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.
A new journey kicked off in the fall of 2011—the GA Journey!
Based on your ideas, this new individual achievement plan for Girls in Action® replaces WorldVenturessm.
GA Journey helps girls in grades 1–6 reinforce and live out the missions concepts they learn during regular GA sessions. This optional plan provides opportunities for individual GAs to deepen their missions discipleship and strengthen their faith.
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.
