We recently had a department planning meeting to plan all the fun things for the year!  Each month seems to have it's challenges and excitement!

Sunday School Attendance Wall

I like to make a fun attendance board instead of the standard chart we've all seen. In August we used this one: I'm Lovin' It at Sunday School attendance board empty I actually took a fry cup apart, traced it, cut it out, added the name labels, laminated it, folded and taped it together and put it on the wall.

Fry cup full of fries!

Anyway, of course during December we went through the story of Jesus' birth and had a few fun games and activities to go with it.  We model our service after "big church" with singing, prayer, scripture, offering and a "sermon
