July Series: CHARACTERS

God's story has characters we can see, and characters that we cannot see. It has our great loving, powerful God, and it has an adversary. It has angels and fallen angels. It has things going on that we can see, and that we cannot see. But it is all in the hands of a God that is love. In this series, kids will learn about each of these characters through the lens of a loving God.


Anyone I am absolutely sure that not even death or life can separate us from God’s love.

Not even angels or demons, the present or the future, or any powers can separate us.

Romans 8:38
