Children in the Worship Service

When our children were young, we made the decision to keep them in the worship service with us on Sundays. We wanted them to learn how to worship alongside us. We wanted them to hear the singing and learn to sing with us. We wanted them to be in the presence of the saints while we prayed, while we heard the Word preached, while we read the Word responsively, while […]

30 Days in Ephesians 6, Day 30: Review

We’ve read Paul’s entire letter to the Ephesian believers.
