A Catechism for Children – PPT

A Musical Catechism PowerPoint It’s big so it might take a moment to download! A few summers ago I crafted a Musical Catechism for Children.  I’ve had no reaction nor response.  But there is an urgent need for children to learn a ‘reformed’ catechism in order for them to comprehend the general outline of covenant […]
