Where?  First Baptist Church, Starkville(Children’s Building)

Who? Special needs children and their siblings (12 and under)

Cost?  FREE

Click Here to Register

Anything else I need to know?  Please bring your own bag.  Parents will need to send supper with their children due to dietary concerns (or feed your children before arrival).  We will provide snacks during our time together (i.e. popcorn, goldfish, animal crackers, pretzels). Please let us know if your child can share a snack with us!

 

 We look forward to serving your family!
