Grades 6–8 | During Sunday Sermons
Middle School Bible Instruction: Downstairs in the library

Each Sunday morning children ages five through fifth grade are dismissed from our time of corporate worship to attend a special time of learning in an age appropriate environment. Our teachers are experienced working with children and love to teach God’s Word, the Bible. Our curriculum follows a two year cycle of going through the Bible, focusing half of the year on the Old Testament and half on the New Testament. With games, skits, experiments, and other interactive activities, children learn about people in the Bible and the ways in which they responded to God. They are then challenged to apply what they have learned to their own lives.
