Children in Action

Raising Thankful Children

Thankful table

Growing up, most of us were taught to be thankful for what we had. For many of us, saying “thank you” was just as important as saying “excuse me” or “yes, ma’am.”

If you grew up in the South, that was especially true for you! But beyond saying the words themselves, how do we teach our children to be truly thankful people? It starts by modeling real thankfulness.

Encouraging the "Thanks" in Thanksgiving

I love this time of year. The leaves turn many shades of beautiful, people wrap themselves in comfortable sweaters, and something about the air feels different as it turns crisp and cool. The fall season sets itself apart in beauty and the promise of something new.

Your role in helping sixth-graders transition smoothly from GA, RA, and CA to Acteens, Challengers, and Youth on Mission is an opportunity to prepare children for the next stage of their missions education journeys.

Using Technology for Missions

Isn't it amazing how much more of the world we can reach each new day? Technological advances in today's society have opened so many new doors to people we could never have reached just 20 years ago, and they have broadened our influence within our own communities.

Incorporating Technology into Missions

I recently reflected on stories my father told me about his childhood. He spoke about going to the "picture show" with his siblings, which was a special treat for them.

Getting to Know Appalachia

How much do you know about Appalachia? Do you know where it is located? Who lives there? The ministry needs that are found there?
