(Plan to set aside about 30 minutes weekly). 9am team arrives by 8:40am.
1st grade Team - Starting in 1st grade here at North Wake, our kids start attending church service with their family during one hour and attend Sunday School during the opposite hour. We also begin topical studies. Our first study is called Jesus What a Savior. Each lesson in Jesus, What a Savior! Is designed to present the material, including Bible stories, in a way that proclaims the centrality of the greatness and worth of God. This chronological study on redemption focuses on God’s revelation of His Son, Jesus, as the one and only hope for desperate sinners—the good news of the Gospel! We provide the visuals, snack, activity, and take homes for our teaching teams to allow our teachers to focus on preparing the truths that they will be sharing and praying for the kids and families they will be serving.

4th grade Team – Our 4th grade class is studying a historical mystery Jesus' death on the cross—and asks the questions: "What really happened here?" "Why did Jesus die?" and "Who did it?” To find the answers to these questions, the study goes to the beginning of the Bible narrative in Genesis and then moves chronologically through the Old Testament text as students search for clues that foreshadow the coming of Jesus and His redemptive work on the cross. Special emphasis is given to showing that the Bible is God's story from beginning to end and that Jesus is the key to understanding the story. North Wake provides the visuals, snack, activity, and take homes for our teaching teams to allow our teachers to focus on preparing the truths that they will be sharing and praying for the kids and families they will be serving. Expect to spend an hour each week in preparation. 9am team arrives by 8:40am.
5th grade team – Our 5th grade class is studying the names of God throughout the scriptures - The names of God in the Bible are a reflection of His character, which is so glorious that He cannot be described by a single name. His character is communicated in hundreds of names progressively revealed in the Bible. But the focus of How Majestic Is Your Name is not the many names, titles and references to God. These are merely the structure to show the greatness of our God. Each lesson presents glorious truths about God and encourages students to see and rejoice in His goodness and greatness. We provide the visuals, snack, activity, and take homes for our teaching teams to allow our teachers to focus on preparing the truths that they will be sharing and praying for the kids and families they will be serving. Expect to spend an hour each week in preparation. 9am team arrives by 8:40am.
