• God saw that it was good.
• God is love.
• Give thanks.
Special take-home cards that correspond to each week’s lesson help parents nurture their child’s faith at home. Participating in Puggles will give your child a head start on the path to loving and following God for life.

Cubbies – 4 to 5 years old>

Preschoolers can hardly wait for their Cubbies club meetings. Whether it’s the fun puppets, the exciting games or their “Cubbies friends,” they simply love it. At story time each week, preschoolers learn about God – the greatness of His love and His Word – and about His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce story time lesson themes.

Truth & Training – Grades 3rd thru 6th

In Truth & Training or T&T, large group lessons, handbooks and small group time deepen a child’s knowledge about God and His Word and explain how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life.
Friendships grow as children and leaders enjoy game time together and also encourage one another in their faith and prayer life during small group time.
The newly updated T&T is designed to help kids stay plugged in as they move into the preteen years and continue growing in their relationship with Christ.
