Mini Saints in Training Begins!
Mini-Saints in Training (ages 3-6) Begins at 10am
Sonja Stewart and Jerome Berryman wrote Young Children and Worship as an exciting method for introducing three- to six-year-olds to the wonder of worship. Their approach, which integrates religious education and worship, has been presented at numerous workshops and training sessions. Based on the authors’ experiences, the methods described here will be invaluable to teachers helping children understand and appreciate worship. Young Children and Worship is a program curriculum that presents a joyful way for children to worship God. Young Children and Worship move children through the entire Bible, from “The Creation” to “Pentecost” with several parables included. It invites children and adults to experience the wonder and mystery of God through a unique storytelling format and multi-sensory materials. Colorful felt underlays set the scene for wood figures to play out the stories and allow children to expand their imagination.
Textures of the various materials used and the wondering questions, allow even more senses to be stretched and developed. The figures, buildings, mountains and other tangible materials stimulate the visual and imaginative senses of all ages.
