“We will not hide these truths from our children;
we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord,

so that they set their hope in God and not forget the works of God,
but keep his commandments.”
Psalm78:4, 7

Feeling Overwhelmed?

Here is some Encouragement.

Time with God

Spending time with God, through Bible reading and prayer, is essential to growing in your relationship with Him. God desires for us to know him more and that happens when we meet him daily. 

The Lord's Supper

The Lord’s Supper can be an amazing time of worship and reflection for your child. The key is to talk with them before the time comes so that they can watch or participate with an understanding of what’s taking place.
