New Bible Study Opportunity for 1st - 5th graders beginning May 31.  Unseen, The Armor of God for Kids by Priscilla Shirer

Wednesdays, May 31 – July 12, 6:00-6:45 - Esther Dennis is leading a 7-week children’s Bible study for rising 1st through 5th graders. Children who wish to participate will need to purchase the activity book from Lifeway or Amazon. Grades 1 and 2 should purchase the younger kid’s activity book. Grades 3, 4, and 5 should purchase the older kid’s activity book.

Please note, children involved in Celebration of Liberty rehearsals May 31 – June 28 will rehearse after the Bible study from 6:45-7:45. Other than the Unseen, Armor of God, Bible study, we will not have children’s Wednesday night summer programming. We will have childcare for children of parents involved in Wednesday evening activities such as student ministry, choir, and orchestra.
