International Kids Study


It’s almost time for our fifth annual associational Children’s International Mission Study, this year to be held on Saturday, October 19, at Don Avenue Baptist Church, 1010 Don Avenue, Denham Springs. The 2019 study title is “Rohingya: The Most Persecuted People in the World.” Our children will learn about this persecuted people group and our Southern Baptist missionaries who seek to minister to them and share Jesus.


We do together what we cannot do alone!
