Team Training Class
Our Team Training Class is open to those willing to come, and is held on Thursday’s at the Corvallis First Baptist Church. Class runs from 9:30-11:30am. During class you’ll see a demonstration of the material planned for the next week’s Good News Club®. This includes the Bible lesson, memory verse and review game, as well as suggested songs whose themes fit well with the week’s material. After the demonstration, we’ll take a look at the Bible passage behind the lesson and see what God has for us teachers to learn from the story.
This school year (2015-2016) we are using four different curriculum sets, running about 6 weeks for each set. Our first set of curriculum is “God Speaks To Me”, which will focus on teaching the children how God speaks through creation, His son Jesus, and His Word, and how to listen to His voice. The second set, “Jesus:God of Power and Glory”, will focus on teaching the children about Jesus’ eternal power.
If you’re using CEF® materials and are looking for ideas on how to use them in your class, are working with CEF in teaching a club already, or would like to see what a Good News Club looks like, then you should come to our Team Training Class!
Call the CEF Office (541-752-3740) for more information on Team Training Class and our current class schedule.
