The Lord’s Day (March 20)

There are two children’s classes which use Great Commission Publications curriculum.
In Acts 5, Luke showed the early church’s challenges to the outside. As chapter 6 begins, he’ll show the challenges within.

Returning to the Sermon on the Mount, we come to our last antithesis. The text is Matthew 5:43-48, entitled, “True Love.”
