Teaching Babies, 1s, and 2s: It’s more than Babysitting (Preschool)

believers and tips on how to share the gospel with them.

When children participate in Bible study, the Bible should take a prominent role in the teaching-learning environment. Let’s consider ways to create a Bible-rich experience in each Bible-study session for elementary kids.
Growing in God’s Word (Preschool & Children)
