The Trail

Our children's area has taken on a whole new look!!  We have changed the name to The TRAIL - which means Truly Radical Adventures in the Lord!!  There is only ONE TRAIL and it always points to Jesus!  We have started a new curriculum that includes our Toddlers all the way up to our 6th graders!  We are very excited about this as the Bible is one big story and all about redemption!  Our children are learning in exciting ways how the Word of God is aive and well and how all the Bible fits together.  Gospel Project is the curriculum we are currently using.

As you enter all the different classrooms you will see different areas on the TRAIL like the River Bend, Camp Site, Fire Side, and our Trall Lodge which includes the TRAIL gift shop as kids earn prizes for different things they do.  Our little ones are our little hikers and have backpacks to carry around and pull out things like a Bible when they are having story time.

Our goal is to develop children who are in the process of being totallly transformed by our amazing God.  We are providing them the resources to be warriors that stand strong and courageous for the kingdom!  

Overall scripture:

Joshua 1:9 – HAVE I NOT COMMANDED YOU?  BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS.  DO NOT BE AFRAID; DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO

Infants - Jesus always loves and takes care of me!

Scripture – Isaiah 40:11 -

He tends his flock like a shepherd.  He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to his heart.  He gently leads those who have young.

Toddlers – God’s book is the best book!  – introducing them to the Bible and that His word is always good – This is a good book that you cannot live without.  Time when we are reading all different books to them and they are taking in what they are hearing and seeing. 

Psalm 107:1  - Give thanks to the Lord for He is good.  His love endures forever

3’s – 4’s – God created me to love me!

Zephaniah 3:17

The LORD your God is with you,

He is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in you,

He will quiet you with his love,

He will rejoice over you with singing.

5's - K's - I can love and please my Jesus!

Psalm 18:1 I love you, Lord, my strength

1st & 2nd graders - Jesus helps me when I stay close to Him!

Psalm 23:1-4 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.  He restores my soul.  He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

3rd & 4th graders - I want to be like Jesus!

John 14: 12 – I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me, will do what I have been doing.  He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

5th & 6th - I will seve and share Jesus!

Matthew 5:14-16

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
