KIDS’ BIBLE CHALLENGE is still happening!
Have your child fill out the Bible Challenge slip and return it Sunday morning. The goal is that we have lifelong learners of the Word, that they will crave His Word every day. If they continue to fill the container with the challenge slips, we will have a celebration sometime in June or July.
