Teach Your Children
There was a popular song some years ago called "Teach Your Children."  It wasn't about religious education, but unfortunately, for many children that's the teaching they're not getting.  If we hold the Bible as the most important book to our faith, we need to study it--and to teach it to our children.  This week, Dr. Spence shares a 'fake' Bible story to show just how people can become confused if they haven't been taught.

Your Next Step
Every day we wake up to the unknown. We may think we know what the day has in store, but life is what happens while we are making other plans. Jesus could foresee everything that was coming, but we are not like Him in that way.

Secrets, Strength & Self-Control
The story of Samson has probably captured the imagination of every child who was told the story in Church. I had always envisioned Samson as a big man with lots of muscles. The great feats of strength that he performed while judge over Israel would lead you to believe he was the biggest and bravest man alive.

Jesus Wants You Back
At Easter many Christians who have fallen away from the Lord wonder if they still have a place in His kingdom.
