Ava Kamau, 4, shows off the butterfly tattoo she receives free at the annual Parks and Recreation Easter Egg Hunt held in conjunction with Grover Park Baptist Church. The event includes a puppet show that tells the story of Easter.

Many places of worship call Warrensburg home.

As expected in the Bible belt, almost every place of worship is a church, and the community has a variety of Christian denominational and nondenominational churches.

With hundreds of students from foreign lands attending the University of Central Missouri, in addition to community residents with other beliefs, there is a Muslim Center at 137 E. Culton St., at the intersection with North College Avenue.

Warrensburg is home to these places of worship...
