Children's Bible Club
Jesus commanded us to be a SHINING LIGHT to this world. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 5:16)
GLOW is a ministry under the Children Department of Heritage Baptist Church. Our desire is to help children grasp this truth and light up the world they are living in with the truth of the gospel. We want to partner with parents by instilling godly character traits in your children so that they can grow to be an exceptional generation that glorifies God.
