SUNDAY SCHOOL

“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul and spirit, joints and marrow, as it judges the thoughts and purposes of the heart.”  Hebrews 4:12

God has given us minds to use for His service.  Therefore, we are lifelong learners who study our faith in order to love God with our mind, as well as our heart and soul.
