Proverbs 22:6

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

Wonderful Wednesday is offered for children ages K – 6th grade. The church van will pick up children from Morrilton Elementary School and Morrilton Intermediate School each Wednesday.  They will return to the church and participate in activities including snacks, music, games, devotion time and occasionally surprise station. Children in K-1st grade will need to be brought to the church and dropped off at 3:45pm. 

Kids with a Mission is a quarterly project for the children to actively become the Hands and Feet of Jesus through mission work.

Acolytes are children, 2nd Grade or older, who are trained to assist in worship each Sunday by lighting the alter candles, helping with Holy Communion and assisting in other religious ceremonies.  Training is offered twice a year or on an individual basis by appointment.

Bible Presentation is an annual event in October to recognize the spiritual journey taken as children grow in their faith.  Children entering the 3rd Grade are eligible to receive a Bible during this ceremony.

Family Night is offered occasionally throughout the year.  The events vary but encourage family interaction.  Check the calendar for more information.

Vacation Bible School is our biggest event of the year.  We go all out each summer to have a fun and faith-filled time of worship, games, crafts, drama, snacks and story time.  Many wonderful volunteers come together to make VBS a wonderful experience for all involved.

Summer Fun Activities are offered once a week during the summer time.  The activities vary but are always during the day time.
