Walnut Hill Kids
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)
We desire to teach children that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life. In Jesus, we believe children can live life to the fullest by experiencing His presence, power and blessing as they walk with Him. As the primary educator of your child’s faith, we pray you will allow us to join you on the journey as your child grows deeper in Christ.
