Parents, the Children’s Ministry is starting a 9-week series on the Fruit of the Spirit Fruit of the Spirit being love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. As the children explore what God’s word says about these characteristics we encourage you to strike up conversations about how to walk traits out in their lives. We are taking time to cover positive ways to treat others, so we ask that you would join us in challenging the kids to put these fruit into action.
