Religion

We want your child to know that God wants all people to come to faith in Jesus and to be saved.  God makes us His children as the Holy Spirit works faith in us through His Word and in Baptism, just as He did with the man from Ethiopia.  But, just like Philip, we can joyfully share God’s Word with others.  Missionary work is not just about people in faraway lands.  It is also about people who live in your city and neighborhood who may not know Jesus as their Savior.     Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.  Romans 10:17

Art – Georgia O’Keeffe was a famous American painter who painted flowers, greatly magnifying them to the point that they went off the edges of the paper.   We looked closely at a variety of silk flowers to give inspiration to our reproductions of her technique and style.   

Fitness Center – No sitting around watching TV and eating chocolate bon-bons for this group.  We enjoyed utilizing our dramatic play workout station.  This is a top of the line establishment where membership must be verified with a personalized ID card upon arrival.
