*****  Star Scripture Memory Program  *****

We encourage you to draw close to our Mighty God through His word, the Bible, and store up scripture in your heart!  Memorizing scripture helps us learn about God’s love for us and our need for His saving grace.  With some help from your parents and teachers, you can learn more and more of God’s precious words, promises, and commandments.

Each time you memorize a passage, you will be excused from class to recite it to the Sunday School Superintendent in the church basement office.  Your name will be recorded on the Star Memory board, and once you’ve completed a level, you will be awarded a Star Memory Certificate to congratulate you on your achievement!
