January 2018 Rotation Unit:

Handel’s Messiah

Jan. 7, 14 & 21

Students will understand “The Messiah” is a piece of music using Biblical texts, express themselves regarding music and faith, understand why “The Messiah” is sung in churches throughout the world and why it is related to Christmas, Easter, and much more.


  • I Timothy 3:16
  • John 1:29
  • Isaiah 40:4
  • Matthew 1:23
  • Revelation 19:6
  • Workshops Include:

  • Moved by the Spirit: In response to 3 sections of “The Messiah,” students will use props to express themselves.
  • Music/History: Acting as Handel himself, the workshop leader will tell about his life and lead the students in song.
  • Thou Art: Using snack food as their medium, kids will express their emotions while listening to “The Messiah.”
  • In Rotation Sunday School, children grade 1 through grade 5 focus on the same theme or Bible story over the course of four weeks in a different workshop each week. They explore the story through art, drama, cooking, games, video, and other workshops that help them engage with the story in different ways. Each class has an adult “Shepherd” who accompanies them through the year and builds relationships with the children. Schedules are posted around the church building so you can easily know which room your child’s workshop is in on any given Sunday.
