- A Bible story is explored in-depth through a variety of creative teaching mediums (“workshops”) over a period of 5 weeks.
- Kids from age 3 to 6th grade, whether attending Sunday’s downtown or Saturday’s at Green Wood, are all focusing on the same story, which allows families to share learning at home.
In April, we are continuing our study of Jesus’ forgiveness of Peter.
Can you imagine how Peter felt when he heard the rooster crow?
