Weekly Memory Verse
Please participate in our project to memorize
52 scripture verses in 52 weeks.
Children will learn the bold text, and the rest
of the congregation will learn the whole text.
Today’s memory verse:
Proverbs 3:5-7
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
The verse to memorize by Sunday, March 15:
Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Him
who gives me strength.
