Lunch Buddies

We have an opportunity to serve the school in our community, right around the corner, at Rice Elementary.

You will have a chance to interact with some great kids and teachers and really bless the faculty and staff at Rice. For more information, contact Stefanie Albright (see Family News email for contact information).

World Bible School

Through World Bible School, we have an incredible opportunity to share Jesus with others from the other side of the world, and as near as prisoners in the Texas Dept. of Corrections near Palestine, TX.

Pick Up and Drop Off for Kingdom Kids

For the safety of our children, its crucial to remember that we have a very important protocol which we must follow for dropping off and picking up kids for children’s worship. With the craziness of COVID, and the slow resumption of “normal” activities, we want to refresh everyone on this important procedure:

  • Children will be released from worship prior to the sermon. 
  • Parents must escort children to Children’s Worship and pick them up during the last song of the service. 
  • Please note that children will not be released to individuals other than parents/legal guardians or parent-appointed adults.
