Curriculum

Our Children's Ministry utilizes a theological curriculum for children called The Praise Factory developed by Connie Dever, wife of Mark Dever, senior pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC. Mrs. Dever has been teaching children and developing curriculum for use in churches in the United States and abroad for 26 years.

The Praise Factory is a six year, multi-age children’s systematic theology curriculum for elementary school children. It is comprised of 104 key biblical truths -- called "Big Ideas"-- divided into 16 units, common to a systematic theology. These biblical truths expand the children’s understanding of the same 12 big questions and answers used in the two preschool curriculums and add four additional big questions and answers. Within each 3-week Big Idea there is an Old Testament, New Testament and Church History/Missions story presented. Each week’s curriculum includes 8 different activities to reinforce the Big Idea concept and story.
