Children's Bible Study
"I have been teaching this class and it has been such a joy to share my faith and have them share their faith with me. My goal is to find new and exciting ways to help the children explore their faith and develop a life-long bond with Christ." - Laurie Sandham
The Children's Bible Study class usually starts around age 7 or 8, depending on the child's comfort level. They are not required to be fluent readers but need to understand that they will be opening their Bibles and following along each week and quite often will often be using their workbooks. They also need to be able to sit and engage in discussions. Children's Bible Study begins right at 10:00 am. We encourage the children to come to class as soon as they arrive at church so we can get a jump on that day's lesson. They are given the book, chapter and verse that they will be learning about that day and will each find it in their own Bibles. We go upstairs for children's talk and communion but the rest of the time in spent in the classroom. Time permitting, the children also take part in "Bible Challenge" games where they need to sort the books of the Bible as quickly as they can and "Bible Quiz" where they test their memory of what they have learned not only that day but earlier that year and sometimes even the previous year.
