Classes for kids of all ages!
Baby Class – This class is available for little ones from nine months of age up to two years. We have wonderful teachers who sing to the children, show them pictures, physical objects, hand motions and tell them short colorful stories. The children may not understand theological concepts at this point, but they are being imprinted with a sense of God’s love as received through the kind attention of their teachers.
Pre-School Aged Classes – Children in this age range are fascinated with the stories of the Bible and the many wonders God has performed. Simplified versions of the Bible story are brought to life through story telling, pictures and songs. Simple and yet great truths imprint the child’s mind with the love God has for them. For example, God's love is made known by how He saved Noah and his family from the flood. They also learn to obey God's commands as they discover how Noah built the ark in spite of discouragement from others. The children are also taught to pray and put all their trust in God, through stories like Daniel in the lions' den. The children also learn by doing as they take turns praying for their concerns and for each other.
Elementary – Children in this age range are able to learn an amazing array of facts. In fact, learning and memorizing details is fun to most children, even when they really don’t understand what they are learning. Later, as they mature, they will be able to apply the truths learned earlier. Some of the things learned in our elementary classes include:
- The books of the Bible
- Periods of Bible history
- Differences between the Old and New Testaments
- Countless Bible stories and names of important Bible characters
- Significant Bible events
During these years we continue to teach them about the nature of God and how He has worked in the history of the world to accomplish our salvation. Through a variety of approaches, God’s love for them is emphasized and they are challenged to show that same love to others.
Middle School – Any parent knows that this is the stage of life when our children really begin to assert their individuality. Middle schoolers are starting to make decisions that will impact the rest of their lives. We use this class to encourage discussion and help these young people see how important faith in God will be as they continue to mature.
High School – By this time we are encouraging our students to think of themselves as young men and women. We ask them to take greater responsibility for developing their own faith and establishing Bible study and prayer habits that will serve them well throughout their lives. During their four years in high school, our curriculum will help them to understand and study every book in the Bible. They will also study the evidences for the existence of God, the validity of the Bible, and the resurrection of Christ. It is a joy to see these young people mature in their faith as they prepare to launch out into adulthood.
