What is Sparks?

Sparks

Sparks is a program for children from 7 year old through 2nd grade
(3 YearProgram). Clubbers build the foundation of wisdom and biblical values to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ through Bible characters and events. Also, clubbers strengthen their mind and physical strength by playing exciting games that help them release their energy and curiosity.

6 reasons why children must memorize Scripture

  • - The Bible commands us to do.
  • - It saves us from sin.
  • - It guards our hearts in distress.
  • - When we have questions about the Bible, it helps us know how to act upon.
  • - It helps us know God and His Word.
  • - It may become a witness to others.
