Unshakable – Children's Missions

As children are introduced to missional concepts, they learn they have an active part to play in God’s plan for their lives and for the world. They come to understand God can use them now—even in their youth—to share His love with others and make a difference. Experiences gained through childhood missions education lead to a lifelong commitment of service to God, His mission, and His church.

Girls in Action for girls, Royal Ambassadors for boys, and Children in Action for coed groups, are ongoing missions discipleship organizations for children in grades 1–6.

Through these organizations, children . . .

  • read and understand accounts from the Bible of God’s love for all people and His plan for saving them.
  • experience prayer as an active, vital part of supporting God’s mission.
  • discover that giving to missions supports God’s mission while teaching the proper role of financial resources in a Christian’s life.
  • impact God’s mission as they actively share their faith with others through missions projects and activities.

 

What is Unshakable?

“My dear friends, stand firm and don’t be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord. You know that everything you do for him is worthwhile” (1 Corinthians 15:58 CEV).

Unshakable is the 2018–2019 theme for Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action. Through this emphasis, children will apply 1 Corinthians 15:58 to their own lives in their own communities as they learn about having an unshakable faith in God and His promises.

Plan now with the Unshakable Promotion Pack. This kit includes enhancement activities and posters to kick the year off right. The pack also includes Children’s Missions Day 2019 ideas that will help engage children in a missions project in your own community.

  • Use the Unshakable clip art to help promote this year’s theme in newsletters, room decorations, or bulletin board materials.
  • Consider awarding the Unshakable Badge/Patch to children who participate in any themed activities this year.
  • Don’t forget to share your Unshakable theme ideas with other leaders on our Facebook pages! Girls in Action | Royal Ambassadors
