Summer 2020 Social Distancing Zoom (online) Sunday School classes —Normally, Sunday School is on hold for the summer, however because of social distancing, we want to still meet once a week to talk, hang out, and go over some key lessons learned from the bible. Sunday School for the youth classes will meet once a week in the month of June and July (except for the 2nd and 3rd week of June). Both of the classes (Pre-Teen and Teen) will be focusing on lessons from the book and life of Ruth. Want to join or have a youth-aged kid? Email Jackie at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make it happen!
- Pre-Teens: Our weekly Zoom meetings will include: age-appropriate discussion about the topic, games, and group prayer & praises.
- Teens: Our weekly Zoom meetings will include: age-appropriate discussion about the topic with application to real-life scenarios in their lives, discussion about video games, summer plans, and more, as well as group prayer & praises.
SUNDAY SCHOOL (Spiritual Education) During Sunday School, all ages look forward to time with a trained, background-screened teacher who prays for and cares for his or her students, and activities that address multiple learning styles and personal interests. Lessons prominently feature scripture, small group discussion, and perspectives on the Christian faith through Reformed teaching and interpretation of scripture.
PRE-TEEN (5th grade – 7th grade) Each Sunday during the school year, Pre-Teen class meets from 10:45 to 11:30 am in a classroom. They are currently working through the LIVE 5th & 6th grade curriculum. This is a three-year curriculum to provide foundational teaching and insight into both the Old and New testaments. This class is staffed by two adults, and average between 3-5 students in the class, which provides an opportunity for personalized content and connections.
TEEN LOFT (8th grade – 12th grade) Each Sunday during the school year, Teen Loft meets from 10:45 to 11:30 am in the loft above the sanctuary. They are currently working through Who, Me? – a scripture and devotional study, focusing on life lessons from characters of the bible. They are encouraged to participate joint youth activities and camps with local Boulder Churches and Young Life.
1st SUNDAY CHAT (5th grade – 12th grade) On the first Sunday of the month, Pre-Teen and Teen Loft come together as one group for a special class. While enjoying breakfast pastries, a member of the church joins the group to share their faith journey, how spirituality plays a role in their life, and insight on their hobbies. This creates a special connection between our youth and members of the church and allows for students to learn the diverse paths people take in their faith formation.
Mark 12:30-31: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself.
