On Saturday nights and on Sunday mornings at FUMC our “Cool Disciples” experience Bible stories through kid-friendly multimedia workshops via Workshop Rotation Model™ Christian education. It’s hard to believe we are almost at the end of another school year! As we’ve done in the past, we will be mixing it up in May.

Sometimes there will be a workshop to attend…such as Puppets on a Saturday night.

Puppets are used to tell the story

And other times, instead of the usual focus on a Bible story, we’ll be participating in a variety of activities such as playing a great big review game or going to Youth-led Worship.
