Under the Acacia Tree

June 20‐23, 2016
9:00 a.m.‐ 12:00 p.m.
(ages 4 to entering 6th grade)

Children from four years old through sixth grade are invited to gather Under the Acacia Tree to explore the Bible and learn about God’s great work on the continent of Africa through Africa University. Walk with Moses, Samuel, Joshua, and Jesus as they teach us about God’s love and we learn to share it with others!

The fun begins with a church-wide family picnic at Mayes Lake on Sunday, June 19. Then kids will enjoy all the stories, fun, games, and very special visitors Monday, June 20 through Thursday, June 23 from 9am until noon.

MissionFest 2016

What is MissionFest?

It is a week when youth and adults from churches across the state (and even from other states) come together for inner-city service, Bible Study, worship, and fellowship -- building relationships in the name of Jesus Christ. MissionFest will change you if you let it, and God will be in the center of all of it.

Who Comes to MissionFest?

Youth who have completed grades 6-12 and their adult chaperones participate in MissionFest, with strong involvement from churches in the Mississippi Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Our hope is to extend the ministry of MissionFest to more denominational and non-denominational church groups and to school groups who are really trying to focus on community service.
