How to Teach Sunday School Remotely!

During this time of social distancing, it can be hard to decide the best strategy for teaching Sunday School classes and other Christian Education curriculum. We here at East Youth want to help! Check out this week’s Sunday School and Corps Cadet materials: all uploaded into an easy format to help Corps Leaders instruct the youth in their corps remotely.

We hope this makes it easy to keep up-to-date on your corps programing. Each week will have an updated playlist of current material, ready for review and instruction. If you have any questions, please reach out to the Territorial Christian Education Director Lt. Josh Morales (joshua.morales@use.salvationarmy.org). He will be happy to answer any questions or walk you through how to use this software.
