Sunday School makes dream coats for Joseph

Our Sunday School learned who Joseph was during our session on September 25.

Every week, teachers Kathy Hume and Pam Dugas-Var welcome children with activities and stories that are based on the same Bible story being used in the main worship service. These Bible readings follow the Narrative Lectionary. This calendar tells the story of God’s saving work with humanity through the viewpoint of a single Gospel, from a beginning story in September through Pentecost Sunday in late spring.

Joseph gets a new Dreamcoat

To make a good dream coat, start with a basket-style coffee filter and a watercolor felt tip marker.

Add lots of colors! Like a rainbow! Only brighter!

Now you have plenty of colors. Time to get it wet with a good spray of water. Watch all the colors melt together.

This one looks very soft, like pastels. It would make a really beautiful coat.

Now it’s time to find an outline of Joseph’s coat. You can trace it onto your gorgeous colored material now.

When you’re done, cut it out. Give Joseph his coat. He is shivering!

There are too many colors for one coat. But Jacob tried to use them all anyway. He loved Joseph dearly. Joseph was the apple of Jacob’s eye.

While the adults grappled with sibling jealousies and forgiveness, the children learned who Joseph is and why he is important to our story. They saw drawings of the beautiful coat that Joseph’s father, Jacob, gave to him. They got to make their own version of Joseph’s coat, using watercolor markers, coffee filters, and a lot of creative energy.

Sunday School will be learning about other Bible characters in the coming weeks, including Hannah, David, Isaiah, and Daniel. Our stories are leading up to the birth of Jesus. After Christmas we will hear stories of what Jesus taught and did.

Waterford UCC welcomes children every Sunday!
