A quizzical-looking boy holds what appears to be ten commandment tablets

In January we are studying the Ten Commandments.

I hate to admit this, but… this may be a Rotation that your kids have trouble grasping.

But there is a way to combat this problem!

+++++Continue the learning at home!

Here is a place to start.

For Saturdays at the Green Wood location, here is the schedule…

Date Workshop Activity
1/11 Drama Workshop Students will act out modern-day scenarios of the 10 commandments, challenging listeners to determine which commandment is involved.

And on Sundays, at the downtown location…

What’s happening in each workshop?

  • A keepsake copy of the Ten Commandment tablets

    In the Art Workshop students will create a keepsake copy of the Ten Commandment tablets. (Both Art 1 and Art 2 will do the same project.)

  • A golden calf

    In the Drama 1 Workshop students will enact the story as it is told by the leader; making use of props & music. Rumor says a golden calf will be there?

  • In the Drama 2 Workshop students will participate in acting out modern day scenarios of the Ten Commandments in action. Which commandment is represented in each scenario?
  • In the Music Workshop students visit the Bible mural timeline (and learn what the peachy-orange color signifies). Then they’ll watch a couple of music videos to learn about the Ten Commandments. (Dancing is optional.) Preview the videos here and here.


We do a different sort of Christian education for kids. We are a Workshop Rotation Model church. If you are in the area please join us for the fun learning at First United Methodist Church in Ann Arbor, MI
