Muley's Kids' Messages - Jan - July 2018

You know we love visiting our church at 1000 S Cooper St with a monthly message for the kids (and congregation!) at 10:30 am on Sunday morning.  There's usually some coffee about 10am somewhere that you can meet and greet church members and ask questions.  Come out to First Congo and visit with us!

Muley never fails to captivate during the Children's Sermon!
Thanks to Kevin Williams for his talent and commitment to our
children's ministries. 6/18/2017

Muley and his human assistant, Kevin Williams, wait quietly
and very still in a tight box for at least a half-hour until it's time
for the Children's Sermon (below). But their dedication is rewarded
when they can see how much the children enjoy their special gifts! 4/23/2017
