk Sunday School is for PreK-4th grade kids where they will learn core Bible stories using a rotation model.  Students are grouped by age/grade level and each rotation lasts three weeks.  During that period of time, classes will focus on a specific Bible Story and will experience that story by rotating through learning workshops: Storytelling, Art, Games, Science/Cooking, and Movie.  While the elementary-aged kids age rotating, the PreK kids will stay all together as a group and experience the bible story in a new way each week.  This is an exciting way for our kids to learn.  Each month we will have a surprise guest or activity in between rotation themes.

Here is how you can be part of this exciting faith formation with our kids:  This model of FaithWalk needs three types of leaders:

  1. Class leaders – stay with a group of children for the entire program year.  This could be 2-4 people sharing leadership on a rotating basis.
  2. Workshop leaders – sign up to teach a workshop for a week time period.  This allows for leaders of all ages and stages to connect with kids using their own special gifts and talents.
  3. Special guest – you are invited to be a special guest at Sunday school.  Come share a talent, activity and your faith story with the children.
