What are your plans for February 16, 2013?
You could sit in front of the TV and entertain yourself all day. You could complain about the cold and watch for snow flurries. You could max out your credit card at the mall.
Or…you could join thousands of children in making a hands-on difference for Christ in their own communities!
Some choices are easy!
God used hundreds of girls and boys to make a difference in their communities through Operation Education—Children’s Ministry Day 2012! It’s exciting to see how groups gave their time and talents to serve others in Christ’s name.

Children’s Ministry Day Initiates Church’s Hunger Relief Ministry

(Statesboro, Ga.) – Principal Shawn Haralson could count on one thing each school day as he greeted his students—Tom would be the last child off the bus. The driver held Tom back because he caused problems on the way to school. The boy often talked back to adults and started fights with other children. There seemed to be no motivating him to acceptable behavior.
