Bible Time

It is important to us that ECP students experience God and the grace of Jesus.  Each week the children in the Early Childhood Program get to participate in Bible Time.


Bible Time engages the children in God’s Word through music, movement, prayer, puppets, drama, and listening to a story from Scripture.

Scroll below to see the Bible Stories and memory verses we are sharing with our students during Bible Time for the 2023-2024 school year!

Memory Verse:

"God...knows everything."

1 John 3:20

Bible Story Description:

God knows everything. God knows how we feel. God knows how it's going to work out. Go knows what will happen if we go this way...or that way. Add to it that God loves us and we truly can trust that God knows what's best for us.

Memory Verse:

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid . . . for the Lord your God goes with you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

Bible Story Description:

There's a form of bravery that people can muster to get through dentist appointments or go sky diving.

But then there's God-brave, a bravery that can only come from knowing the one, true God.

God-brave helps us go beyond what we can do and experience God working through us to do what only God can do.

Bible Story Description:

While Jesus was on earth, huge crowds flocked to hear Him teach. Why? Yes, there was a chance of seeing a miracle, but it was also because they believed Jesus taught important things. And they were right! Jesus taught important things then, and He still teaches us important things now.

each other"

(Ephesians 4:32)

Bible Story Description:

The love Jesus gives the world is hard for us to comprehend because it's bigger and more gracious than the love the world offers. The love of Jesus is for everyone. Nothing can make Jesus stop loving us-nothing. It's a God-sized love that has to be received before it's understood. It's that good!
