Bible Adventure Club
Join Mrs. McAnulty as we go on an adventure in God’s Word. Bible Adventures is going to be exciting as we dive in to God’s Word to learn how we can practically apply it to our daily lives and how we can walk out what we learn. We will NOT be bored as we will have lots to do, such as learning songs, movement, activities, discussion about real life application to bring The Word to life. I can’t wait for your child to join me as we go on adventures in God’s word.
