A New Sunday School year begins! Blessed Feast of the Nayruz, Coptic New Year

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 colourful 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 favourite foods among first graders!!!).

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