Grade 1-5 SS
March Rotation Unit:
Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet
March 4th, 11th, 18th, & 25th
Jesus used his final meal with his disciples as a time of instruction. Of all the lessons taught that night, one stands out. During the meal Jesus got up from the table, removed his robe, tied a towel around his waist and, with a basin of water, went around the table washing the feet of each man present. By doing so, the one they called Son of God gave them a lesson on service no one will forget.
Kids will participate in a sensory walk – identifying different textures with their feet. They will talk about how they can use their feet for Jesus and make a foot soak to take home!
Kids will learn about Holy Week and act out a puppet show to illustrate the book “Little Rose of Sharon” by Nan Gurley.
Kids will hear a contemporary story of footwashing and talk about how they care for others in their lives. They will make “Soap on a Stick” to help keep their feet clean.
Kids will talk about Jesus washing the disciples’ feet as an act of service. Members of the missions committee will share about their experiences serving others, talk about how we serve others as a church and work on a service project together.
In Rotation Sunday School, children grade 1 through grade 5 focus on the same theme or Bible story over the course of four weeks in a different workshop each week. They explore the story through art, drama, cooking, games, video, and other workshops that help them engage with the story in different ways. Each class has an adult “Shepherd” who accompanies them through the year and builds relationships with the children. Schedules are posted around the church building so you can easily know which room your child’s workshop is in on any given Sunday.
