FALL 2018 LESSONS


Attention Volunteers & Parents (New for Fall 2018)

  1. To better serve our families, we've made adjustments to how our classrooms are organized, beginning 9/2/18. Formerly "Nursery" is now birth - 2 years. Formerly "Toddler Room" is now 3 years - Kindergarten. Formerly "Big Kids" is now 1st gr. - 5th gr. 
  2. Our nursery now has age-appropriate gospel activities. Here are 3 quick and easy ways to prepare for interacting with babies.
