Children in Action

Bible Storytelling Basics

Storytelling is a vital part of your weekly GA, RA, and CA meetings as you teach children important lessons from the Bible and share amazing stories from people serving on the missions field. It's important to brush up on your storytelling skills from time to time. Let us help you!

What Should I Do First?

“If I knew where to begin, I would have already started!”

Putting Feet to Your Faith

One of the most important parts of missions is not just learning, but doing. That's what Children's Missions Day (CMD) is all about. During CMD, kids get the opportunity to put feet to what they've learned. They get to be on mission, maybe for the first time.
