Principles for Church Education

We are thrilled to welcome The Rev. Dr. Donald Griggs as our guest presenter at's April 25th Zoom "Coffee Chat." Don will be speaking about his latest book, Axioms of Teaching in the Church: Affirmations of a Veteran Church Educator.

"Axioms" summarizes a lifetime of insights and experience teaching children, youth, and adults in the church, creating lessons and Bible resources, and training teachers and pastors.

In this free one-hour Zoom seminar starting at 3 pm Eastern on the 25th, Don will share insights from six of his twelve axioms and comment briefly on the other six. He will also reveal three axioms he wished he had included in the book! Following the presentation, there will be time for sharing and questions with Don.

About the Rotation Model and Organization of Our Site

The lessons and ideas in our Bible Story Lesson Forums are organized by creative teaching methods such as art, games, video, drama, and cooking. We call these medium-specific classrooms "workshops." Kids rotate each week to a new workshop, hence the name, "Workshop Rotation Model" (or "the WoRM" for short). All workshops teach the same Bible story for several weeks in a row. If you're using a traditional "new story each week" model, browse all the workshops for your story and pick one that fits your needs.

Read how the Rotation Model can help with attendance fluctuations and irregular attendance.
