Discover Day moved us outside the Sunday School box, allowing adults in our community to share their gifts and children to explore spiritual practices from yoga to scripture based art.
Using a modified Anglican rosary, the wardens gather before church and pray for the congregation gathered, dispersed, and for the world. The Invitatory prayer at the beginning and end was created from our mission statement. The time of prayer is concluded with the Lord’s Prayer.
5th grade Sunday school becomes fertile ground for practicing prayer and building intergenerational relationships. Prayer bead making, prayer writing, and intentionally inviting adults into community with children are key pieces to this year-long lesson.
