Knowing God Better – His Sovereignty

Where do you turn when things go wrong? The way you answer that question reveals a lot about you. It also reveals a lot about your God.

This fall, we’re taking our 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders through a series called Knowing God Better. Throughout this series, we’re looking at what the Bible has to say about the character of God.

The goal is to understand God in a way that motivates us to become more like Him.

Thanksgiving for Faith and Love

This is the first in a series of devotionals from the book of Colossians.  As you read these posts we hope that you will read Colossians multiple times; after all, nothing substitutes for actually reading the Bible.  Since, the posts will not be able to talk about everything in the passage, we trust that you… Read More»
