  • What stories Moses had to tell!

    Moses witnessed events few people would ever see. God instructed Moses to tell his descendants about the miraculous experiences with Pharoah. (Exodus 10:2).

    As God was speaking to the Israelites he commanded that his laws for living be passed on from parents to children. Religious education is important. It helps each generation obey God and set their hope upon him. God commanded the fathers to make known to their children the praises of the Lord and his strength and the wonderful works he has done.

  • John Newton (1725-1807) wrote the words to the hymn “Amazing Grace.” God’s grace reached down and touched Newton, a slave trader, and saved his soul. Read the words of the hymn to see how the Lord saved Newton.

    Through the years many others have been pulled from a sinful life and had their feet placed on the solid rock. God’s amazing grace comes through Jesus Christ (John 1:17) and opens the door to God. When you have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ things happen which results in eternal changes.
