Event Details

If you are a new Sunday school teacher or an experienced teacher who wants to grow, this three-week course is for you. Sunday school superintendents and Christian education directors may also find the course useful for teacher training. We will be looking at teaching children from preschool through sixth grade as a calling and ministry. You will be able to access this course at your own convenience; a minimum of four to five hours per week is necessary to benefit from the course content. Week one will cover faith development as well as children’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual age level characteristics. We’ll also explore ways of using prayer and spiritual practices with children. An overview of the Bible and church history will be covered during week two. We will also look at the different types of curriculum available and the advantages and disadvantages of the different types. During the third week, we will cover lesson planning and the teaching environment including physical, spiritual, and social space. Finally, we’ll look at ways to partner with our students’ families and the rest of the congregation in their faith formation. Take this opportunity to grow as a teacher, as you meet and interact with others sharing the blessings and challenges of children’s ministry. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $45.

***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.***
