If you are a new Sunday school teacher or an experienced teacher who wants to grow, this three-week course is for you. Sunday school superintendents and CE directors may also find the course useful for teacher training. We will be looking at teaching children from preschool through 6th grade as a calling and ministry.
We will be covering faith development; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual age level characteristics; prayer and spiritual practices; the Bible; Church History; curriculum; lesson planning; the teaching environment; and ways to partner with our students’ families and the rest of the congregation in their faith formation. Take this opportunity to grow as a teacher, as you meet and interact with others sharing the blessings and challenges of children’s ministry.
You will be able to access this course at your own convenience; a minimum of four to five hours per week is necessary to benefit from the course content.
Price: $45 This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU.
