Solid Rock Teen Sunday School Class

Our Goal: For the young people to know the Word of God (Bible) and not be BORED!
Main Instuctor: Rev. David W. Pfonner

Think back on an important lesson you have learned in life. Did you learn it from reading about it? from hearing about it? from something you experienced? Chances are, the most important lessons you have learned came from something you experienced.

That is what Solid Rock Teen Class is - Learning by doing. Active learning is a key element in the teen class Bible lessons.

Active learning leads our students in doing things that help them understand important principles, messages and ideas. It is a discovery process that helps kids internalize what they learn.

The Bible application in each lesson actively connects the topic with the Bible. It helps kids see how the Bible is relevant to the situations that they face.

Each lesson uses a variety of fun, active learning situations
Each lesson starts lively, meaningful discussions with thought provoking questions.
Each lesson makes the Word of God come alive for teenagers with relevant, easy to understand Bible studies.
