Scripture Memory

God wants His children to know what is in His Word so that we can learn, grow strong, and live the life He created us to live. We emphasize the importance of learning scripture in all of our children’s ministry age groups.

APRIL 2020 UPDATE: Despite being at home, we are still keeping track! You have til April 23 (what would have been our end of year concert) to email or text Ms. Stephanie videos with your kids reciting their March/April Scripture verses. You can choose a prize when we get back in the Fall and if you’re on track for a medal, you’ll receive it then as well.  Her email is stephanie.s@anastasiachurch.org or cell is 904-540-1128.
