Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come,

thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.

Children's  Time

Although they are not often mentioned, the women of the Bible have much to share with us.

This Children's Time, which first aired during Women's History Month,

teaches us about one of the most important women in the Bible, and perhaps of all time.
