Middle School (6th - 8th Grade)
Our Middle School students will begin the year with weekly Zoom lessons and check-in time; the lessons are based off of Nadia Bolz-Webers “Have A Little Faith” video series. If your teen is looking for some more hands-on activities, many of the home activities in the Elementary curriculum can be ‘aged up’ for teen participation and enjoyment. We also know that the teenage circadian rhythm can be WILDLY different from that of younger children and adults. Therefore, please know that the meeting times listed on the calendar are arbitrary and just to get us started. If, after a few weeks, the teachers and students decide it would be best to meet at a different time on Sunday, you have our full blessing to do so!

As we move deeper into the fall, I encourage everyone in the congregation to take a peek at what our children and youth are learning this month.
This month, the Elementary students are learning the story of Esther, a courageous queen from the Hebrew Bible, who saved the Jewish people with her bravery and willingness to stand up for what’s right! They are learning about how God helps us help others, and the simple and powerful message of Hebrews 13:6: “God is my helper; I will not be afraid!” There are some pretty cool activities that children are invited to do at home with their families, check them out if you like challah, noise-making, and (washable, safe) body art!
Our Middle and High School students are continuing Nadia Bolz Weber’s Have a Little Faith series (link). You can follow along with the Big Questions they’re pondering by clicking on the links below!
As Church School gets into full swing, we encourage everyone in the congregation to eavesdrop on what our children and youth are learning this month!
For the month of October, the Elementary students are learning about prayer! They are learning that prayer is how we talk to God, that it’s one of the ways God can talk to us, and that there are many different ways of praying, including the special prayer that Jesus taught us called The Lord’s Prayer.
There are some pretty cool activities that children are invited to do at home with their families (activity kits are ready for pickup!), you can check them out too if you are looking for more pizza, sacred doodling, or science-experimenting in your life.
