Salt Squad

Salt Squad has started up again at the Allegheny Bible Church on Wednesdays at 7 p.m.

This is for all children in the community in grades kindergarten through grade six.

Children participate in Bible verse memorization, Bible lessons, singing, crafts related to the scripture lesion, and of course, snacks.

Points are earned each week to be used as “currency” toward prizes when “Salt Squad Store Night” is held and the accumulated points are tallied at the end of the year to determine awards and trophies earned.

The ministry of the Salt Squad program is to encourage the understanding and memorization of the scriptures, and especially to ensure the children’s understanding of Jesus Christ’s salvation message of the Gospel and how the Bible, from Old and New Testament, proclaims it.

The program was developed by Pastor Dale Timco during his years in youth ministry in the Pittsburgh area.

For more information , contact Pastor Timco at 730-3475.
