WESLEY SUNDAY SCHOOL
WE ARE ORANGE
In Wesley’s elementary Sunday school programming an orange philosophy and strategy is central. We Believe That Two Combined Influences Make A Greater Impact Than Just Two Individual Influences. Here is just a bit about that strategy: We concentrate on three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.
Little Wonders Sunday School
Sunday School Programming in Wesley UMC’s Nursery and Preschool Ministry (ages 0-5) is planned with an orange philosophy/strategy at its core. This means: WE ARE ORANGE. We believe that TWO combined influences make a greater impact than just two individual influences.
Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths:
God made me
God loves me
Jesus wants to be my friend forever
The entire curriculum is constructed to incite wonder in a preschooler and meet them where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age-appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know the three basic truths.
COVID- Currently in COVID our PHILOPSOPHY has been more important than ever. We are sending out weekly- all materials that kids would have used in the building and this strange time has allowed families to really focus on the red part of our strategy. Orange curriculum has allowed us to send everything home electronically!
MOVING FORWARD- In April, as we move forward and worship outside, preschool families are encouraged to come as they are able and comfortable. Ms. Liz is looking forward to chalk drawings in the parking lot and crayons and coloring books will also be available. In May as we move into the building, we will be working with staff and SPRC and the re-entry task force to bring back more of our yellow elements to our orange strategy like our Sunday Morning Nursery, Preschool Sunday School and Wednesday Night
Programming which includes kids' choirs, kids' activities and mission projects. Contact Liz Tomera for more information.
Childrens Sunday School
COVID- Currently in the COVID environment our ORANGE PHILOPSOPHY has been more important than ever. We are sending out weekly- all materials that kids would have used in the building and this strange time has allowed families to really focus on the red part of our strategy. Orange curriculum has allowed our Sunday School to send everything home electronically and we have even delivered take home papers monthly in work from home materials.
KIDS ZOOM- Kids also have had the opportunity to talk directly with Miss Kathi at 11 am on Sunday morning for a zoom session on whatever Bible story is being taught. It is quick and fun!!! MOVING FORWARD- In April as we move forward and worship outside we might have to move the kids Zooms to 3:30 in the afternoons on Sunday to allow Miss Kathi and families who choose to, to be at both the service and the kids zoom. In May as we move into the building we will be working with staff and SPRC and the re-entry task force to bring back more of our yellow elements to our orange strategy like our Wednesday night programming which includes kids choirs, kids activities and mission projects, VBS- we will Mission to Mars this summer in July and August, WISE (Wesley Intergenerational Sunday Experience) a k-5 th grade program for kids and parents and children’s church which are opposite both services. Contact Kathi Pritts for more information.
