The Importance of Children to Christ and Christianity

There is a precious children’s hymn titled I Know That My Savior Loves Me. A remarkable performance of this beautiful song, featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, can be enjoyed in this video. The lyrics to it can be read at this link This is a perfect hymn to teach children; what a comfort it is for them in their youth – and throughout all of their lives – to know that they are greatly loved by Christ and that there are genuinely loving, caring adults who will help guide them on their way to knowing Christ and living in His truest of love!

This painting is from the Cathedral Church of St George in Jerusalem and is commonly called “Jesus Among the Children”. It is a marvelous illustration of the importance of children to Christ and Christianity. As parents, let us *teach our children the gentle, pure, 100% loving ways of Christ, and in so doing, truly make our world a better place for all ❤️✝️❤️ .

“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” The Words of Christ from Matthew 19:14 RSV

*If you are a parent who would like some help in raising your child in the Christian faith, please let us know. We are here to help you do this; it is our absolute pleasure and honor to do so.

Our Beautiful Mrs. Betty Christie has Passed Away

We are very saddened to share that our beloved, beautiful church family member, Mrs. Betty Christie, has passed away.

Betty brought, and added, so much to our church. She sang in the choir, served as an elder, Sunday School teacher, and secretary. She was a member of our Velma Hayes Women’s Group. She was always dressed so snazzy, had such a great smile, and was so warm and welcoming. She lit up our Sanctuary every time she came through the door. She was a light.

An obituary that captures what a true treasure Betty was, and includes a touching memorial video, can be read at this link
