Kindergarten

February 10th-14th

This week, we wrapped up our discussion on Baptism. They all did a wonderful job sharing their mementos and talking about who attended their special celebration. The children were able to find similarities between their own Baptism and those of their peers as well as make connections to Jesus’ Baptism. It was very insightful and the children really enjoyed listening to each others’ Baptism stories!
