Cool Disciples Schedule: August 2011

During the summer our Cool Disciples explore Bible stories on Sunday mornings using the fun, transformational teaching tool, The Workshop Rotation Model. Summer is a bit different in that we combine grade groups. This summer we’ve also got more changes – a different choice for older students. Read more about that choice here.

Right now we are learning about Psalm 100. Did you know that the fast way to find a psalm is to open up a Bible in the middle? Try it and see! (Or read Psalm 100 on-line here.)

Here is the way we are exploring this story… (Because July had an extra week, we’ve already started learning about Psalm 100.)

Date Workshop Activity
7/31 Missions Workshop The kids had a chance to learn about mission work and to participate in a mission project: to pick up trash around the church grounds. I wonder what mission work has to do with Psalm 100? (Sounds like a good topic for a blog post! Updated: Read it here.)
8/7 Communion Sunday No workshops – attend worship with your family.
8/14 Science Workshop Participate in science experiments about sound and make musical instruments to make a “Joyful Noise.”
8/21 A special showing of a video Video to be announced!
8/28 Video/Music Workshop Watch portions of the video Sister Act and discuss the importance of praising God through music.

If you are in the area please join us for the fun learning at First United Methodist Church in Ann Arbor, MI
