Lady Madonna

Luke 1:46-55; Luke 2:41-52
She was the mother of God, sure. But also at some point the mother of a teenager. And the mother of other children. And in a working-class family. How does she handle all of that without losing her mind?

Family Ministries

We have fourteen 6th grade students going through confirmation class this year. They have already been learning about the History of Methodism, the Holy Trinity, and how to access scripture when they need somewhere to turn. Now, they will need our help this spring as we dig deeper into Sacraments, Social Principles, Grace, and more.

If you feel a call to help a young adult on their faith journey this coming spring or would like more information on what being a mentor entails, please contact Allison Earhart.

Christmas in Bentonville

Join us on December 13th at 6pm in Hines Hall for Christmas in Bentonville, presented by Children's Ministry kids. What do you think it would be like if Jesus was born this year, in Bentonville? Our children have been working hard the past 2 months in preparation for this play and they would love to have your support on their big night.

Youth Ministries will have a Hot Cocoa Bar after the performance, all donations will be going towards the NWA Children's Shelter.
