Sunday Discipleship Rotation for children, grades K-5, returns for a fourth year! Over the course of nine months and 13 themes, children will explore stories of Scripture through drama, science, cooking, games, crafts, storytelling, and more! Themes include Moses, Birth of Jesus, Beatitudes, the Lord’s Prayer, the Parable of the Sower, Healing Bartimaeus, Jesus’ Resurrection, Saul’s Conversion, and Creeds.
Each week elementary children will rotate between centers as they explore the Biblical story through a different lens. For instance, with Moses, children will explore Moses birth, plaques and the Ten Commandments through games, drama, movies, cooking, and art over the course of nine weeks. (F&E 200, 202, 205)
Ages 3-4 will discover stories of the Bible through a new resource called The Beginner’s Bible Curriculum. While many children will be familiar with this Bible, they will enjoy engaging stories through art, drama, crafts and much more. (A&E 303)
Nursery is available for children up through and including two-year olds. (A&E 302)
Grades 6-7 (F&E 207) Younger youth will get an overview of the Biblical story as they use The Story as their resource. Designed to engage teens in knowing the total Bible story, young people will cover Genesis to Revelation in a way that will captivate them in Bible study.
Confirmation (F&E 204) In this engaging nine-month class for young people, grades 8-12, who want to explore discipleship at Salisbury Presbyterian Church, young people will explore who they are, what they believe, and what it means to be a disciple/member of Salisbury Presbyterian Church. The class includes community outreach, service, and at least one off-site retreat. Consistent worship attendance is an expected part of the class.
High School, Grades 9-12 (F&E 206) Older youth will get an overview of the Biblical story as they use The Story as their resource. Designed to engage teens in knowing the total Bible story, young people will cover Genesis to Revelation in a way that will captivate them in Bible study.
Adult Sunday Discipleship provides an array of topics to challenge a diverse group of people in their faith journey. Each class meets throughout the year.
Current Events (A&E 405) is a discussion-based class that helps connect current events with faith and Scripture. Participants of the class receive a weekly Wired Word email that takes a news event from the week and links Scripture to the news story and how we might respond.
Faith & Family (A&E 402) uses multiple short-term studies focusing on the Bible and topical issues pertinent and applicable to families. Curriculum this year include Liking Jesus, Christianity & World Religions, God’s Messy Family, The Joy Stealers, and much more!
Bible Study (A&E 404) is designed for those who want to take a closer look at Scripture, exploring books and topics found within the Bible. This year the class begins with a study of the Holy Spirit.
Mary Martha (A&E 400) is designed specifically for women. This discussion-based class offers fellowship and study with a woman’s need in mind. Studies this year will include Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible, Guardrails, Seven-Mile Miracle and more!
International Class (A&E Gym) is a lecture-based class and the largest of the adult classes. The class follows the International Lesson curriculum. Members in this class follow a thematic, lectionary-based calendar in the study of Scripture.
Life Application (A&E 407) requires no preparation and provides plenty of opportunities to discuss, or to sit back and listen. Each week offers a stand-alone topic, making it easier to pick-up after being away. Studies this year include Galatians; Everybody, Always; Whisper; Unshakeable Hope; and Grateful.
