Love Jesus & Love Kids? We Need You!

If you qualify, please come and be part of the Children’s Ministry Team! We are looking for people who sing, play an instrument, rock babies, pray, play games, cut out crafts, decorate for VBS, shepherd kids, and laugh, to name a few of the many things you could do! We will use your wonderful gifts in a delightful way to minister the Love of Jesus to everyone who crosses the threshold. Come on down! We are waiting for you!  Rebecca Sweet rebeccas@fpcsat.org.

Room 108 | Mama Bear Apologetics Class for Parents

Description: “Mama Bear Apologetics: Guide to Sexuality” is a valuable resource aimed at empowering parents to educate and guide their children toward understanding and respecting God’s intended plan for gender, sex, marriage, and family. It highlights the importance of helping our children comprehend the clear and unwavering design that God has established for families. By delving into this book, we equip ourselves with the knowledge and insights needed to become the wise and dependable mentors our children require. Together, we can lead them towards embracing the life-affirming truths that God has in store for us.
