At the heart of Mission del Sol's Christian Education programs are learning and growing through Bible-centered lessons, mission activities and Christian fellowship for our children, youth, and adults. Our Bible-centered approach encourages children of all ages, to grow with each lesson and take home their faith journey to share with their families and the world around them. We provide multiple opportunities throughout the year for children to grow along their faith journey.  Our adults have several bible study opportunities to choose from using books by contemporary Christian authors as well as current events to discuss challenging issues increasing their understanding of how the Bible speaks to us in today's world.

    • Relate – Kids discuss what surprises them, what makes them wonder, and how they feel about the story.
    • Connect – Kids connect the story by finding it in their own Bibles.
    • Create – Kids imagine and reflect on the Bible story through hands-on activities or games using their learner leaflet.
