In 2022, we will did The Tree of Life: God’s Promise of Salvation.  It is all about answering the question of how this world God created came to be in such a confused state and how God stepped forward with a plan and a promise to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to fix it all.  


Each day we explored Bible accounts that guide us through this epic story of salvation from creation, to the cross, to Christ’s return on the Last Day. We will meet new friends, do fun activities and sing great songs!
