What are your plans for February 15, 2014?
You could sit in front of the TV and entertain yourself all day. You could complain about the cold and watch for snow flurries. You could max out your credit card at the mall.
Or…you could join thousands of children in making a hands-on difference for Christ in their own communities!
Some choices are easy!
Mark your calendars now for the seventh annual Children’s Ministry Day. This year’s theme is “GenerationReach.” How can the girls and boys in your church lend a hand to others outside their own generation?
Start brainstorming now! Lead your church to plan a hands-on Children’s Ministry Day project that involves children in direct ministry to unchurched community members. Use these ideas to get you started.
- Minister to a single parent
- Throw a baby shower for a crisis pregnancy center
- Provide college students with care packages
- Spend time with a preschooler who doesn’t have family close by
- Serve a meal to a senior adult
- Wash a teenager’s car before they head off to work
Keep the Children’s Ministry Day 2014 theme verse in mind as you prepare to serve: “Lord, I will sing about your great love forever. For all time to come, I will tell how faithful you are. I will tell everyone that your love stands firm forever. I will tell them that you are always faithful, even in heaven itself” (Psalm 89:1-2 NIrV).
