Religion Standards and Benchmarks K-8
God's Plan of Salvation History
It is very important that before we dive into the curriculum and the catechetical standards that the year be introduced by the Story -- the adventurous story of God's unfailing love for us, His persistence in drawing us back to himself, and the characters along the way who succeed and fail in their quest for holiness. The context of the Story of Salvation History provides the proper foundation for the rest of catechetical instruction. It is vitally important that the story be reviewed and retold so we each know our purpose and our place in the bigger plan of God.
