Creating Ambassadors for Christ
All children think critically and ask deep questions at every age. These questions are usually based on their age and life experience. Our approach to teaching the Bible is designed to give students a place to ask questions and process their thoughts through a biblical worldview.
In early education, kindergarten, and T1, students discover what it means to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus by learning about specific Bible stories. Then, in first grade, students begin our curriculum, God’s Story, which has presents God's word in a chronological, transformational, and comprehensive way.
Our desire is to use our love for God’s Word and effective educational methodology to create an atmosphere of biblical truth, so our students leave MRCA as ambassadors for Christ!
