Rotation Sunday School for 1st – 5th Graders
9:50 a.m. – 10:50 a.m.
The Christmas Story Adapted by the Children of Second Presbyterian
The children of Bible Village spent two weeks preparing this nativity video. On the first week they listened to the nativity story and then wrote their own versions. Miss Jeannie and Miss Mary took excerpts from each version and pasted them together to make the script for the movie that the children made the next Sunday. Voices were recorded separately from the actual video and the two tracks were weaved together with additional music and sound effects. The children celebrated Jesus’ birth with a film showing, popcorn, and many smiles at the birthday party for Jesus during the Sunday School hour.
“Jesus went to every town and village. He taught in their meeting places and preached the good news about God’s Kingdom.” Matthew 9:35

Bible Village 2015-2016
“The Quest for Identity”
We are excited about the implementation of a new rotational curriculum in Bible Village. Our workshops will be built around Brick by Brick, published by Cornerstones Publishing. Each year is sequenced to explore a theme – moving from the Old Testament in the fall bridged by Christmas, Jesus’ ministry in the winter bridged by Holy Week and the Resurrection and ending the year with Church History. The theme for this year is “The Quest for Identity.” 1st – 5th graders will explore a variety of stories in which people of faith travel a path that includes a struggle between everyday experience and their relationship with God.
