Kindergarten Goals


Spiritual Goals:

Bible stories presented throughout the year will give a basic overview of creation:  Noah, Moses, David, John the Baptist, Christ’s birth, Jesus’ miracles, death and resurrection, the disciples and Paul. These stories help children learn the Bible is the true Word of God and give them an understanding of who God is, who Jesus is and that He loves them and wants to be part of their life (and salvation).
