Nursery | Preschool | Elementary | Club 56 | KCG | Parent Volunteers
Nursery uses songs, visual aids, sensory interactions, and crafts to teach children that God made us, God loves us, and God cares for us! Our curriculum helps early learners become rooted in God’s word as they take their first steps in his wonderful world! If you would like to know what exactly your little one is learning each week, please click here for our curriculum schedule.
Preschool uses The Gospel Project curriculum by Lifeway. The Gospel Project immerses kids in scripture and into the love of God. The children learn that the Bible is one big story about God’s love for them through Christ.
Besides a lesson, our preschoolers get to have creative play time, learn memory verses set to motions, worship and make crafts. The children are encouraged to meet new friends, volunteer during lesson time and reflect Jesus' love by loving their neighbors.

Areo Keller | Early Education Coordinator
Like our preschoolers, elementary students (K-5th grade) use Lifeway’s The Gospel Project curriculum. The Gospel Project aims for heart transformation through the gospel as children see how the gospel is present in the entire Bible, “not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.”
Each week in class, your child will have a time of praise and worship, a gospel-centered lesson and the opportunity for small group time. In small group time, volunteers lead children through application activities of what they have learned. In class, students get to know their peers and pray together.
It is our prayer and deepest desire that the Lord would use this curriculum and lesson format to help your kids go deeper into God’s word, grow in the gospel of Christ and then be able to share the joy and love they have received from God with others.
