BEGINder Class: A class for 4 year olds-kindergarteners. Children walk chronologically through the Bible, seeing the story as one BIG PICTURE that points to Jesus! Children will hear a story, watch a short video and engage in crafts and activities.
Character Formation Project Workshops: Children will participate in 3-week units, learning about a specific Bible story in three different ways (workshops). Workshops include: Art, Cooking, Science, Game, etc. Each unit will focus on 1 of 7 virtues ( Respect, Justice, Responsibility, Integrity, Diligence, Self-Sacrifice, and Courage). Children will be challenged to recognize these virtues in their own lives, as a result of a correct understanding of their identity as a child of God, and their purpose of making God known in the world. Each week, children address challenging worldview questions to help them transfer the truths of God and the Bible to their lives and the world around them. Children are divided into groups according to their grade in school: Sprouts: 1st grade, Trailblazers: 2nd-3rd grade, Explorers: 4th-5th grade.

We have created some upcoming 4th and 5th Grade special events, check the calendar to stay up to date! Events are posted as well on: http://www.thevailchurch.com/web-calendar/
We exist in order to: “Develop biblically literate children who embrace Jesus as Savior and Lord, accept the Bible as truth and a guide for life, seek to obey biblical principles, actively pursue a vibrant relationship with God and live transformed lives with a passion for the lost.”
We seek to accomplish this by: “Using a connected and purposeful biblically-based curriculum, utilizing teachers and volunteers within their giftings, developing meaningful relationships with the children, and emphasizing connections to life and culture.”
