CHURCH SCHOOL: PRE-K TO 8TH GRADE
Growing in Faith, Hope, and Love
We have an awesome year planned! Our focus during the 2017-2018 Church School Year is SCRIPTURE. We will be diving into the Bible to learn about God’s word.
At the end of the year the children will have a special presentation to showcase all they have learned throughout the year.
Each class will have their own theme, as seen below.
I look forward to another exciting year!
Yours in Christ’s service,
