Bible Heroes


1) Christ, our Passover Lamb

In Jesus' death on the cross, he fulfilled the true meaning of the Jewish sacrifice of the Passover lamb. Just as the angel of death passed over the Israelite families that marked their doorposts with the lamb's blood, so too, God's judgment will pass over those who are covered by the blood of the LAMB of God. 

Jesus was crucified on Passover Day, a celebration that began the evening before when the Passover meal was eaten, known also as the Last Supper. 

Learn more about the Passover Feast and how it relates to Jesus, the Lamb of God.

Passover begins this year at sundown on Friday, April 22, 2016.

3) Survivor-Temptation Island Women's Retreat

Several weeks ago I received a phone call from a lovely woman, Pat McEachin, who wanted to know more about our Survivor-Temptation Island Event. She was very excited about the program and wanted me to know that it was exactly what she had been looking to find. As we discussed the program, I was pleasantly surprised to discover she intended to use it at an adult women's retreat! I made her promise that if she used it she had to send pictures and a write up of the event. I'm happy to report that she sent the pictures and write up. 

Read how these awesome ladies used our
Survivor-Temptation Island Event
for their weekend retreat! 

Now that's just awesome!

Thank you, Pat, for sharing your story with us! 

I love hearing how the resources at are being used in ministry. I hope Pat's story encourages and inspires you, as much as it did me! 

Your webservant,

Fruit of the Spirit Bible Lessons for kids



4) Bible Day Camp

"I am just excited to report that I ordered the Fruit of the Spirit Bible Lessons and used it during our first ever Bible Day Camp. It was indeed spirit-filled and the teachers and children enjoyed every moment, every lesson, every activity, especially the yummy devotions. If I had ten thumbs, it would get all ten thumbs up. I am looking forward to purchasing and receiving more lessons from your network. Thank you and God bless you all." ~ Jacqueline
