beloved children of the father
children of the father

From the moment of our creation,
God the Father has filled us with His unconditional Love.

Our Heavenly Father sacrificed His only Son
so that you could spend eternity with Him.

There is peace in the arms of God the Father,
whose love knows no limits.

Beloved Children of the Father

Welcome, Beloved Children!

As Beloved Children of the Father, we are a part of God’s love story. He has shared His life with us and desires for us to experience His never-ending love. Perhaps being a Beloved Child is a new concept or view for many of us. Yet, God the Father desires for us to know that we are indeed deeply loved.

This year’s theme, inspired by the deep and personal love of our Father, reminds us that no matter our age—we are sons of Hope and daughters of Faith. We are beloved by Him, and asked simply to Be with Him.

May we come together this year to recognize ourselves as individuals who are truly beloved children of an infinitely loving God!

“We love because He first loved us.” – 1 John 4:19

Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in Love in a quite absolute, final way…
Fall in Love, stay in Love, and it will decide everything.”
