GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Parents have had to become teachers during the Coronavirus pandemic, but it’s not just for school. The Price family is using their church’s virtual Sunday school to help their kids learn about God from home.

“They need that learning and they need to be, even that classroom setting helps them a bunch,” said Jason Price.

It’s all possible through Trinity United Methodist Church’s virtual Sunday school program. It’s a five part series called Where in the World is God. It’s centered on mission work happening throughout the country.

“I send an email out to all of our families, and in it has some attached documents,” said Christina Landenberger, Director of Family Ministry.

The church sends them a link to teaching videos. They also provide activity sheets and supplies along with it. The videos have kids sing songs, draw, go on scavenger hunts, and other activities.

“It’s really empowered parents to be in charge of their Christian education for their children, whereas before, they might of left it to the church and the church educators,” said Landenberger.

The church is on the second week of the series, and families can get them done at their own pace. The Price family likes to do it every Sunday at 10 a.m. to keep the same routine as they had when they attended church in-person.

“It’s always fun to just do the activities and watch them sing and dance,” said Candi Price.

The Price’s believe their kids need god more than ever, “The kids have lost enough so it’s nice for them to be able to have something that they can still do and enjoy,” said Jason.

Trinity United Methodist Church also streams all their worship services online. People can watch them on Facebook or YouTube at 10 a.m. every Sunday.
