A Brief Introduction to the Sunday School Ministry at St. John Lutheran Church

Children have a variety of interests, skills and learning preferences. This is why we have adopted an exciting and creative approach to Sunday School—the “Workshop Rotation Model”.   One Bible story is presented over the course of several weeks through a variety of stations. Each station involves the children in different learning activities such as art, cooking, drama, music, games, puppets, video, storytelling, computers, science, etc. The schedule and room assignments are listed in Worship bulletin each Sunday. Children age 3 through 6th grade are invited to participate.

Here is how it works:

  • Spaces are transformed into interesting, interactive workshop stations
  • Classes rotate to a different station each week and experience the Bible story in different ways
  • Repetition helps memory retention and provides opportunities for in-depth exploration
  • Children love the variety and want to come
  • Adult “Guides” stay with each age group throughout the year, providing continuity and nurturing to their students
  • Classes are on Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:50.


While we want our children to have fun in Sunday School, that is not the most important consideration for using this model of Sunday School. We want our children to have a saving relationship with the Lord and to grow in their faith and to put their trust in God.
