Worship and Wonder
Worship and Wonder is a program curriculum that presents a joyful way for children to worship God. It invites children and adults to experience the wonder and mystery of God through a unique storytelling format and multi-sensory materials. This story series moves children through the entire Bible. Colorful felt underlays set the scene for wood figures to play out the stories and allow children to expand their imagination. Textures of the various materials used and the wondering questions, allow even more senses to be stretched and developed. The figures, buildings, mountains and other tangible materials stimulate the visual and imaginative senses of all ages.
1st - 5th grade enjoy learning the bible through lessons, activities, and games.
6th - 8th grade learn and explore scripture through stories and current events.
9th - 12th grade kids discuss scripture and applying it to their daily lives.
