Discover 4 Yourself and Level UP – 4th-5th grade: We are excited to offer this new discipleship path! During the fall semester, children will take the Discover 4 Yourself class and during the spring semester, children will take the Level UP course.
Discover 4 Yourself introduces the basics of inductive Bible study, observation, interpretation, and application. As kids learn about people in the Bible, the way things were done in biblical times, the amazing miracles performed, and numerous terrific adventures found in the Bible, they will discover that God’s Word speaks to them right where they are today.
Kids are not merely the leaders of tomorrow; they can have a measurable impact on the Kingdom right now! In Level UP, kids learn foundational biblical leadership truths as they develop their imaginations and put creative thinking into action. They will also work together to design a service project that impacts a real need in the community.
Case for Christ: for Kids and Apologetics for Kids – 4th-5th grade: This discipleship path will provide age-appropriate answers to tough questions that kids ask about God, Jesus, faith, grace, creation, and the Bible. During the fall semester, children will take the Case for Christ for Kids class and during the spring semester, children will take the Apologetics for Kids course.
Case For Christ: For Kids is an apologetics class for children who are searching for ways to answer some tough questions, as well as ways to confidently defend their faith. This class will help them answer big questions on the existence, miracles, ministry and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.
The Apologetics for Kids curriculum is “It All Begins with Genesis” and focuses on the importance of a biblical worldview and why a worldview must be founded on the authority and accuracy of God’s Word. Kids will become prepared to read and understand the Bible and apply it to their own lives – strengthening their faith and equipping them to share with others and defend what they believe.
