At St. Matthew UCC we believe strongly in the workshop rotation model. The children will spend four to six weeks on one Bible story and rotate to a different class each week to learn the lesson in a new way. They attend workshops such as, drama, story telling, art, computers, cooking, science, etc. We feel that by the end of the unit the children will have a clear understanding of the Bible story. Each workshop has a leader who teaches the story and plans the activities. In addition, each group has a shepherd who stays with the same group of children from week to week, getting to know them and building a relationship with them.
