BIBLE S Today, we present our 4th graders with their own Bible, representing our commitment to the infallibility of scripture and the spiritual growth of the next generation. It is through the Bible that these covenant children will continue to piece together Godâ€™s drama of redemption that is weaved through the stories of both the Old and New Testaments. It is this drama of Christâ€™s redemptive work that will imprint on their hearts their need for Jesus and the free grace He gives. Addison Achey

Prayer of Confession
Loving Father, we know from Scripture that we are fearfully and wonderfully made; yet we confess that in this world, we pay more attention to our blemishes and shortcomings than we do to the reality that You have created and blessed us. Forgive our self-centered nature, and help us to trust in Your providence that created us for Your glory. Hear now our continued confessions we offer in silence…
Just as families keep in touch about joys and sorrows, our church family at Peachtree wants to do the same. During your prayers this week, we ask you to lift up these people to God.

All children, including those who have special developmental and/or health challenges, are welcome.
