Some Rotation Sunday Schools have a "worship gathering" prior to the start of workshops.
Some create a "Worship Workshop" where they combine song, games, reflection, and movement.
Carol's opening post here points to a slightly different idea:
If your Sunday School and Worship Service are held at the same time, could doing some worship education and then taking a class back into to 'adult' worship be one of your workshops?
That would make this "workshop" not part of the Rotation's story, but more of a worship education class. A worthy idea.
I would like to hear from those of you that are using "attending worship" as a weekly Workshop.
We have 6 groups of kids (1st through 6th grade) and offer 6 workshops each week. Our Rotations are 4 weeks long. (Groups miss various workshops each month but it has worked out ok.)
Our biggest group - 1st grade - runs around 20 kids - 20 very active kids! We need to split the group, thus creating 7 groups of kids.
Big problem: no room to add a 7th workshop every week.
Potential solution - the 7th workshop is attend church service with your family.
We can see a lot of good in this idea but tell me about how it's worked for you. What are the potential logistical, or other, problems.
