Eternity: Our Story Continues…

Our Story Continues is our way to connect parents to what kids are talking about and experiencing in the Sunday morning teaching.

Take turns reading verse by verse and talk about what it means. Ask your child questions such as: Who is speaking? What do you think that means? What does it mean for us? What do you think his “Father’s house” is like?
