WMU® believes that it is never too soon to get involved in missions. That’s why we offer a variety of ways to involve children in missions through missions education. This age-level organization tells stories of how God is working in the world today and teaches girls and boys that they have a purpose in God’s plan. As children engage in relevant curriculum they will begin to develop a biblical worldview and global perspective. Children will also be taught the foundations of the Christian faith.

What is Children in Action?

Children in Action® (CiA) it the missions organization of WMU for girls and boys ages 6-11 or grades 1-6. This provides an environment for active learning, scripture learning and scriptural application. As a result of using relevant curriculum the girls and boys will engage in learning experiences that teach the biblical basis of missions. This organization provides a great outreach to children in your community.

Changing a child’s heart through Children in Action

Children will learn how to demonstrate the missions concepts of praying, giving and doing missions. As children grow they will be able to learn how to develop a lifestyle of missions. They will also learn about missionaries from all over their world and understand the work that they do in their country. Girls and boys will be able to learn how to apply the Bible to their lives and learn how to pray and intercede in prayer for others. Children in Action® cultivates an atmosphere of acceptance of children and offers opportunities for parents to serve. This level of missions education will encourage children to provide outreach to the community, the church, and non-churched families.

“We learn more about stuff to pray for. We pray for the missionaries and the missionary kids. Sometimes there are boys just like me.”

“I like it when we read the Bible. I like to learn about God and Jesus. And I really like to learn a lot about the Bible. I like to learn the memory verses. It helps me remember to be nice to my friends.” – Cullen, age 8
