Kids Ministry

Children's Ministry Day March 14, 2015

Children's Ministry Day is a one day hands-on missions opportunity specifically designed for kids in 1st-6th grade. This is a great opportunity for them to be motivated and engaged in mission action in their own community. Kids are experiential learners and this gives them the opportunity to experience value and meaning to what they have learned about missions, experience the fellowship and excitement of doing missions, and to instill a love for helping others. 

There are still projects open at several sites. PLEASE contact or (217) 391-3138 if you are interested in registering. The cost is just $15 per person which includes an event T-shirt, lunch, and some ministry supplies. Our locations are listed below.
