Bible How To for Catechists – Babylon @ Our Lady of Grace, Babylon
Mar 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Bible How To for Catechists - Babylon @ Our Lady of Grace, Babylon | West Babylon | New York | United States

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

God’s Word has answers – Let’s see how we can find them!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

God reveals Himself to us through Scripture so it’s important that as catechists and parents, we are comfortable with the Bible in order to help the children envision the wonder and awe of God in His Word. In this Bible How To workshop, Catechists and parents will learn more than simply how to find something in the Bible. We will explore the best ways to use the Bible with the children in class and at home, and how to use the Bible as a means to enter into conversation with God. You will come to see how God’s plan of salvation is woven through the many books of the Bible and what that means for your life and the lives of our children.
