Pea Ridge Baptist Church invites families to ‘Hometown Nazareth’

Published 1:34 pm Friday, June 10, 2011

A summer family event called “Hometown Nazareth: Where Jesus was a Kid” will be hosted at Pea Ridge Baptist Church from Sunday, June 12 – Friday, June 17. Families will step back in time at “Hometown Nazareth,” exploring what it was like to live in the town where Jesus grew up.

Kids and adults will participate in a Bible-times marketplace, sing songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Jesus’ mom, Mary, and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s word. Everyone will also learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called “God Sightings.” Each day concludes at celebration – a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.

Kids and adults at “Hometown Nazareth” will join nearly a million participants reaching out to at-risk kids through a hand-on mission project called Operation Kid-to-Kid, in which families will paint backpacks to send to needy children in Latin America.
