What’s new

Interactive learning in First Baptist Shelton's children's ministry

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. Photo: Interactive children’s Bible lesson, part of a curriculum from Group Publishing that we now use on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am. 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.
