Children visit a different workshop every Sunday. Over the course of four to five weeks, they will be immersed in a single biblical story as they move through the various workshops. Each fifth Sunday will be an “All Lighthouse” event for the whole group. They will come to know Christ in a whole new way so that they can share his light with others. Please register here

Rotation 5 - February 11 to March 4: "John the Baptist"

ART: The children will create a fruit/vegetable print that shows the wilderness of the desert where John the Baptist lived.

DRAMA: The children will dress up in costume and act out a press conference where John the Baptist is being interviewed by a reporter. A crowd and priests are present at the press conference.

GAMES: All classes will play a “Tag” game to reinforce that John the Baptist was sent to prepare the way for Jesus. Kindergarten through 2nd grade will also play a John the Baptist-themed Matching Game while 3rd/4th will play a game called “Throw Your Sins Away” and decide among three stories who repented and who did not.

SCIENCE: Classes will make “honey & locust” ice cream by mixing raw ingredients in a Ziploc bag. They will learn about the science behind how the raw ingredients are transformed into ice cream. They will experience eating some of the unusual foods that John the Baptist ate.

 

Connect Logo

 Grade 5 & 6

Every Connect lesson follows a three-part sequence: See, Explore, and Make. Each week, tweens focus on and reinforce a theme by watching a video that combines witty slap-stick humor with solid theology, exploring biblical text, and creating projects that range from games to art and more. We explore themes found throughout the Bible’s greatest stories and encourage preteens to see the narrative arc of the Bible—from Creation to New Creation, and encourage them to ask questions, make connections, and reflect.

This year we focus on the Old Testament with Units such as Beginnings, which is a journey through Genesis from Creation to the Tower of Babel, The Promise, which continues in Genesis and focuses on stories such as the Covenant and Joseph. Freedom takes us to Exodus with stories including Moses, Commandments and Promised Land. Kings and Prophets will take us into spring where we will study stories such as David and Solomon's Temple.
