Happy Father's Day!


Parent’s Corner- July 16, 2019


“As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.”  Psalm 103:13 ESV


Happy Father’s Day! 

What a great day to be studying the Sunday school passages selected for today! 


Jesus loves us- always! 

God hates and punishes sin, but he loved us enough to send us Jesus to receive the punishment for our sin.

Salvation is received through faith. . . and God has made himself accessible to us!


God is a good, good Father, and he loves us very much!  As we celebrate our earthly fathers today, let us remember to give praise to our Heavenly Father for His gracious care for us!
