Children’s Sunday

Our project takes great pride in our children as they learn to grow and lead like Jesus did.  We do this through hands on opportunities for the children to teach and minister to others.  This past year, our children partnered with our church partners to lead the Sunday worship service.  Below are pictures of our children and the church congregation.
