Education for Children

Our goal is to teach children God's truth from the Bible in a way that balances their knowledge with application to their lives. We open the way for each child to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our role is to supplement the spiritual education parents provide at home and assist parents as they teach their children about Jesus.

Children learn through lively songs of worship as well as Bible- related stories, activities, and life applications.

We also prepare our teacher volunteers to educate and nurture children in the Christian life. Each teacher is trained in our child protection policy, provided with quality teaching materials and supported and assisted by our staff and other volunteers.
