Walnut Ridge Kidz Ministry

We partner with parents to help children learn how to love God, love people, and live a faithful life with Jesus Christ.

Children in grades K to 4th meet on the second floor of the worship building. Children in grades 5 and 6 meet in the south building. There are volunteers at each welcome desk every Sunday to get your children signed in and plugged in to the appropriate group.
