Join us for this one day hands-on missions opportunity specifically designed for kids in grades 1-6. 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.
Registration is easy! Cost is $10 per participant with a $30 family cap. Up to two leaders from each church can attend for free!
Leaders, pick your favorite location and sign your kids up. Be sure to include each participant’s name and T-shirt size in the registration. Someone from the location team will contact you about available projects and answer any questions you may have.
See you on March 9!
