Faith Formation Kids Klub Grades 1st-6th

Faith Formation is offered both on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. 

Children’s ministry that uses multiple intelligence learning through the Workshop Rotation Model. Children participate in 4-5 rotations each year, with a five year sequence.  So throughout their years in children’s ministry, they will have studied 25+ of what we feel to be the most important lessons of the Bible; plus other special days in the church.  Sessions begin at Gathering Time and continue with the workshop of the day.

Workshop Rotation Model Summarized:

· Classes rotate to a new workshop each week for 4-5 weeks; the ‘rotation’ period.  

· During the rotation period only one Bible story is taught.  The entire rotation—every workshop, every week—is focused on learning that one Bible story, but in a different, hands-on way.

· A practical, flexible, adaptable, kid-pleasing, teacher-friendly, inviting, and educationally sound program.

· It is implemented with different learning styles to promote   Bible literacy.

· Creative, kid-pleasing, multi-dimensional learning environments (workshops) that teach Bible stories.

Bible Faith Lab

Christ the King presents 3rd graders with their very own Bible. A Bible Faith Lab helps them learn to navigate their Bible and is an important class for this milestone.  Students should bring their Bibles each week both on Sundays and Wednesdays because they are used each week in the workshops.  Children may also leave their Bible at CTK on the Bible bookshelf located in the Chapel.  Bible use is strongly encouraged and is built into each lesson in all the workshops.  

COMMUNION FAITH LAB

At Christ the King, Communion is a choice for parents as to when their child is ready to receive this sacrament.  Choose if you would like your child to wait until a particular age, participate in the instruction and then receive communion, or choose that your child can have communion sooner.  Either way, we do ask that all families be talking with their children about what communion is and participate in communion instruction (the Faith Lab) to deepen understandings.

The Communion faith lab is offered once per year in the spring. At the Lab, children will bake the Bread, paint their own Communion chalice, stomp grapes, see where and how Holy Communion is prepared, practice what happens at Communion, and finally, gaining a deeper insight into the sacrament of The Lord’s Supper.

Vacation Bible School

We will be partnering with Messiah for VBS each year we will rotate the location for VBS. Summer 2022 it will be hosted at CTK. We will have camp counselors from Green Lake Lutheran Ministries assisting with VBS. At Vacation Bible School, it’s our mission to share the good news of Jesus Christ, to teach the importance of the Bible, and to have FUN!  Join us for an amazing week of music, games, tie dye, food, fun and friends!

Tentative Dates June 20-24, 2022

Wacky-Doodle-Logo

A week of amazingly fun adventures and prayer doodles.

Prayer doodles are a big part of Wacky-doodle and as always our theme verse comes from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.  We think the power of prayer is so important in our lives and we want children to learn how fun and easy it is to talk to God. Wacky-doodle is open to anyone in grades 5th-8th Grade.

O my people, hear my teaching, listen to the words of my mouth.  We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.  …which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children, so the next generation would know them…and they in turn would tell their children.  ~ Psalm 78:1-6
