Interactive children’s Bible lesson at First Baptist
During the past few months we’ve been busy doing ministry! We hope to post more soon about what’s new.

Children here constructed a spider’s web out of masking tape and then tried to escape. The lesson? We were talking about failures in King David’s life, and what happens when someone doesn’t tell the truth.
