We now have two elementary lessons per week as our curriculum evolves. There is a Kindergarten lesson – which is a year-long walk through Genesis, and an older elementary lesson, which walks them through the history of the Israelites. We’ll tap into each throughout the year, but for today, we’re looking at the older elementary … Continue reading Here I Am!
