No matter what denomination you attend you are going to come up against resistance at one time or another from within. Let’s face it, you get enough pushback in the world without needing any more to come at you from your own family.

Bible Study for Kids – Superheroes

This is a great bible study for kids of all ages. I’ve used it for young kids who love Iron Man and

Today kids have to deal with a lot and peer pressure is no different than it was for you, way back when.
