CHILDREN AND FAMILY CORNER

Minecraft Bible Study will hear and experience the story of Jesus feeding a crowd of 5,000 people with only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish (John 6:1-21). This miracle was accomplished because a young child was willing to share his food. Sharing can be hard for children. I wonder what would’ve happened if the child hadn’t been willing to share his food?

Children’s Church continues to need volunteer leadership for the entire month of August. If you can help, please contact Jimmy Wright formation@felcaustin.org
