Boston: Facts and Figures

This month, Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors and Children in Action will explore the city of Boston. Children will also have the chance to learn about the Mahon family and their important work sharing the gospel and reaching out with the love of Christ to their friends and neighbors. But before you teach your first lesson, it might be a good idea to brush up on a little Boston, Massachusetts, trivia.

RA FAQs

What is Royal Ambassadors?

Royal Ambassadors (RA) is a organization for boys in grades 1–6 that helps boys learn a biblical worldview with an emphasis on missions learning and missional living; develop leadership skills to serve God and share His love with others; and grow spiritually in their understanding of God and His mission, including how they are a part of God’s plan.

How do I start?

  • Pray about the possibility of starting Royal Ambassadors.
  • Starting a RA group requires boys, a leader, meeting time and place, RA curriculum, and a supportive pastor.
  • Download a starter pack

When and where can I have Royal Ambassadors?

Your CMD 2018 Stories

Children's Missions Day 2018 was a big success as children learned to "Go Serve" their communities. Let's see how children's missions groups served their neighbors this year!

Week of Prayer for North American Missions 2018

The Week of Prayer for North American Missions is nearly upon us! Starting on Sunday, March 4, 2018, Southern Baptists from all over will be specifically praying for various missionary efforts and the folks who oversee them here at home. From church planting to disaster relief and everything in-between, North American missionaries are continually on the lookout for ways to fulfill the Great Commission.

It may be difficult for some of us to think that missionary work needs to be done here at home. But as current trends of church decline and globalization of United States cities persist, missionary efforts here at home have perhaps never been needed more than they are now. In years past, to carry the message of Jesus Christ to different cultures and languages meant traveling the vast seas to parts unknown. Today, it means walking down the street to your neighbor's house! The world has come to our cities and states, and it's our job as believers to offer them a hand of friendship and the way of everlasting life through the life and love of Jesus.

Going for the Gold

Hello from Birmingham, Alabama! The high today — on February 20 — is 77 degrees! Can you believe it? (Probably, if you know anything about Alabama weather.) I love the cold weather, so I'm a little put out about it. It's supposed to get into the low 80s later this week. Meteorologists are saying we're going to break record highs for this time of year. If you like warm weather, I'm happy for you! If you like cold weather, we can commiserate together.

But enough about my weather pattern opinions. Let's focus instead on that word "record" I mentioned above. We're in the midst of the final week of the 2018 Winter Olympics. While the focus is on winning that gold medal, we often hear about athletes breaking world records while they're competing. Talk about exciting! What if you could use that excitement with the kids in your missions group?

Healthy competition can be a useful tool to encourage kids' participation in missions projects and during your weekly meetings. Here are some ideas to help you take a cue from the Olympics and get your kids more involved than ever.

Welcome to Children's Missions Day

Join thousands of kids across the country in hands-on ministry in your community for Children's Missions Day! WMU invites all children in grades 1–6 to participate on Saturday, February 17, 2018.

From feeding hungry people to visiting shut-ins, boys and girls follow God's command to "put your love into action" (1 John 3:18). Church groups create projects that meet needs in their own communities. WMU created Children's Missions Day to move children out of their churches and into their communities to do missions. The first Children's Missions Day was in 2008. Since then, thousands of people have taken part in this special day.

*You may have noticed we’ve recently changed the name of this event from Children’s Ministry Day to Children’s Missions Day. Don’t worry — this is not a typo! We’ve put plenty of thought and prayer into this change. Follow this link to read a little more about the difference between ministry and missions.

CMD 2018: Go Serve

Children's Missions Day (CMD) 2018 is coming soon! In fact, this annual February event will celebrate its 11th year this Saturday, February 17. It's not too late to join other children's missions groups nationwide in a great day of service to share God's love with people right in your own community. So, lace up your sneakers and get ready to hit the road and go serve!

Appropriately, the theme for this year's event is Go Serve. As you prepare your group for this special day, help children identify people in your area who are hurting — whether it's physically, spiritually or emotionally. Remember that a successful CMD project gives children the opportunity to tell someone what they know to be true about God while also meeting a physical need or offering words of encouragement. Ask children, What would you do for these people to share the love of Jesus with them?

Get 'em Before They're Gone!

I guess I'm like most men. I really don't like shopping. Oh, I'll go to the hardware store. That's okay. Or, I'll go to the sporting goods store if I really need something. But, most of the time when I have to shop, I'd rather do it online in the comfort of my own home or office. And when I shop online, I love the fact that I don't have to wait in long lines to accomplish the task at hand — you know, "Need it, find it, buy it and wait for it to be delivered to me."

Once a year, national WMU offers an incredible clearance sale that even I like — great items, great variety and really great prices! All I have to remember for this particular sale is that when the stock has been depleted, it is sold out. There are no back orders.

Right now is the time for the annual clearance sale! There are some great items available — at great prices — for children's missions leaders like you! But if you don't want to miss out on these great deals, you'd better hurry. Once an item has sold out, it is gone for good.

The following items are included in this year's WMU Clearance Sale:
