We will start off with Prayer by one of the students. I will present a Virtue and Scripture for that week (find them here) and  after that we will Proof. Remember while students are proofing the remaining students will need to write the memory verse, studying for their turn of proofing or start coping this weeks memory work. There should be no talking during this time because it is distracting to the kids outside in the hall proofing. {*I hope this brings a little more order to our class and make us aware of why we are here… to know God and make Him known.}
