Proclaiming the Greatness of God
by nurturing the next generation
of Christ followers

Our purpose

The Children's Ministry of Morrison Heights Baptist Church exists to lead children to glorify God through partnering with parents to help children build the right foundation for life, seek to find God, know him personally, and live out this salvation in their daily lives.  

We desire to follow Christ's command to make disciples of children and consistently expose them to the gospel of Jesus in order that they will place their trust in him and join in taking this good news to all nations beginning right here in Clinton.
