Summer Missions Ideas

by Kathy Firkins

Summer is a relaxing and laid-back time for most people. During the summer months, many families come to church events who might not participate during the busy school year.

This summer, plan a few fun events to stay in touch with current and prospective members of your children’s missions organizations. Or, allow time for extra events during your summer missions meetings. Here are a few ideas:

Have a Splash Party with water games. Encourage participants to donate money to Pure Water Pure Love. Learn more at wmu.com/ministries.

Schedule a Bike Out for World Hunger. Choose a local park where participants can earn money to alleviate world hunger. Visit worldhungerfund.com for hunger relief information.

Begin planning your Christmas in August drive to collect supplies for missionaries. Visit our Christmas in August page for ideas and supply lists.

Host a Summer Shower for WorldCrafts. Participants can support missions all over the world while enjoying items handcrafted by Worldcrafts artisans. Check out worldcrafts.org.
