    • One in Christ Curriculum
    • Use of beginner’s Bible and story Bible
    • Songs of praise
    • Prayers
    • Sharing a family interaction page, sent home weekly for in-home Bible lesson review
  • Chapel

    Chapel with Mr. Ben Mahnke, Staff Minister is every Wednesday at 8:30am at church. Every child and teacher will walk up and get to experience a church setting while Pastor retells the Bible lesson and connects it to the children’s every day life. They learn to listen, pray and to praise God. This is a wonderful experience for the children. We encourage parents to join their children at chapel services to show the importance of learning and knowing their Savior.
