Class participants hold each other accountable for memorizing and discussing one Bible verse each week. Focus is on the meaning of the verse with the main benefit being able to understand what it says and apply it to our lives. This is a very low-key way to hide God’s word in your heart to form a life-changing practice.

E. Stanley Jones, the great Methodist Missionary to India said it best: “Unless the Holy Spirit fills, the human spirit fails.” The Book of Acts is entitled the Acts of the Apostles in most of our Bibles. But a reading of this book will quickly convince us that these are indeed the acts of the Holy Spirit. Please join Pastor Josue for a verse-by-verse study of the Book of Acts.

Nursery (age 3 years and under) While parents attend class on campus, these children get play time and a small lesson about a simple Bible truth. This is a nurturing environment to help our youngest kids begin to see church as a fun, loving place they want to be.
Early Childhood (4 years old - Kindergarten) This age group has a different lesson theme each month, but they always focus on one of three main truths. God loves Me. God made me. Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Each week of the month they are learning more about the monthly lesson through video, craft, songs, games and discussion time. Each lesson focuses on one clear and simple bottom line so every kid can walk away and remember what matters most. This age group even works on a simple memory verse each month. SJC Kids is thrilled to have the privilege of teaching some of our youngest kids about God’s love for them through basic Bible truths! This age group will participate in Christmas Musical rehearsals for part of their night beginning in October.
Elementary (1st - 3rd grades) Trackers of Truth is a program designed to develop the basics of Christianity in our children, instilling in them a knowledge of where truth is found, examples of Biblical “Trackers of Truth,” and a desire to seek truth for themselves. The children will go through the Old Testament in chronological order, learning many highlights of the Old Testament stories. At the same time, they will learn of the many glimpses of the coming Savior, as revealed in the New Testament. They will soon understand that in the Old Testament, Jesus was present but concealed, whereas in the New Testament, Jesus was revealed. Each week, the children will also learn practical lessons of personal application to assist them in their own spiritual growth. This group will split their time between Trackers of Truth and Christmas Musical rehearsal in October and then take a break from Trackers of Truth during November and December to focus solely on Christmas Musical and Advent.
Upper Elementary (4th-5th grades) Bible Biz is an exciting, super-fun, fast-paced time of Bible study and quizzing competition. Each “Bizzer” gets a manual with daily devotions that include verse-by-verse commentary. Through the course of this school year, we will get through a large part of the Book of Matthew.” and at the end “It is preferred that every Bizzer has a book but not required. The cost of the book is $10 (scholarships available). The idea is to give our older elementary kids the chance to do more challenging devotions and, at the same time, teach them the value of getting into the habit of reading and studying the Bible on a regular, hopefully daily, basis! Bible Biz is visitor-friendly and also understanding of Bizzers who had a busy week and didn’t get through the whole devotion. There is plenty of review and nobody goes home empty handed. However, those who come super prepared are also rewarded. We hope your 4th and 5th graders will come and bring their friends! It will be awesome! This group will split their time between Bible Biz and Christmas Musical rehearsal in October and then take a break from Bible Biz during November and December to focus solely on Christmas Musical and Advent.

What does it mean to be a man…or a woman today? Society tries to change the meanings daily. How do I, as a parent raise my child to be a mature, godly, young man or woman? What does the Bible really say? But…what about what society says? And science findings…? It is all so complicated. The Bible provides answers, and social, and physical sciences support those Bible truths. Join us to investigate and recover Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
