During the month of August, children’s missions groups collect gifts for a select group of North American missionaries. The items are used to help these missionaries replenish ministry supplies, purchase items for ministry centers, and minister to people in their communities who need to hear about Jesus.
Help the children in your church get involved in Christmas in August® 2012:
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.
Special Assignments is an individual achievement plan for boys and girls. It helps children deepen their understanding of missions.
Special Assignments can be used as a part of Children in Action. Or it can supplement any children's group or homeschool class.
Either once a month or quarter, Children in Action groups are encouraged to work on a Special Assignment.
Many Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action groups participate in special missions emphases each year.
North American Missions Emphasis
Every spring, children can participate in the North American Mission Study, which is part of the North American Missions Emphasis. This study is provided by the North American Mission Board.
Would your kids like to hike, sing fun songs, and learn about missions? Do your Girls in Action and Children in Action enjoy swimming, playing games, and studying the Bible? How about making new friends they’ll never forget?
If so, send them to GA camp, Children in Action camp, or another missions camp this summer. You may even get to go along!
