When I’m not busy being mom and teacher to my girls, I am also the Sunday School Director for the church we started two years ago.
When we moved into building we use for our church it was an empty shell. The lower level was just dirt and the upper level used to be a roof that another layer was added onto. We needed a sanctuary first, so that was priority 1.
A year and a half later, we were finally able to add an actual floor to the lower level and put some drywall up on the previously plain concrete walls. Yea for a Sunday school room!!
We’ve been having lots of fun in Sunday school and I wanted to share some of it with you.
Yesterday, our brand new team of Sunday school teachers got together to create some fun decorations for the room. The kids will be coloring the “kids” throughout the quarter as we have extra time in class.
For the spring quarter we are learning about the resurrection story and the experience of the day of Pentecost.
We used some of the Scrappy Kids from Graphics from the Pond, enlarged them with a projector and then cut them out. Then we made some little flames of fire to represent the original outpouring of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost. Lovely little worshippers!
Add in a big rock and a fun tree for a little background scenery and we have a great start to our Sunday school room decorations.
Our focus Scripture verse for the month is Acts 1:8, so I made up some fun printable activities and handwriting worksheets for the kids to take home and work on throughout the month.
Download the Free Scripture printables and handwriting worksheets.
I’ve also included a template to make this fun Jesus’ Ascension craft.
For the craft, print the cloud and Jesus. Use a hole punch to make holes in the head of Jesus and the top of the cloud. Thread some yarn through both and tie to Jesus. Pull the string on the cloud up to make Jesus disappear into the cloud.
I hope you enjoy these activities as you do your Scripture studies with your little ones! What are you studying with your kids? I’d love to hear! Please leave a comment and let me know!
