JL Creative Liturgical Seasons cover the duration of particular church seasons. Liturgical seasons help ground us in Christian tradition and provide a change of pace centered on spiritual development and faith practices.
Each lesson always begins with a time for sharing, which allows students to trickle in before the curriculum comes into focus. Next, the students hear the scripture selection. This is followed by several activities that reinforce the themes and concepts in the scripture. The time closes in prayer. Each week includes suggested script in bold for adult volunteers to read, but leaves space for organic conversation.
