K-5 Curriculum Overview
Sunday school at First Community Church is designed to help children develop a sense of a loving church family that will accompany them on their faith journey. Through experiential learning, children explored God’s love for all, the wonder of God and the universe and stories about Jesus. By providing consistent leaders in a child-centric space, children learn that the church can be relied upon to be a safe and loving place.
Sunday morning lessons generally follow the church-year calendar. The program year starts after Labor Day with stories from the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), moves through Advent and Christmas in December and January, concentrates on stories about Jesus and his teachings—including Lent and Easter—through the winter and spring, and concludes in late May or early June. During the summer, lessons concentrate on Bible stories explored in the context of LEGOs.
In kindergarten through third grade, children learn about the People of God and Jesus through the Godly Play program and curriculum.
In third and fourth grades, children participate in lessons and a curriculum written by the K-5 Ministry to meet their intellectual, emotional, developmental, social and spiritual needs.
Please take a moment to register your child for Sunday school. It is important that we be able to reach you in case of an emergency during your child’s time with us. Registering also provides us with crucial allergy or other health information and ensures that you receive up-to-date information about schedule changes and special events and opportunities. Thank you for helping us to provide the best possible care for your child.
Sunday school is taught by a trained and experienced leadership team. However, volunteers are crucial to supplement classroom supervision. Two people are needed in each classroom for safety. No experience or special skills are needed, just a smiling face and helping hands. Each new volunteer is placed with an experienced leader. Thank you!
