Preschoolers-Kindergarten in the preschool room

The Opening is a time for all of the Preschool-Fifth grade students to meet together to sing and practice leading responsive readings.  We hear a synopsis of the story for the day and learn a theological word for the week.  The theological words are to help teach our children the language of the church.  

Preschool through Fifth grade use the Deep Blue Curriculum.
