Celebrate Wonder Children's Sunday School

Welcome to Celebrate Wonder! This new curriculum is all about honoring the spiritual life of children. The program offers experiential activities, spiritual practices, and reflection to help children make meaning in their lives. Celebrate Wonder is centered around Bible stories and encourages children to explore faith through Wonder Questions using classroom tools, such as a Wonder Cube, Wonder Box, and Wonder Mat. These tools invite children into conversation, which helps develop deeper connections to the Bible and to faith. Celebrate Wonder is about embracing and celebrating all children and all the ways in which they are spiritual children of God. In addition to classroom materials that feature photography of diverse children, the Celebrate Wonder program offers a new, colorfully illustrated Bible storybook and a quarterly Family Activity Book that is filled with activities to engage the whole family and questions to explore and wonder about at home. We are excited to offer children and their families this opportunity to explore the Bible and their spirituality in a new and exciting way! We hope you and your family will join us on this journey of exploring, celebrating, and wondering about faith. Celebrate Wonder is about embracing and celebrating all children in all ways. However, Celebrate Wonder reaches beyond the spiritual development of a child; it seeks to develop the whole child. With activities that educate, build character, offer teamwork and service opportunities, and encourage children to love their families, friends, and faith communities, Celebrate Wonder helps children grow into whole people, as well as being spiritually aware.
