Workshop schedule for April/May 2011

On Sunday mornings, our Cool Disciples (our 1st – 6th graders) experience Rotation Model Sunday’s school, as they learn about Bible stories and concepts through kid-friendly multimedia workshops.

In April and the beginning of May, our story will be about the first Easter. In this Rotation, we will explore the sequence of events that took place during “Holy Week.” Holy Week covers the last days – the last week – of Jesus’ life on earth.

Our Bible stories come from the Gospels. We’ll start off in Matthew 21 and hop around, visiting a bit of John and Luke and ending at Matthew 28:1-10.
