Our elementary Bible program incorporates an age-appropriate Bible curriculum, daily devotional and prayer time, weekly chapel, and service projects within our community. We are blessed with caring, Christian teachers who create a classroom environment that encourages students to explore new learning, treat others with respect, and know that Jesus loves them. We believe this program effectively prepares students with a spiritual foundation to love God, love others, and love life using the Bible to shape how the students see God’s story of redemption at work in them and around the world.
The Elementary school uses the DeepRoots curriculum published by the Defendable Faith Institute. The following themes direct units of study and daily lesson plan content from passages in the Bible. Students at all grades will have passages of scripture that they will memorize.
Kindergarten: Familiar Bible stories that emphasize God’s loving care and the story of God’s work in history.
Grade 1: Explores the Biblical story from Creation to the children of Israel entering the promised land.
Grade 2: Follows the four gospels of the New Testament learning about the life of Christ.
Grade 3: Follows the account of the Children of Israel from Abraham to the coming of our Messiah.
Grade 4: Digs into the accounts of the early church.
Grade 5: Returns to a study of the divided kingdom as recorded in the Old Testament.
All grades cover units teaching inductive Bible study and special studies that celebrate the Christian holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
