Reply to "Discussing the Return, Rebuild, and Renewing of Sunday School as we come out of the pandemic"

Hello -- Thank you all for the great comments and advice - it's all so helpful.

We've offered "Holy Experiment"** via Zoom since the beginning of the pandemic, which was well received, but I'm THRILLED to share that we'll be offering in-person, outdoor Sunday School beginning June 6th. Still working on the lesson plan, but am leaning toward some sort of "show & tell" - bring in a favorite Holy Experiment craft, a positive symbol from pandemic (heart rocks, an item from their at-home altar, etc.) We're a church in transition, so our 1916 rectory is currently unoccupied. In case of inclement weather, we'll meet in the very large living room.

I'm planning on holding children's programs three Sundays per month over the summer. Am currently re-connecting with volunteers; am hosting a Zoom mtg. next week to hear their concerns, hopes, etc. - both for the summer, as well as the autumn.

Dawn, I especially like your suggestion of a summer campaign to reach out to the families who have not attended since March 2020; thank you. During "normal" times, attendance drops in the winter because many families ski, so we'll be contacting families who haven't been in church since Advent 2019! I hope a few of my tried & true teachers will help with this - it's great outreach, plus re-energizes them, too.

Great work, rotation.org - thank you for the inspiration.



**Wormy adds: "Holy Experiment" is Debbie's church's name for their "wildly popular, twice-monthly, fun-filled virtual program available via Zoom, which includes formation activities that can be done at home."
