Our desire is to present the children of HSB with the full Word of God. We want them to know love, and obey the One who loves them, walks beside them, has a plan for them and wants a relationship with them."
"But Jesus said, "Let the children come to Me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children." Matthew 19:14 NLT
