Fall Bible Adventure Weekend

Jesus brought light to our dark world, and He calls us to live in the light. Children need to know the true light to help them walk the paths of life. Moreover, they are called to share this light with others.

“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12

Spring Bible Adventure Weekend

We all face problems in life that seem too big for us to handle. Children need to know that God is with them and will help them through the giant issues in their lives. Just like God helped David defeat the giant Goliath, God wants us to trust Him to help us take down our own giants. 

“The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine”

1 Samuel 17:37a
