Scripture Memory
Internalizing Scripture to connect to life’s needs and problems is essential for a growing, obedient Christian.
The systematic memorization of Scripture will help a believer to sin less, witness more and encourage others.
The verses that the children are asked to memorize come right out of the lessons. This will help reinforce what they are taught in the lesson. Each verse also has a question that goes with it to help tie the verse to everyday living.
All verses are on a verse card in their student book along with the books of the Bible they are to memorize.
  • Grades 1 and 2 (Challenger) memorize 12 verses each year.
  • Grades 3 and 4 (Conquerors) memorize 18 verses each year.
  • Grades 5 and 6 (Champions) memorize 24 verses each year.
The purpose is not quantity, but quality. Children are not only to learn the verse but also to remember it and how it applies to their lives.
  • Sin less.
  • Witness more.
  • Encourage others
