Gospel Project:  Age 3 - Grade 5

The Gospel Project is a chronological Christ-centered Bible Study.  Over the course of threee years, participants will journey from Genesis to Revelation and discover how God's plan of redemption unfolds throughout scripture.  We offer this curriculum for all ages, preschool through adults.  The kids meet at 9:15 a.m. for "Rally Time", which is a 15 minute multi-age group time of music, drama, and puppet shows.  After "Rally Time", they will meet for their lessons.

Summer 

 

Vacation Bible School:  Age 4 - 5th Grade

Every summer we present a week of VBS for all children ages 4 through 5th grades.  We have a wonderful week of amazing Bible adventures, unforgetable songs, memory-making crafts, tasty treats, and thrilling games.  We have both adult and teenage volunteers from our parish that willingly give their time and talents to this ministry.  Our VBS is designed not only for the children of our parish but also for the community, and often serves as an introduction to our children's ministry.
