Angels in Advent: a peek into Sunday School

Angels have been hovering all around us this Advent season, and we continued this theme last Sunday in our multiage Sunday school class.  After lighting our third candle in our Advent wreath and a candlelit opening combining all three classes, the multiage children enjoyed finding angels illustrated in the book The Nativity by Julie Vivas and then watched a fantastic short video called An Unexpected Christmas, featuring God’s host of angels very surprised by God’s plan for Jesus’ birth.  Check out the video here.  We then explored three different activity stations: decorating angel coloring pages, creating sparkly angel messages, and reading Christmas books in an ever-expanding twinkling fort.  The reading fort started under one table with three children, then grew (with the help of some very motivated kid engineers) to encompass the entire stage to fit everyone.  Always room for one more!

Preparing for Holy Week, with Legos

This past Sunday, Marjorie led our multiage class in a first try of “Bible Legos.”  With the help of Melissa T., Dennis, and 4 tubs of Legos, the class created three scenes from Holy Week: Palm Sunday, Cleansing the Temple, and the Last Supper.  Each group then shared their story with the whole group.  The event was fun and engaging, and the design teams were making real inquiries into the scripture lessons while building their scenes.  Take a look!Lego overturning tables 2014lego last supper 2014
