MBCH Children and Family Ministries
A large crowd enjoyed the beautiful facilities of First Baptist Church, Arnold at the 126th Strawberry Festival.
Beautiful donated quilts and crafts continued to be feature items at the Festival and the number of craft vendors continues to grow. Children and young families found the free children's area to be a great place to enjoy a Saturday while also learning about the ministries of Missouri Baptist Children's Home.
Volunteers of all ages helped make the Strawberry Festival a great success. FBC, Arnold provided volunteers for the kitchen, parking, shuttles, greeting and a multitude of other tasks. The Elevate Student Choir from Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Cabot, Arkansas made the festival one of the service stops on their choir tour and worked wherever needed. Other volunteers worked with bidder cards, keeping records of quilt and craft auction sales, handling quilts and crafts for the auctions, pricing and selling crafts and in the making of quilts and crafts that were donated for the Festival.
