Reply to "HOW TO do Online and At-Home Sunday School, "ZOOM," Ways to Connect with Kids"

We are a small church with a small Sunday School (2-8 kids on a given Sunday) and an all-volunteer staff. So we are keeping things on the simple side. We aren't presenting an online lesson for them to watch--we are supplying a simple lesson that the families will do together on their own.

Since our state is currently under "shelter in place", most families are juggling working and working at home and home-schooling so we wanted to keep things simple for them. And because shopping can be a bit of a nightmare, we wanted them to be able to use what they would probably have at home. For this upcoming Sunday, if  they have rocks and paper (not scissors!), markers and glue then they are good to go! Definitely NO activities using toilet paper! 

I went through my treasure trove of old Rotation lessons from the past and also scrolled through what our Rotation.org site had to offer. I put together a small lesson with the Bible reading and a few points to make, also linked to a Saddleback Kids video. Then I am giving two short activities paired with a few questions--they can do one or both. 

This coming Sunday, we are doing the Palm Sunday story. The art activity is taken from Jesus' comment to the Pharisees that if He told His followers to be quiet then the rocks would cry out. So they can decorate rocks with markers and fabric scraps and write "speech balloons" of what the rocks might be crying out. We also have a game--a take on HORSE, but called HOSANNA. There is a combo of answering questions and shooting baskets.

The following Sunday we are doing a Holy Week Overview. We don't normally have Sunday School on Easter Sunday but I am going to put together a lesson for that too, because who knows if our churches will be open then or not.
