—Christine Tutak, director of children’s ministry, Sherman Oaks Presbyterian Church, Sherman Oaks, CA
“After years of using a rotation-type curriculum, our church switched to We Believe. As a teacher of our third-grade sacraments class, I was thrilled to see a stronger knowledge of the Bible in this year’s class. We attribute this positive change to the We Believe curriculum and weekly lesson style. The class is excited to share their knowledge of Bible stories!”
