The general format of the Bible curriculum is to enable students to personalize the principles taught throughout the week. The students will learn about God through the lives of the major characters throughout the entire Bible. At the beginning of the year, they will start with Creation and will be introduced to Cain and Abel, Abraham and Isaac, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Samson, Elisha, Daniel, and Jonah. At Christmas, they will hear the story of Christ’s birth and continue with the life of Christ during the spring semester. Weekly, students are given Bible memory cards that teach Bible verses as they learn the alphabet. Delightful Biblical songs about God’s truth and principles of living are added to capture the imagination of the five-year-olds.
