BIBLE BEES

Helping our young ones to learn about God through fun activities and stories from His Word.

This week we hear about Peter's restoration as Jesus' friend after the traumatic time he experienced after denying he was a follower when Jesus was deserted by all his disciples. What reassurance this gives us when we sometimes let Jesus down.
