Coptic New Year- Blessed Feast of the Nayruz and a new Sunday School year begins!

Good day friends,

A New Sunday School year begins:

Yesterday, we celebrated the start of the Coptic New Year (The Feast of the Nayruz) which also signals the start of a new Sunday School year. It was difficult to bid farewell to my beloved Sunday School angels but I was blessed to meet my new class and my co-servants. I will be serving Grade 1 and 2 this year.

To set a warm welcome tone for the little ones, I decorated the entrance with colorful helium balloons and greeted the children as they entered the class. Small gestures that had a big impact.

In order to welcome the students to a new year, we decided to have a short lesson regarding the Nayruz and its symbolism, followed by an icebreaker game.

Icebreaker game for children:

Here is a link to the icebreaker game. This game allowed the children to recognize the similarities that they have with their classmates and to share a few laughs (who knew that sushi or red peppers were favorite foods among first graders!!!).

My favorite Things

May God bless you abundantly throughout the remainder of the regular year and Coptic year.
