The Children’s Word: The Living Water

The Children’s Word: The Living Water


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 us a story about water. Have you ever been so thirsty that all you could think about was getting a drink of water? This is a story about two people talking to each other about getting a drink of water. It’s special water – not like the kind you get at the water fountain. Read the story to find out why! You can also read a story about a real pirate who became a saint! There’s a coloring page, a maze, and some new words to learn, too!
