Your CMD 2019 Stories (Part 2)

We have more stories for you! Let's hear what children from across the country did for this year's Children's Missions Day to tell the good news to their communities. 

“This year the Jefferson Street Baptist children decided they wanted to make our Children’s Missions Day personal. Each child added someone to the prayer list they knew in our community and the surrounding area who was going through some rough times. The children decorated cupcakes and made cards to deliver to these people and let them know that God loves them, we love them, and we are praying for them. Even some of our children who were not able to join us that day were able to help make the cards beforehand. We were all excited to see how much the people appreciated knowing someone was praying for them and took the time to visit and listen to them.” (For a glimpse of their day, check out the picture to the right!)

“First time our church has participated! We started at NWBC with various crafts (prayer rocks, smiley bookmarks, thank-you cards, etc.) created to be handed out in a gift bag that the children decorated. We then went to a nearby assisted living facility where we shared our Bible theme verse (including shouting Go Tell!) and songs. Each child had a craft item which they passed around, filling the decorated gift bags, with the goal of easy interaction with people the children had never meet before—lots of smiles resulted!  We also prepared smaller goody bags for the employees of the facility. Our CMD ended back at church with a pizza lunch. Blessings abundant!!”

— North Walterboro Baptist Church, South Carolina

“Twenty children from two churches (our church and our church plant) met from 9:00 a.m. to noon to bake cookies and brownies, make cards, and sign Bibles with special verses to deliver to four first responders in our area. What a blessing for the children to share Jesus and show their appreciation to these wonderful men and women!”

“The children took baskets filled with facial tissue, gelatin dessert, pudding, and other items to some of the homebound church members.”
