Your CMD 2018 Stories

Children's Missions Day 2018 was a big success as children learned to "Go Serve" their communities. Let's see how children's missions groups served their neighbors this year!

“GAs, RAs and youth of our church raised items and monies for United Ministry of Sumter to help the homeless community in our area. We collected on 2 different days; we spent 1 day at a local hardware store, and on CMD we were at our local Walmart. We handed out flyers and thank-you Scripture notes to most who walked by us. The kids spent a total of 12.5 hours collecting in our community. Through the power of God, they were able to collect over $1,500 in cash and approximately $1,300 in merchandise. The following Wednesday night, they packed 30 backpacks with over 20 items to donate to United Ministry to hand out to those in need. The GAs, RAs and youth will go this Wednesday to feed the shelter guests and minister to them. We really love CMD at Providence and try it make it a project that lasts for more than a day and a project in which the kids can be hands-on in so many ways. The Lord truly blessed us as we served in community. The kids met so many people from so many backgrounds and churches that were happy to take time to give and to tell the kids, 'Thank you for serving.' Oh, the blessing we receive from blessing others.” (Take a look at the photo to the right for a glimpse of their awesome day!)

“We collected popcorn, drinks and copies of the movie Courageous to give to each of our 149 active police officers. We made thank-you cards, delivered them to the police station, sang a song and prayed with the cops there.”

“Our girls baked cookies and packed them into colorful boxes tied with a ribbon. We created a booklet that included an explanation of the plan of salvation and information about our church and the resources we offer. We then packed up the boxes and booklets and walked across the street to an apartment complex, where we went door to door with our pastor, talking to the residents and passing out our gifts of homemade chocolate chip cookies.”

“Our kids prepared hygiene and snack baskets that they delivered to our local fire departments. While there, the children sang to and prayed for our firefighters. They also made cookie mix in a jar. Then, they delivered them to our church's senior citizens and shut-ins. While at these homes, the kids sang, visited with, and prayed for these families.”

— Jamey Attaway, for the children of Hillcrest Baptist in Dyersburg, Tennessee
