A month about love: February 2014 Schedule

Jesus was often peppered with questions. The toughest, trickiest one was probably:

Teacher, what is the most important commandment in the Law?
Matthew 22:36

In February, we’ll be studying the answer Jesus gave. His response is so important it’s even named! Appropriately enough it’s called: The Greatest Commandment.

Jesus’ positive prescription?

It’s about love.

Read our story of Jesus’ Greatest Commandment in Matthew 22:34-40. Check out our schedule of Rotation workshops below!

To see a growing list of opportunities to foster faith learning at home for our stories on the Ten Commandments and the Greatest Commandment (because they are interrelated) click here.

Note: In February we are doubling up the classes due to winter vacations and a predicted (unfortunate) increase in illness which can keep kids, and workshop leaders, at home!

What’s happening in each workshop?

  • In the Art Workshop students will create a decorative hanging container out of clay, to store a copy of the Greatest Commandment. This case will be modeled after a Jewish mezuzah. This one will be a keeper!
  • In the Cooking Workshop students will mix up and bag snack mix, to share with the L.O.V.E. Thy Neighbor program. What other ways will your kids help their neighbors?
  • In the Games Workshop students will participate in a game requiring cooperation (and treating your neighbor nicely!). Come join in a fun game of “Titanic Challenge.”

What is this all about? On Saturday nights and on Sunday mornings at FUMC our Cool Disciples experience Rotation Model Christian education, as they learn about Bible stories and concepts through kid-friendly multimedia workshops. If you are in the area please join us for the fun learning at First United Methodist Church in Ann Arbor, MI.
