Bible Skills, Drills & Thrills

1st - 3rd Grade Bible Buddies  Sunday evenings during the school year from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m, 1st - 3rd  grades, meet to learn how to use the Bible finding chapters and verses, memorize scripture verses and hear about Biblical characters and places in a fun,noncompetitive format.

4th - 6th graders  learn about the Bible, how to use the Bible, memorize Bible verses, learn to place Biblical characters and places into a time-line, great hymns of the church, our own church history and Baptist distinctives. The "Building Blocks of Faith Development" is our guide.

All the children enjoy a snack supper together.

Bible Verses for Each Age are chosen for children to learn and memorize.  These come from the FBC "Building Blocks for Faith Development". We strongly believe that FBC's "Blueprint for Faith Development" is a developmentally appropriate way to nuture children to develop the skills needed to one day choose a relationship with Jesus Christ for themself.  They are posted in the Bible Study rooms and emphasized by the teachers. Each child is also encouraged to memorize and use their Life Verse.

TUESDAY

Chik Fil A  Devotions - 7:00 - 7:30 a..m.  during the school year

We meet together to share scripture and a devotion that is relevant to children's lives. We pray for one another and then go to school.  We try to arrange for carpools to school if needed.

WEDNESDAY

Graded Choirs (5:45 - 6:30 pm) (click here for information about Children's Choirs)

 FBC.com (Missions Education) (6:30 - 7:15 pm)

Our boys and girls learn about mission work in our state, our nation and world. They learn to pray for others who are involved in missions and they learn that they too can be involved. Music, crafts and sometimes even snacks reflect what they are studying. We have found that this study opens their eyes to their world and the greatness of their God.
