Bible Journaling Class

Bible journaling is an exciting way to engage with Scripture. It can transform the way you spend time in the Word and it all begins within the margins of the Bible.

Join us for a Bible Journaling class with Susan Wimmer on February 17th beginning at 10:30 AM. There is a cost of $5.00 per person and the class is limited to 12 participants. All supplies will be provided – you just need to bring your Bible. Call 812 865-3270 to reserve your spot today!

1,000 Books Before Kindegarten

Sign up in the Children’s Department and receive your packet to get started today!

Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).

The key is perseverance. Make it exciting. When your child reaches a milestone, give him/her a small reward (stickers, backpacks, books).
