This breakout comes from Christie Walker and Kemp Hill, who have been involved in ministry for small children for over twenty years, have learned some insightful paths into the heart of the Gospel in a place where it so often seems dried up, what with the felt boards and church ladies. They have since created curricula that seek to bring the Gospel back into Sunday School. In their breakout session, they look into these questions:
How can we share the Gospel with children at church in a fun and meaningful way? How can we meet the needs of families with children who come to church? Has anybody ever tried to find a Sunday School curriculum that isn’t just moralism?
We are not “The Church Ladies.” In twenty years of children’s ministry, these are questions we’ve been probing at Christ Episcopal Church. In our Breakout session, our hope is to explore these questions together and share some things that have worked well for us.
