In KREW (1st grade - 5th grade), our goal is to assist parents in teaching children about the Bible and who Jesus is. We use the curriculum from 252 Basics to help us reach our goal. When you see the word "basics" in the title, you think foundational or essential, right? That's what 252 Basics does, it equips kids from 1st through 6th grade with basic truths. In fact, when a kid transitions into middle school (7th and 8th grade), we want them to have experienced 3 basic truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52 (hence the curriculum name):
1. I need to make the wise choice.
2. I can trust God no matter what.
3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
These truths are reinforced each week during our Sunday morning and Wednesday night services.
