The Children's Ministry at FBC Walnut Ridge exists to help children and their parents know the Lord Jesus Christ and fulfill His mission of reaching people and making disciples.

Sunday Morning at 9:30 AM, there are children’s classes for all ages. Grades k-6, come visit the Kid Zone.

  • Babies and toddlers remain in the nursery.

  • Preschool age meet in Room MPR 2 for extended session. (right across from the arrival hood)

  • Children in grades K-6 participate with their families in the worship service.

  • Each week in the worship service, Bryson Long, our children’s minister, invites children to sit with him on the steps of the stage for a children’s sermon.

Sunday Night at 6:00 PM, children ages 3-12 are currently meeting in Kid Zone Room 206 for things like Bible Blitz, Running the Race and more. A nursery is available for babies and toddlers on Sunday night as well.

Wednesday Night: Awana meets at 6:00 PM during the school year for children ages 2 years thru 6th grade. The term "Awana" is an acronym that stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed," which is taken from the Bible in 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV): " Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman who does not need to be ashamed; accurately handling the word of truth." 

Through games, large group, Scripture memorization, and a meal, the Awana ministry is helping children and their families come to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ.

In addition, other exciting events occur throughout the year like CentriKid Camp, Vacation Bible School, Easter Egg Hunt, Father/Son Campout, Mother/Daughter Night, and Back-2-School Block Party.
