Children's Ministry

His Kids - Children's Ministry
What Elementary Kids Are Learning This Week

This week in Big House, elementary kids in both hours are learning about faith and trust. In Matthew 14, we see the story of Jesus walking on water. Jesus proved that He can be trusted through His miracles and teachings. His death and resurrection show us that He is who He says He is. Even in the midst of fear and doubt, we can hold out our empty hands, like Peter, and cry, “Lord, save me!” He will answer, and we can respond in worship of our Lord and Savior.
