Upper Elementary, 3rd-5th Grades

Gina Thomas, Director

3-D is an exciting 3rd grade Sunday School experience on the third floor of the Main Building. During the school year, August through May, using a modified Workshop Rotation format, the children enjoy using their new Bibles in an original Canterbury curriculum – Digging into Scripture; Devoting our lives to Jesus Christ; Becoming His Disciples”. 

4th and 5th graders can be found on the third floor of the Main Building enjoying the Worshop Rotation model of learning in the Canterbury KindDOME. Under the guidance of committed adult leaders, children learn the major stories of Scripture in a two-year rotation that includes engaging assembly time, Bible memory work and hands-on activities.

Lower Elementary, K5- 2nd Grade

Amy Knight, Interim Director

Sunday School at Canterbury is AWESOME! We are using a new Sunday School curriculum from Cokesbury this year for our 5K-2nd grade children. The Deep Blue curriculum is an age-appropriate Bible survey that includes an engaging video segment each week, supports our United Methodist beliefs, and introduces a variety of Bible Stories to our children each season. The age level milestones set by our church are also incorporated into the weekly lessons. The milestones, the Deep Blue curriculum, and assembly in Hallelujah Hall make for a fun and successful Sunday School hour at Canterbury!
