Photos of Cooking Workshops in the Rotation Model

Learn more about the Cooking Workshop in the Rotation Model.


Why "Cooking"?  Food symbolism, preparation, and sharing is at the heart of both the Jewish and Christian traditions. Jesus is the Bread of Life!  Through hands-on learning, taste and smell, our lessons take on a deeper significance and memory. In the traditional model, few teachers would take the time or create the mess. In Rotation, we recruit teachers who love the medium, and design cooking spaces that stay set up for all the classes.

Many Rotation Churches use their church kitchens for their Cooking Workshop.


Notice the fun "cafe" seating in this Cooking Workshop above and below!





Older members tend to have mad cooking skills and love helping the kids in the Cooking Workshop.



"O Taste and See that the Lord is Good!
