Girl's Sleepover

The girls of Quest Kids had a sleepover with Miss Jillian. The night was filled with crafts, games, movies and some spa treatments. 
The girls had a fun time without the boys and enjoyed spending the night at the church.

A Splash of Fun

The children from Kid City Camp all got together for some outdoor fun and games!
 The day was packed with fun water related games that was perfect on a hot sunny day. The kids had a great time reuniting with each other and meeting new friends with the group from Austin, Texas.

S'more Camping!

We took our Quest Kids on a three day camping trip!
We built our campfire and pitched our tents at Percy Quinn State Park in Mississippi. The kids spent their time swimming in the lake, picking blueberries, cooking over the campfire, sleeping in tents, and overall enjoying the great outdoors. 
 It was a wonderful experience for the kids to be in nature and spend time learning more about each other. All had fun and were tired by the end of the trip.

Earlier this month we celebrated the graduation of the children of Kid City and StAiR after school tutoring program. Friends and family members were all invited to help enjoy this special occasion. We were so proud of our kids this year with their hard work and great attitudes.
 Throughout the year we had a lot of fun together and got to know each of the kids personally. We are thankful for all of our faithful tutors and to God for another wonderful year.

a walk down memory lane

This past year has been a busy time for everyone, especially our Quest kids and tutoring program.
Our Quest kids were able to provide two families with a Thanksgiving meal this year. The kids enjoyed making a list of the food they would like to buy and then shopping for those items. We hope it showed the kids simple ways of serving others in the neighborhood while also being thankful for what we have.
We also had the pleasure of taking a trip to the zoo in November. There was a great turn out from everyone, with using about eighty tickets! The kids enjoyed exploring together and our volunteers enjoyed the sunshine and the animals.

Our Christmas party this year was a big hit. The kids had fun together eating lunch, singing, having story time, crafting, playing games, and opening Christmas presents! Special thanks to all from National Park Church of Christ in Arkansas!! It was a lot of fun for all and definitely added some Christmas cheer for the kids.

Fall 2011

Happy November!

With the autumn season comes the beginning of the school year, which means Kids City Ministries is in full gear. This year we have a total of fifteen students involved in STAIR and after school tutoring. We're all very excited to be working together and are grateful of our wonderful volunteers who give up their time to tutor.

A few weeks ago the kids were visited by the Soul Rebels. The brass band shared some history of brass band music in New Orleans.

Both the tutors and students enjoyed giving the instruments a try and listening to some tunes. It was a great way to end the week for everyone.
