This children's unit combines history and imagination. Using only what is found in scripture, we have almost no information about Jesus as a child, but by exploring the story of 12-year-old Jesus in the temple and our understanding of the ancient world, Jewish customs and the temple, we share theories about what Jesus' everyday life might have been like while he was growing up.
Other questions we tackle in this unit include: What might Jesus have done as a child? Why did he and his parents go to Jerusalem? What was everyday life in Jesus's time? What was the temple like? What might other people in that era have thought about the child Jesus? Appropriate for K-5th Grade.
Each WorkshopCycle unit includes seven workshops:
- Story & Games
- Drama & Activity
- Kitchen (food-related, but doesn't always need an actual kitchen)
- Publishing (Computer & non-Computer options)
pay one low annual fee to access to ALL units.
Use for Sunday School, VBS or special events --- a great way to stretch your budget!!
You can purchase cycles individually or purchase an annual congregational membership. Congregational members get access to all cycles and can download as many as are needed in a given year. You can download a cycle and if it turns out that you don't want to use that one, just download a different cycle without wasting the cost of a cycle you don't use. Plus, you can use cycles for special occasions (Christmas, Lent, etc.) and they are great for a VBS or Summer Camp program as well as Winter Camp, which is a growing trend in churches today -- the week after Christmas when parents need child care and children are eager have fun and learn.
Annual Memberships are VERY affordable!
