PrimeTime® After-School Program
About the PrimeTime® Program
PrimeTime® offers churches and other organizations an effective tool for sharing God’s love and His Word with children in grades 1 - 5 who might otherwise be alone and unsupervised during after school hours. It’s a perfect outreach program that many churches include as a part of a homework club or sports activity.
Filled with fun activities and engaging Bible lessons, the three year curriculum includes The Big Story, Following Jesus and Heroes of the Faith. PrimeTime features 40-week programs that parallel the school year; if you would like to host a program for more than once a week, there are plenty of supplemental suggestions for extending your activities for as many days as you might like.
Use PrimeTime to introduce children to a lifetime of walking with Jesus and encountering God in the Bible and in prayer!
Responding to PrimeTime graduates asking for more, Scripture Union is excited to offer PrimeTimePlus for youth aged 12 – 14. Along with all of the benefits of PrimeTime, this new program offers new opportunities for young people to develop a relationship with God through His Son Jesus. They are introduced to what it means to follow Jesus; to understand the importance of prayer, to develop a habit of Bible reading, and to become a part of a faith community that encourages and serves others.
