O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds - Psalm 71:17

Our 3rd-4th grade class continues the curriculum (Our Spiritual Heritage) begun in the previous class. This curriculum is a comprehensive study of most stories in the Old and New Testaments. Timelines are used to help the children understand where each story fits in Biblical history. Family Bible study at home is also strongly encouraged and is a critical part of the approach of this curriculum.

As the children in this class are growing in maturity, they are given opportunity to explore more fully the truths revealed in the stories and applications that can be made. The lessons are taught in an engaging way to help the children grasp the concepts and remember the key elements of each study and how they fit into God's overall plan.
