Weekly Bible Lessons for Children-July 19th

Enjoy a new lesson each week to help you teach God's word to your children.

Happy Summer!!! Although school is out, we are always learning something new.

Here is the third lesson for the month of July. Below you will find a recap of the lesson, and this week's memory verse. You will find the full lesson within the attached documents.

Memory Verse: "What's this wisdom that has been given him?" Mark 6:2 NIV"

Lesson: " He began to teach in the synagogue and many who heard him were amazed. 'Where did this man get these things?' they asked. 'What's this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't this Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us? Are they took offense at him?" (from Mark 6:2-3 NIV)

How you can share the good news! Have you told someone about Jesus today? What did you share with friends and family? Continue to share the good news about Jesus. Most people are home during this pandemic and this is a good time to reach out to as many family and friends.

Have a blessed week.

Ray of Hope Community

Thank you for your continued support during these past few months, but most of all thank you for staying connected to God and God's people.

We are all anticipating the day when we can once again worship and fellowship together again in person. Surely, that day will come again. However, while we desire to be together in person, we must continue to stay safe. Therefore, the Ray of Hope Baptist Church will not begin any re-opening plans until after Labor Day, at the earliest. At that time, we will begin Phase-1 of our gradual re-entry plan. Even then, our re-entry plan is dependent upon current state and local regulations, as well as doing what is best for all of our members.

If you wish to be a part of the ROH Re-Entry Committee or have resources and information you would like to share. Please complete this form ROH Re-Entry Committee & Suggestion Form (just click the link), and a member of the church staff will contact you.

We ask that you continue to join us each Sunday on our virtual platform.


Time: 8:45 AM- Conference line is open for fellowship. Service begins at 9AM
