Children's Rotation Sunday School
Exploring God's truth through storytelling, art, drama, video, games, and other mind-stimulating activities allows kids to learn the way God made them to learn - utilizing all the pathways He's built into their minds and hearts.Rotation Sunday School's unique approach to teaching God's word provides kids with faith-building experiences designed to build a strong biblical foundation for their walk with Christ. This curriculum helps us, the teachers and leaders, plant seeds of discipleship in the lives of children.
Paradise U.M.C. has five Workshop zones that each child visits over a five week course. These zones are:
    *GOOD SHEPHERD'S INN - Children settle into a cozy atmosphere and enjoy a Bible storyteller drama, then make and munch a yummy snack that ties in to the story.
    *SEASIDE STUDIO - For the artist in every child! Kids create personal artistic expressions of their spiritual growth and response to the Bible story.
    *STARGAZER THEATER - Let kids be the stars! This workshop sets the stage for Bible study through all kinds of performing arts - puppets, music and drama.
    *MOUNTAINTOP PRODUCTIONS - The tantalizing smell of popcorn welcomes kids to this workshop where they view and analyze clips that expand the scope of the Bible story.
    *BIBLE GAME ZONE - Put those growing minds to the test with an interactive Bible story review followed by fun and fascinating games. Here's the chance to get rowdy with lively games that challenge kids to recall and relate to important points of the story.
As always, the Bible story is the core, the constant focal point and the driving force in every zone area. Each room is decorated to enhance each theme. The rooms are welcoming and kid-friendly. Take time to look and see what is available for every child. All preschool through 6th grade children are invited to come and learn God's word in this amazing fun way!! Teachers include Brenda Ansell, Heidi Durstine, Nicole & Jeremy Hough, Risa Hughes, Kaitlyn Knopsnider, Michael Durstine, and Carrigan Shaulis.

Today's Disciples 
Rev Terry Guiste, currently studying "Be Mature (James) Growing up in Christ" By Warren W. Wiersbe
Yes, having Christ as your personal Savior is only the beginning. After that, you have to grow up! Many problems in our lives are caused by spiritual immaturity. God wants us to grow up, not just grow old. Amd God has given us the formula for maturity in the Epistle of JAMES. Perhaps of all the books in the New Testament, James most squarely focuses on results. His pull-no-punches approach to spiritual, his preference for actions over words, makes his text the perfect backdrop for a study of how to grow in our faith. In this study, Warren Wiersbe leads you through this practical book with advice on how to overcome temptation, controlling the tongue, effective prayer, how ti practice what the Bible teaches, and much, much more. If you're going to make progress in these areas, you will need a growing faith and dependence on Christ because as James claims, "Every good and perfect gift is from above".
Faithful Friends
Marvin Snyder and Cynthia Sowers, currently studying the Book of Leviticus. All ages welcomed.
