St. Martin’s Day Sunday School Celebration for Children and Teens
Each week in Sunday School, children learn character traits of “servant leaders”, those who serve God in everyday life. This week, we will focus on sharing and selflessness. It will be an exciting day for children and teens as they learn about St. Martin, the patron saint of our church. Crafts, St. Martin’s “torn cloak toast” and art projects will make this a special day to remember. Don’t forget! We will start casting roles for the Epiphany Pageant as well. All 4 year olds through 6th grade are invited to be a part of this fun St. Martin’s tradition.
Nursery (0-3 years)
Children will learn that “sharing is caring.” Through games, songs and art activities, they will see that St. Martin reminds us to share with our friends.
Children (4 years-3 Grade)
Children will learn how St. Martin tore his cloak to help cover a homeless man who was cold. They will even get to “tear the cloak” in chapel! Children will be asked how they can be like St. Martin to friends, neighbors and in the community. The fun will continue in Godly Play where the children will hear the story of St. Martin, told by a Godly Play storyteller.
Tweens (4-6 grade)
Tweens will think of other stories in the Bible that have similar themes of selflessness and brainstorm ways that they can be like St. Martin.
Teens (7-12 grade)
St. Martin was a peacemaker. Teens will debate the topic of peace, war, compassion and selflessness and how these ideas fit into modern society.
Don’t forget about our coat drive. Bring new or gently used coats to Sunday school in the education building through November 23. We will bring the coats into the sanctuary and place them in front of the altar for a blessing.
