Your CMD Stories (part 4)

Children can share God's love through Children's Ministry Day.

We’ve got more stories for you! Let’s hear what children from across the country did for this year’s Children’s Ministry Day to love their neighbors.


“Our group made 6 fruit and baked good baskets and delivered them to shut-ins in our community.” (For a glimpse of the baskets and the girls loving their neighbors, see the photo collage to the right!)

—Becky Vick, for the GAs at Midway Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi


“GAs, RAs, and Mission Friends celebrated Children's Ministry Day with ‘Souper Saturday’! They prepared bags of bean soup mixes and attached notes from our church. We delivered the bean soup bags to a neighborhood behind our church. Children took turns knocking on doors and introducing the group. We then asked for prayer requests, which were later typed and distributed to adult Sunday School classes. It was a very good way to meet our neighbors! After we delivered our soup mixes, we went back to the church for a lunch of, what else? SOUP!”

—Susan Bryant, for the GAs, RAs, and Mission Friends of Graefenburg Baptist in Waddy, Kentucky


“Our Children in Action group chose to show love to our active soldiers. The children put together boxes with snacks, paper, pens, envelopes, lip balm, hygiene products, Bibles, and many other items they had been collecting over the month. They also wrote thank-you letters and made Valentines cards. We sent them to many soldiers all over the globe. We took turns praying for our soldiers and their families.”

—Sheila Mills, for the CAs at Green Valley Southern Baptist Church in Mount Vernon, Ohio


“Our GAs and RAs joined together with our WMU ladies to create ‘Baskets of Blessings’ for local places with community helpers: school teachers’ lounges, parish library, fire station, and Hope House. Each child brought individually wrapped, homemade goodies. We affixed Scripture label stickers to each treat and sorted the treats into baskets that were running over. Each child and his or her parents then delivered a basket to the school, library, or fire station to say thanks for their help in our community and to share the gospel.”

—Jennifer Dorhauer, for the GAs and RAs at Riverside Baptist Church in Denham Springs, Louisiana
