2 1/2 years - Kindergarten
Typically 3-6 children
The Beginner Class guides young students in beginning to learn the Bible. They learn lessons from the Bible through interactive Bible stories, review sheets, songs, Bible drills, an application activity and a coloring page that brings the application verse into their modern lives. They also learn that the Bible is God's word and that we can always trust it and use it in our lives.
They begin to understand the parts of the Bible --Old and New Testament--and start learning all 66 books! Once they learn all their books they receive their own Bible. We also begin Scripture memory, based off of the Fighter Verses Program & ABC Verses. We encourage them to 'hide God's word in their hearts" (Ps.119:11) We have recently started using Badges to also encourage our students to learn scriptures and basic bible facts. Example: "What is the Bible?" - "God's Word." Every badge is a fun fact & helps us see their progress as they grow and learn more about God & His Word.
This class is a very energetic, filled with lots of movement and activities for this age. We provide a healthy snack for them as well. We usually have a teacher and a helper in this class, to help with the younger ones that are learning how to stay focused in a class room environment. It is a fun class for both the teachers and the students.
