Hi Chris!

I work for KidzMatter Ministries: we are associated with AWANA and we partner with churches in helping their children's ministries grow and help them be effective in the lives of kids. I wanted to let you know that KidzMatter is holding a special network/lunch for Children's Ministry Pastors and Leaders on November 26 at Northside Baptist Church in Liverpool. I thought anyone involved in you and your children ministry team might be interested in this event! It's a great way to connect with other people who share your passion for children!
You can check it out here. 
Many Blessings!

Hi, Chris!

"Mary Rice Hopkins & Puppets with A Heart" is a NEW Christian children's program which employs the use of live action, master puppetry, and song to create a weekly episodic program which equally entertains and teaches valuable life-choices to its young audience. 

You can tune in Saturdays on TBN or view online.  This show deals with tough issues kids are facing today and will change children's hearts for a lifetime.  Program schedule on Saturdays:  8:30 a.m. (PST), 9:30 a.m. (MT), 10:30 a.m. (CT), and 11:30 a.m. (EST).
