In growing God's kingdom, we need to reach out to His kids. Think for a moment about the influence from television, music, and the Internet. The secular world has our children as an audience 7-days a week. By sharing God's Word, we give His kids the armor to stand up boldly in this world with the knowledge they are loved by God and teach them what God expects of them. Together, as a team, we can build His Kingdom and reach His kids! For more information on children's ministry, call Karen Ahn, 770-448-4142, X116.
