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 with projects designed to be age-appropriate. 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. 

CMD 2015 registration will begin January 12, 2015. Projects do fill up fast, so check back here on January 12 to get your group registered. The cost is just $15 per person which includes an event T-shirt, lunch and some ministry supplies. Our locations are listed below, a few are tentative and those are marked with an asterisk.
