Are you ready to participate in the seventh annual Children’s Ministry Day™?
Join thousands of children across North America in hands-on ministry in your community! On Children’s Ministry Day, kids and their families can join in GenerationReach ministry projects that will touch the lives of babies, Boomers, Busters, GenXers, singles, and seniors – any age-demographic group that differs from their own. . The official day for CMD is Feb 15, 2014, but you can set another convenient date for CMD that fits your ministry schedule.
The King will reply,”What i’m about to tell you is true. Anything you did for one the the least important of these brothers of mine, you did for me,” Matthew 25:40 NIrV
- Children can read about missions, hear about missions, and watch missions videos – but nothing can touch their hearts as effectively as doing missions and seeing how their actions affect others. The knowledge that your children will be on mission simultaneously with other groups all over the country promotes a Wow! Look what God can help us do! mindset.
- The goal of Children’s Ministry Day extends beyond a one-time ministry activity–its aim is to jumpstart a lifetime of serving others. Use these ideas to help children understand how and why they can minister to people from a different age group.
