Bible Skills, Drills, & Thrills
On Sunday evenings during the school year we meet from 5:00 - 6:45 pm to have a good time while we challenge each other to; learn more about the Bible, to memorize Scripture, to be able to place people, places and events into a Biblical time-line, to understand the importance of the Bible in our personal lives, to learn of Baptist beliefs, great hymns of the church and our own church history. We do a lot of this with games and activities and also enjoy a snack supper with one another. We also prepare ourselves to lead in worship and missions.
BIBLE VERSES FOR EACH AGE
Bible Verses have been chosen for each age group from the "Building Blocks for Faith Development" . These are posted in each Sunday School room and teachers encourage the students to learn them through the year.
Graded Choirs. Preteens sing in the Children's Choir. For more information go to the music page.
