The Workshop Rotation at Greenfield Presbyterian Church in a Nutshell:
All children and youth stay in worship for the first part of the liturgy. They are invited to go to Sunday School together after the “Children’s Time,” a conversation with the youngest of our disciples. In our Workshop Rotation Sunday School for children ages 3 years through 5th grade, we teach the same Bible story for one month to all our elementary students. Each week classes rotate into a new and unique workshop: art, games, drama, science, video and cooking.
· By slowing down the rate of story change, the Workshop Rotation Model deepens the student’s experience and memory.
· Bible literacy improves when the same story is taught through different workshops over 4 to 5 weeks.
· Each workshop focuses on a different creative learning style or “intelligence,” which broadens memory.
· Volunteers can sign up to help for one month of their choosing, and not need to make a weekly commitment for an entire school year.
· Traditional boring classrooms become transformed into fun, inventive workshops. Students anticipate something new each week.
· Creative workshop environments signal quality to parents, and are attractive to visitors and our kids!
· Flexible scheduling adapts to the on the size and ages of our children, chosen story, creative inspiration, or calendar need.
· Fewer stories means less curriculum costs and we are able to borrow ideas from other churches and creative websites like Pinterest. Funds previously spent on curriculum can be re-directed toward teaching resources.
Our Confirmation Class is open to 8th graders. This will meet once a week for 12 weeks. It’s a time to understand more about church and Greenfield.
Middle school youth and friends are invited to our Sunday evening STAGE 1 youth group activities. High school youth and friends participate in STAGE 2 activities.
