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. Nursery for babies and infants is provided both during Sunday School (9:30 - 10:30 AM) and Worship (10:45 AM). Preschoolers meet in ED 302 for Sunday School and then remain with their class for worship and Extended Session. 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. After the message, children in kindergarten through 3rd grade are invited to participate in children’s church in ED 201.

Sunday Night at 6:00 PM, children in K-6th grades meet in ED 206 for discipleship with Bryson. Preschool age children meet in ED 302 with Stephanie Anderson. A nursery is available for babies and toddlers on Sunday night as well.

Wednesday Night is when 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, Mother/Daughter Night, swim parties, Trunk ‘R Treat, etc. For more information on upcoming children's ministry activities, visit our Children's Ministry Facebook page.  Our minister of children, Bryson Long, would love to hear from you and share more about what God is doing with our children's ministry.
