What’s unique about The SilverSword Bible Memory Program?
- A Family Program. This Scripture memorization program is designed to be used in the home but it could also be run as part of a church’s children’s ministry. Either way, the program is family-driven, and serves children age 2 through grade 6. While the program is designed for children, its impact is increased when parents and even older siblings participate.
- Parental Involvement. Even when the program is church-based, it is most effective when the whole family participates. Children will learn their verses better and faster when they receive encouragement and practice at home. The family may work on these verses together. Older brothers and sisters can help younger ones.
- Peer Support. When the program is conducted in the church, all the children in each grade are working on the same verses. This means that whenever and wherever the kids are together they can quiz each other on the verses they are memorizing. Sunday School teachers may choose to have children memorize Silver Sword verses in their classes.
- Translation. The widely accepted and child-friendly New Living Translation is used in this program.
