QUEST

Quest is a new program for children in 3rd – 5th grades (6th graders may participate if they are not part of the youth department in their local congregation) sponsored by the Arkansas Conference Council on Children’s Ministries (CCCM).  Created as a way for pre-teens to begin to: 1. Explore the meaning of God’s call on their lives, 2. Develop and deepen their practice of spiritual disciplines, 3. Acquire a solid foundation of United Methodist theology,  4. Become equipped to go into the world with confidence in their faith and calling, so  they may, in turn, make disciples who make disciples of Jesus Christ.
