Loaves and Fish Scripture Memory Program

We want to encourage our children to memorize Scripture. In addition, we want to provide them with a way to engage in missions here at home and across the globe. With both of those goals in mind, we invite your 3-year-olds-5th graders to join us in memorizing 24 verses over the course of the year to, in turn, donate resources to various organizations.
How it works: 
  • Verses memorized earn $1, depicted by 1 paper fish
  • Items in the Loaves and Fish store cost 5 or 10 fish
  • Items will support a different outreach each quarter
When students have earned 5 or 10 fish, they can bring them to the director on duty at the check-in desk to choose their donation. They will receive a card that shares which outreach they supported, and what their support provides for said outreach. While we provide 2 verses for memorization each month, verses may be said to a teacher or director on duty for credit at any time.
