Children's Resources

Welcome to our page for children's ministries during COVID-19. Below you'll find many resources to engage your child in Christ centered activities any day of the week. The first section is geared toward learning on Sabbath (Saturday) during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place. The second section includes additional links and a link to complete a survey regarding your needs for any resources: e.g. age-specific projects, crafting material, recommended activities, virtual meet-ups with other parents...etc.

With the COVID-19 shelter-in-place restrictions, we've come up with pre-recorded Sabbath-school content that you can use as if you're in Sabbath school with us. We understand that it's hard to keep kids engaged and look forward to meeting at church in the near future. In the mean time the pre-recorded video covers a nature story with spiritual connection to the weekly topic, followed by the main Sabbath-school story. The main story is told by our teachers and should be used in connection with your own daily study of the My Bible First handouts sent home. If you need these, please email us so we can mail them out to you.

 

 

 

 

 

Because we know that most kids are getting more screen-time with this shelter-in-place situation, we're limiting each lesson story video to about 10-15 minutes. We expect that you watch with your children and then discuss it while building the craft together. We all are strapped for more resources so the crafts should help you find easy to do activities- but they aren't meant to be done by the kids alone. The Craft Summary Video is meant to provide a 5-10 minute set of tips about how to build the craft for parents to get prepared ahead of time. We expect that this craft time is a meaningful team effort to create something together while discussing the story that was watched just before. Be careful, your children will surprise you with some spiritual applications that amaze you and may ask really deep existential questions!

Warm Regards from our Church Teachers!

We miss you all and pray for your health and peace of mind.
