We ended the day with a special prayer for those
Christians around the world who are facing persecution. We in
this country have the freedom to worship without fear. The
most difficult thing for us is to decide to spend time in His word
and in prayer, to teach it and live it, and to make worship a
priority. For many, their faith threatens their lives.
Yet at the same time, we also know that faith gives life. May
they who are persecuted -- and we who can show our faith -- allow
the Holy Spirit to give us strength. May we also be a source
of encouragement for each other.
Schedules, verses, and journals will be posted as
Materials in Google Classroom so students will always have the
ability to view them from there. The memory schedule for
September - October has been posted on Google Classroom. It
was also included via a link in the parent email.
