Children's Auditorium




Would the child in your life like to practice reading out loud to some furry friends? Children's Department Staff will read a story, and then PawPrint Ministries will introduce their dogs and talk about what they do in the community. Afterward, children will have the opportunity to read to the dogs, taking turns in small groups with a canine friend. Children from K-8 can sign up, but the group size is limited, so please sign up soon! First come, first served. The child's adult and siblings can attend too, or wait in the Children's area.

Register online here or call 217-424-2900 x. 5.
