5th gr Who Am I? Class
Sundays, Jan. 6 - March 10 / 10-10:45am / P304
Developmentally speaking, it is vital for children to have a sense of competency related to certain skills in order to begin forming their individual identity. In the church our hope is that a significant part of that identity is grounded in being a child of God. So in earlier grades we focus on learning Bible Stories. In 3
rd grade we learn more about how they were formed and the overarching themes of scripture. In 4
th grade the Catechism class reviews commandments, covenants, and our worship life. Now in 5
th grade we are at a stage in life where we can have beginning conversations about what it really means to be a child of God…where do I belong, who is my neighbor, and what is my purpose?
Each child is given a copy of Katherine Paterson’s book titled, “Who Am I?” We encourage children and parents to read along, but it is not required.
