Our Elementary-aged curriculum, 252 Basics, is based upon scripture found in Luke 2:52, “And Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and men.” Isn’t that how we as parents all want our children to grow — physically, mentally, and spiritually? By examining the life of Jesus, we see how God intends us to live our lives. The Three Basic Truths shared in 252 Basics are: “I need to make the wise choice.” “I can trust God no matter what.” and “I should treat others the way I want to be treated.” Monthly Life Applications, such as “Forgiveness”, “Courage”, “Persistence”, “Kindness”, “Patience”, etc. are reinforced through monthly scripture and true stories from the Bible which relate to the Life App and the scripture passage.
We begin our Sunday mornings with music and worship, collection of offering and reciting the Lord’s Prayer in a larger group setting. Then, we break into age-appropriate groups for our weekly Bible lessons. Our weekly video segment retells the Bible story in a unique way which elementary-aged kids can easily relate to. Through games, crafts, and storytelling, we learn more about the Bible story and learn our monthly scripture passage as well.
