What will your child learn?
Your child will have tons of fun singing songs, playing games, listening to story time, doing crafts and cool science experiments, as well as enjoying a delicious mid-morning snack.
Daily story time lessons will teach:
Day #1 - God Creates through the creation story in Genesis 1
Day #2 - God Helps when Miriam cares for baby brother Moses (Exodus 2:1-10)
Day #3 - God Loves - The story of Jesus' own baptism (Matthew 3:13-17)
Day #4 - God Calms as he calmed the disciples during a storm (Luke 8:22-25)
Day #5 - God Sends - The story of Jesus encouraging the disciples through a shared meal on the beach. (John 21:1-17).
It will be a great time for your children as they learn about the belief that God created the Universe and that God still cares for all that God has made and asks us to care too.
