    Good Reasons to Roll Out of Bed on Sunday Morning

    See if this applies to you in any way. You've stayed up late Saturday night to do some last minute preparation for tomorrow's Sunday School class. You have the story down pat, but you're short popsicle sticks and glue for the craft and forget about the music, thats not your forte and the kids will just have to do without the songs. When Sunday rolls around, you along with all your children would much rather stay in bed but you get up and either drag or bully everyone in the family along to class. Now contrast it with this. One child tells you Saturday night during their bath that tomorrow is their scheduled time in the art room and they are very excited about making some small clay jars on the potter's wheel. Your oldest child asks to borrow your eyeliner because he needs to draw a beard on for his part as wedding host for tomorrow's play. You are relaxed and confident because you went through the lesson last week and only need to tweak some details for the same lesson this week to an older age group. I've been involved in Sunday School in one way or another for more than twenty years. The last ten of those has been as a coordinator for Christian Education at my church. This is the most excited I've been about a program and curriculum format in all that time. Imagine a Sunday School that gets talked about during the week, that kids actually look forward to. Imagine a format that helps identify the talents of individual teachers and then allows them to utilize those skills to their best advanatage. Imagine curriculum organization that has volunteers lining up to participate and thats what you have with this new rotation concept. Take a standard Bible story and divide it into five workshops. Teach that same story for five weeks in a row using a different medium each week. Rotate the children through each of the workshops allowing them to deepen their understanding with each weeks immersement in the story. Let them 'build' an ark with computer animation using measurements provided in the story. Have them make ceramic or clay animals. Let them act out Noah's conversations with his neighbor's as they ridicule his backyard monstrosity. Let puppets sing the 'Arky arky' song. Finish up by watching clips from Bible videos while eating popcorn in a rainbow emblazoned bag. See if the story isn't ingrained and in their hearts by the end of the five weeks or so. Looking for a way to revitalize your Sunday School program? Read this book!
