Visit uncharted territory where you will begin to understand that obedience to God can lead you beyond the expected. So, toss the map, stick close to your guide, and prepare to listen for God’s direction in this journey that is unknown to us, but known by Him.  Based on Isaiah 30:21, the whole family can enjoy this Journey Off the Map!  We offer classes for preschool through middle school students, along with an adult class.  We are encouraging our high school students to serve as volunteers.

Prayer Corner

This week pray for  . . . the hearts of children

Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them.  But the disciples rebuked them.  Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.  Matthew 19:13-15  (NIV)

Jesus wanted little children to come because he loves them and they have the kind of attitude needed to approach God.  The receptiveness of little children was a great contrast to the stubbornness of the religious leaders who let their education and sophistication stand in the way of the simple faith needed to believe in Jesus.
