The Children’s Word: How Long Will I Be With You?

The Children’s Word: How Long Will I Be With You?


Welcome to The Children’s Word, a weekly ministry of the Orthodox Christian Network brought to you by Presvytera Alexandra Houck!

This week, Presvytera Alexandra tells about a time when the disciples kept asking Jesus for help. Do you ask for help? Maybe more than once? Find out why you can ask Jesus for help as many times as you want to. You can also learn why we aren’t sad when we celebrate the Dormition of Mary. And, there’s a coloring page, a maze to find your way through, and an icon activity to enjoy.
