As we look upon education today we notice quite a different emphasis form that of even twenty-five years ago, when the accumulation of much knowledge and many skills was the chief objective. There is a noticeable decrease in emphasis on the accumulation of facts for facts sake, and the curriculum has been enlivened by the utilization of real-life situations.

In spite of these various efforts we realize that we are still devoting far too little time to the Christian education of boys and girls. It is, therefore, the purpose of this thesis to present a week-day extended program to supplement the present Sunday School and Vacation Bible School curriculum for juniors in the Mission Covenant Church, and to challenge workers to use modern and improved methods of teaching.
