Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action love to do hands-on missions projects!
Each month, GA Leader, RA Leader, and Children in Action Leader suggest a missions project for groups to do. Many groups also plan their own projects, based on the needs of their communities.
These projects might include:
Also, we frequently give new project ideas in our weekly blogs or on social media. Whatever needs you decide to meet, ensure children are experiencing the Great Commission by showing them how to share God’s love with others as they meet needs in your community.
Most children enjoy writing other Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action groups. WMU does not maintain a pen pal list, but leaders can exchange information on our Facebook pages as a way to find groups interested in earning the Pen Pals badge/patch.
Some children's groups also enjoy writing missionaries and missionary kids (MKs). Use these tips to ensure a fun experience for both your children and the MKs:
Every year in August, children's missions groups collect gifts for a select group of North American missionaries. These items help missionaries replenish ministry supplies, purchase items for ministry centers, and minister to people who need to hear about Jesus.
Does Christmas in August really make a difference? Yes, it does! Read testimonies from past Christmas in August recipients.
