CC 1.2 God gathers Christians to worship Him This unit will be taught to students in their first year of school. Students will have a wide range of prior experiences with church buildings, with some attending a local church regularly, and some with absolutely no understanding of the function of a church. It is expected that the students will follow their interests in regards to how they demonstrate their thinking, using forms such as building, drawing, and writing to express their growing understandings.
CC 2.2 2.3 God gathers a community of Christians The unit of work demonstrates one approach that can be taken with Level 2 students and the merging of two Christian Church key ideas: The Christian community is shaped by and shapes its cultural and historical contexts, and, Christians pray, worship and celebrate the sacraments.
