iCal Import
Start:
May 18, 2017
Cost:
0.00
Venue:
Arkport Central School
Address:
Arkport, NY, United States

Where: Arkport Central School
When: 18 May, 25 May, 1 June, 8 June and 15 June    From right after school until 3:50 PM
Who:    All students from 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades are welcome     Teaching staff from Arkport Presbyterian Church
What:   The five week program will help the children memorize the Lord’s Prayer (the Our Father).  We shall use the Lord’s Prayer each week to teach about God as a loving Father (parent), God’s holiness, God as a provider, the importance of forgiveness and our need of it, and the importance of being good and resisting temptation.
How:  A typical day in the program will start with a gathering event, an ecumenical Christian prayer, singing, a skit, a lesson, knowledge drills, and a snack.  That’s a lot of activity in just 40 minutes, so everything moves along quickly.
Why:  The many Sunday morning sports programs often prevent children from participating in church and receiving Christian religion education.  This program is intended to aid families that wish to have their children receive the benefit of a program in which multiple children from throughout the community are learning biblical truths in a fun setting.
Cost:  Free
