Going The Distance: Growing Faith In Kids That Lasts A Lifetime
Faith is a gift given by God. It is his work from beginning to end.
Yet God calls on us to be careful not to cause little ones to stumble. We can impact a child’s faith for good or ill.
In a world that tries to pulls us away from God, what are the key things we can do which will help establish in children a faith that is deep and strong – a faith that will weather the storms - a faith that lasts a lifetime?
The 2018 SMBC Children's Ministry Conference explored ways of helping grow our kids’ faith - as we long to see them Going the Distance.
