Little Explorer Team - Sunday, May 29th
Elephant (VPK) & Cheetah (Kindergarten) kids will hear the story during LARGE GROUP. During the 9:45 service, this will take place in the Watering Hole from 9:45 - 10:15, and then you will transition back to your rooms. During the 11:15 service, this will take place in the Playroom, from 11:30 - 12:00, and then you'll return to your rooms for small group activities.

Are you serving in the Giraffe room? You will not have a lesson at this time, but will be using the morning to help your toddlers learn how to "do" the classroom: sit & play at the table, have snack together, play in the play room, etc. We will slowly introduce coloring, crafts, etc., as the kids become more able to do them!
Watering Hole Team - Sunday, May 29th
9:45 Service Time
As we've been doing for some time, during the 9:45 service, our 1st & 2nd grade students will stay in the Watering Hole for Large Group on the benches. The change is that they will not be transitioning to the gym after large group, but will remain in Watering Hole for small group time. The 3rd-5th grade students will by in the gym for Large Group, and 3rd & 4th will stay there for small group, while 5th grade returns to the Zebra room for small group.
11:15 Service Time
From 11:10 - 11:25, the kids will play in the gym most Sundays. One teacher/leader should go over to help supervise in the gym (especially watching the bathrooms). By 11:30, the kids should be back in Watering Hole and on the benches. After being led in large group, the kids will split up into small groups: 1st/2nd at the front of Watering Hole, 3rd/4th in the back corner, and 5th in Zebra Room.
Memory Verse & Song!
This is a little different now! The memory verse challenge isn't going to be practiced during small group, but WILL be talked about during the large group lesson. All 3rd-5th graders (and any 1st & 2nd graders at 11:15) will be challenged to memorize Matthew 28:19, and there's a challenge option for older kids: Matthew 28:19-20. Our new memory verse song is below!
Our Elephant Room - 2nd graders at 9:45 (and Elephant & Kinder at 11:15) will be incorporating their memory verse into their large & whole group times. This month, they will also be singing the fun song below!
