MAKING SUNDAY SCHOOL IRRESISTABLE!
The Workshop Rotation Model is changing everything about children's Sunday School and we are proud to offer a rotation curriculum that includes sacraments and coordinates with the seasons of a liturgical year. Our Episcopal Sunday School curriculum has been successfully used by many different denominations because it is so easy to adapt with electronic files.
WorkshopCycles is a new way of experiencing Sunday School. It takes seriously the spiritual development of children while providing creative, hands-on activities to help children learn the stories of God and God's people. Children work on the same story or concept for several weeks, using different learning approaches each week. Each Unit includes workshops in Art, Drama,Music, Story, Computer, Movie and Kitchen. You choose the workshops that fit your congregation.
Designed for K-5th grade, each cycle provids detailed lesson plans (see partial list below) for seven workshops including scripts, activities and resources. WorkshopCycles makes recruiting teachers a breeze (they can lead just one cycle), is extremely practical for busy families, some with children who only can attend alternate Sundays
WHY TRY WORKSHOPCYCLES?
- Teaches Bible Basics!
- Children love it!
- Clear, detailed lesson plans!
- Proven educational method!
- Easier teacher recruiting! Flexible for busy schedules!

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. The membership also allows all of your teachers access to an online community for asking questions, sharing information and making adaptations
Although you can purchase cycles individually, a congregational membership is more economical. Congregational members get access to all cycles - including detailed lesson plans for art, drama, music, movies, stories and more! 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. The membership also allows all of your teachers access to an online community for asking questions, sharing information and making adaptations.
Annual Memberships are VERY affordable!
Your congregational annual membership fee is based on your congregation's Average Sunday Attendance (the number of children, youth and adults attending primary worship services on a normal weekend). This fee includes all the units in every cycle for all grades for an entire year.
