This is a small, date specific Liturgical wheel for the seasons of the church - like a church seasons calendar for use by your students. The colors used generally tie into the liturgical colors for most denominations.
A wheel is typically used to recognize one season flows into another in an endless circle, and a circle often represents God.
You may use our calendar/table of the dates, but please check with your minister, Sunday School Superintendent, or Director of Christian Education for the specific dates used in your church for this year, or next year* and any variation in the names of the seasons or days you may use. Easter vs. Resurrection Sunday is one example of the same concept with 2 different names. Many of the dates change from year to year. Some churches begin the Christmastide season on Christmas Day, while others include Christmas Eve.
Children are more apt to understand the church calendar when you show them actual dates, rather than being ambiguous.
For discussion tips and MORE information see our large Liturgical Wheel Poster.
The objective is to work with the class and have them write in the dates. In the center of the wheel you could have the students add special days your church celebrates within a season. See how it's done in the poster.
