SUNDAY MORNINGS

Room 1-109: Toddlers born between 9/1/16 and 3/1/18

9:30 Sunday School

Upstairs Fellowship Hall (Building 3): 3 years old before 9/1/19 – 5th grade

Children will develop a relationship with the Lord through intentional stories, wondering, and work. Our Godly Play approach to Sunday School believes that children have an innate sense of the presence of God. Our teachers are here to help them explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Come join us!

Worship Dance: Room 1-111 The Music Room:3 years old before 9/1/19-5th grade

Children who participate in worship dance use music and movement as a form of worship rather than as an expression of art or as entertainment. Praise dancers use their bodies to express the word and spirit of God. This is for boys and girls. The teacher is Mary Miklos.

Children’s Music: Room 3-209 The Children’s Music Room: PreK-5th grade

Children in our Music class learn to play Orff instruments and bells. They learn and perform vocal and instrumental arrangements in worship services at various services. Children of all ages will learn more about God and music alongside our awesome music teacher, Hollie Binette. We ask that parents register the child(ren) and make a reasonable commitment to attend rehearsals. You can register here: https://firstchurchoviedokids.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/352581
