All of us have learned to walk, to talk, to eat. Eventually, we are taught to read, write, and do mathematics. In the same way we learn throughout our life how to live with Jesus in his Kingdom.
This is the overarching goal of our plan for Catechesis (Christian Education).
We focus on teaching the Bible. Our younger children (K-3rd) are taught a curriculum based on the Jesus Storybook Bible. Our older children (4th-6th) interact with substantive content of What’s in the Bible with Buck Denver.
Our Youth Group builds on this foundation of Bible knowledge with rotating series of lessons from To Be a Christian: An Anglican Catechism, continuing engagement with Scripture, focuses on issue of Christian living, and other practical topics.
These individuals make up our Knowing Christ class, which focuses on growing more familiar with and confident in elements of the Christian faith. We want to know Christ and become people increasingly “prepared to make a defense to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence” (1 Pt 3:15).
