Bible Study Program
Religion has a long and important history in Armenia. Christianity in Armenia can be traced back to the age of the Apostles - Thaddeus and Bartholomew were the first evangelizers of Armenia and, according to tradition, were martyred there. It was at the beginning of the fourth century, in 301, that Christianity was first proclaimed as the official religion of Armenia. This proclamation was the result of the missionary activity of St. Gregory the Illuminator. The Bible Study Program was launched in September 2015 to provide an introduction to stories of the Bible in a child centered format. The Program is overseen by SOAR-Idaho and SOAR-Gyumri in cooperation with Shengavit Kindergarten, Warm Hearth, and Gyumri Social Childcare Center.
