Children's Sunday

The children of our church assisted in worship on Children's Day, June 22, 2014, and wrote all of the prayers for morning worship. Here they are during the Children's Message with Pastor Ruth and Bible Guy, discovering timeless truths tucked inside "General Bloomfield's Illuminating, Edifying and Inspiring Bible for Young Minds."
