CHILDREN’S FORMATION NEEDS TEACHERS

teachers 818

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Children’s formation (aka Sunday school) is in desperate need of teachers. We use a unique curriculum that allows teachers to work with the same story for several weeks. Workshops include art, cooking, games, computers, music, science, drama, and video. This allows our children to use all of the multiple learning styles and experience the story in various ways. Teachers can sign up to lead these workshops from 1–3 weeks in a row. We need storytellers, workshop leaders, assistant leaders, and snack providers.

Please contact Jimmy Wright ASAP formation@felcaustin.org
