Power and Love: 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. We want to help to equip parents and spiritual parents with Scripture, talking points, and experiential activities to continue to disciple their kids well every day of the week.

  3. SIGN there are great ways to add actions to “Jesus Loves Me,” but learning the song in ASL is even greater! YouTube has many great tutorials for how to learn “Jesus Loves Me!” in ASL.
