Odyssey Experience

Sunday mornings, children ages 3 years to 6th grade will experience Faith's Odyssey an Adventure Through Time. The children will be immersed in stories of the Bible and get to dress in costumes as we travel back in time to meet different Bible characters each month and get a peek into what life might have been like. They will get to taste food, create crafts, and learn about how things might have been done during that time period. We have built a 3 year rotation with the goal that the children will have heard and experienced the major Bible stories twice by the time they reach Junior High. We want to get as many people involved as we can so that the work is light. We want adults to volunteer one month on, one month off helping to build strong foundations for each of the children. There are a variety of ways you can help.

Sign Up Today

We ask that you sign up ahead of time for your children to participate. This helps us keep track of how many children to expect so that we have enough volunteers and resources. You only need to sign up once, and we will hope that you join us every Sunday. It also helps us so that we can keep everyone safe, keep you informed about all the happenings of Faith's Odyssey, and let us know more about your children (especially any special needs). Thank you for your help with this. Please use the link below and fill out the form to sign up.

If you would like to be a volunteer, please email DCE Mary and inquire.

The Roles of Odyssey

You will portray a character from the Bible. You will be given a script to follow and maybe ad lib a little. You get to be the person sharing the story with the children. During the first year we met Adam and Eve, Abraham, Sarah and Isaac, Joseph, Moses, Jesus, and the Apostle John.
As a costumed actor, you will be portraying someone from the time period. You will have fun with the children making a craft that goes with the Bible story. There will be an easy craft, a mid-level craft, and a more difficult craft for the children to make.
It will not be the typical cookies and juice, but foods that would have really been consumed by our Biblical characters. We are not preparing a meal for the children but just a little taste of what people really ate to add to the experience, as if they were in the story itself.
If you love to be around children, and don't want any prep work, this would be the perfect area for you. You get to dress up in a costume, just like the children, and walk around with them. You will be in charge of making sure they get where they need to be and help them when they need it. There will be multiple guides to a group, so ideally the ratio will be 1 adult to 5 children.
