a nine-week Sunday School enrichment program
Our Heavenly Friends is a nine-week Sunday school enrichment program that teaches kids ages 4 to 11 about nine well known saints of the Church. It's not a curriculum and doesn't take over your class. It takes 5-10 minutes to present.
It comes in sets to serve 5, 10, 20, or 60 children, though custom orders are available through a special form (currently closed).
Over the course of nine weeks, the kids will learn about nine extraordinary saints and create a poster they can hang in their bedroom for the duration of their childhood.
What do the kids get? On the first day of the program, each child receives a heavy-duty cardstock poster, designed to survive the journey from church to home, a parent guide to explain to mom and dad what the program is about, and their first adorably illustrated sticker.
Each week, the child learns a simplified version of the saints life. Instead of just learning the what of a saint's life, Our Heavenly Friends also presents the WHY--why do we learn about the saints? What do they have to do with our every day struggles?
What do the servants get? Each kit includes a book for the servant with the stories of the saints, an explanation of the virtue associated with that saint, and a few tips for presenting the content. Each kit also includes extra supplies, so you can hang a poster in your classroom, give a poster to a visitor or a newcomer, or keep a kid from crying if they happen to lose one of the stickers.
Most servants have developed friendships with the saints. We consider them our mentors and our guides. We know their life stories, and we know what lessons we take and apply. But there really is no cohesive way to introduce the saints to your kids.
Our Heavenly Friends gives you a highly organized and personal way to connect the kids to the saints, to teach them about their lives, and to show them what virtues can be learned from them.
This is such a great program! We started today, and the kids loved it. For the first time, they were all raising their hands to answer my quiz questions after the video, even from the 4-year old to the 10-year olds. They loved the posters, too. Even the boys asked for coloring pages and stickers, which is unusual for them. Thank you so much for your hard work and enthusiasm. I have been trying to get our little Sunday School more up to date, and you are a great help.
I just want to thank you very much. Everything is wonderful. I am looking forward to getting more materials from you.
I'm sending this to tell you that yesterday we started the Our Heavenly Friends Program. The kids were really excited about it!! Can't thank you enough for this wonderful work!
