From Pastor Toensing

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: Children and families are precious to our Lord. He seeks all to be saved through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself, says, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them. Mark 10:14–16 (ESV)

God created families and He loves the little children. God sent His Son Jesus to die for all people, and those who do believe in Christ as Savior and Lord, He calls His children. Jesus invites ALL of us to His loving arms. (Continued...)
