Bible Memory:

Psalm 138:1-4

“I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing praises to You before the gods. I will bow down toward Your holy temple and give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word according to all Your name. When I call, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength. All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord, for they have heard the words of your mouth

There has been some confusion about Bible Memory, I’m sorry about that, so let me try and clarify. I will test at the end of our passage to see how well each student has memorized the memory verse. Between now and the end, on each Friday, I will check in with a few students, but not all, to see how well they are doing and to help keep them on track. I hope this provides some clarity.

Reminders and Other Information:

  • Thank you to all who donated money for our Terry Fox run! It is much appreciated.
