And then the kids will be challenged to do something about it! No registration is required.

    North Castle is hidden in a frozen land and the King's valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King's Armor. But the armor isn't what they think it is. Knights of North Castle invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God's power! Kids will explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor - the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation - at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters. They will explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God. Our Quest for the King's Armor is based on Ephesians 6:10-20.
