Crosswalk kids will learn about listening and responding to God.
CrossWalk, St. Andrew’s Sunday morning program for four year olds through fifth graders, is a series of workshop-based classes, which focus on one Bible story each month. The children get to explore the story in a different workshop each week. Workshops can include art, drama, science, storytelling, cooking, games, and video. God has created us as unique individuals, and we all learn differently. CrossWalk embraces our children’s different learning styles and helps them internalize these basic stories of the faith.
CrossWalk begins each Sunday at 9:45 with Gathering Time in Room 104 in the Education Building behind the main church building. Children then leave with teenage or adult shepherds and go to their workshops for the week. Parents must pick up their children from the classrooms.
Students will learn about what it means to respond to God's direction as they explore the lives of biblical figures in CrossWalk's 2018-2019 theme, "Listening to God's Word."
Crosswalk classes will resume September 9th.
September: Noah. Noah loved and obeyed God, even when the request was flabbergasting! We'll measure out cubits, bake rainbow cookies, and review the story of the great flood in a video during our study of this faithful man of God.
October: Joshua. The Israelites have wandered for 40 years in the wilderness with Moses, and now it is time to enter into the Promised Land with Joshua, their new leader. We'll act out the major scenes of the Joshua story, construct the Jericho walls with Legos (and watch them fall in a cooking workshop!), and remember the story of God's faithfulness with painted stones.
November: The Anointing of David. Often God's instructions do not match our expectations. We'll watch a video and retell the story of Jesse's youngest, smallest son, chosen to lead God's people, talk about optical illusions in a games workshop, and explore how invisible ingredients can make ALL the difference, both in cooking, and in life.
December: Angels as Messengers. God speaks through angels in several of the Christmas stories. We'll explore three: Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds, as we work our way through cooking, art, and games workshops.
