Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it -” Proverbs 22:6

Discipline your son, and he will give you peace; he will bring delight to your soul -” Proverbs 29:17

You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise -” Deuteronomy 11:19

Mary Had a Little Lamb

Mary had a little Lamb,
His fleece was white as snow
And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.
He followed her to school each day,
T wasn’t even in the rule.
He made the children laugh and play.
To have a Lamb at school
And then the rules as changed one day,
Illegal it became;
To bring the Lamb of God to school.
Or even speak his Name.
Everyday got worse and worse,
And days turned into years,
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gun shots and tears,
What must we do stop the crime
That’s in our school today?
Let’s let the Lamb comes back to school,

And teach our kids to pray!
========================================================================

Congratulations!  All Sunday School Area level Competitions winners from  the   North East American region.
