GA

Curriculum

WMU provides three curriculum lines for children in grades 1 through 6:

All for You

All for You is the 2014–2015 theme for Girls in Action®, Royal Ambassadors® and Children in ActionSM. Through this year’s theme and materials, children will hear stories from the Bible and current missionaries while they learn how to surrender, sacrifice, and serve in their own communities and around the world. In other words, children will learn that everything we do is for God!

The Value of Camp

Should your group go to camp this summer? Consider these possible benefits as you make your plans.

Reaching Out to the Families of GAs

Girls in Action® leaders who share the work of missionaries contribute to the spiritual as well as educational development of children and youth. Here are some ways you can encourage the families of GAs to participate in missions learning on a regular basis. You might plan this as a quarterly activity to begin with, then evaluate later to determine if you’d like to offer this more often.

GA 100 Celebration Videos

At the WMU Missions Celebration this past June, missionaries, Acteens, and former GAs all spoke to the value of missions education for girls and how their experiences in GA and/or Acteens influenced their worldview and responsibility for being involved in missions. Check out these podcasts and videos to hear their stories.

Tell the Story

Tell the Story is the 2013-2014 theme for Children in Action, Girls in Action, and Royal Ambassadors. Children will hear stories from the Bible, from missionaries, and will learn how to tell their own story.

January: The Jacques Avakian Story

 Supplies

• world map (paper or online)
• paper
• colored pencils

1. Direct your group to the world map. Point out these locations on the map: Armenia, Lebanon, Cyprus, and Montreal. If you are using an online map, perform a search for those places. Plot out the traveling distance from each location to your home.

January: The Lon Vining Story

 Supplies

• chalkboard and chalk, dry-erase board and dry-erase marker, or poster board and marker

1. Explain that you will name a place. The children should silently act out what they would do if they visited that place. For example, if you call out “swimming pool,” children will pretend to swim.

2. Call out these places: weight room, trampoline, jogging trail, basketball court, football field, soccer field, track, baseball field, hockey arena, tennis court, and dog park.

It’s that time of year again! Children are back in school, wide-eyed young adults are on college campuses, and those of us in leadership in the church realize a new church year is upon us. Hopefully your WMU® leadership team has already met and developed a calendar of great missions learning experiences for all ages as well as ministry projects that will impact your community and beyond in the coming year.
