In the Fall of 2013, our Education Department sought to revamp the Sunday School Program in order to generate more interest, increase attendance and encourage our youth to bring their friends. With these goals in mind the "Milk2Meat" Sunday School Program initiative was born utilizing I Peter 2:2-3 as a foundation. Our instructors were encouraged to be creative and to think out of the proverbial box in using various teaching methods and techniques, ranging from traditional classroom instruction, to videos, to external activities related to the class. Instead of using ages and grade levels as Classroom monikers, we chose to give these levels various names that would reference the respective subject matter and the classroom objectives for each group. Our aim is to ensure that when a child completes his journey through our educational structure he will know the Lord, be sound in the faith and be able to share the gospel with the lost.
