Join 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 each year.
WMU launched Children’s Missions Day in 2008 to move children out of their churches and into their communities to do missions. The goal is for children’s groups to create projects that meet needs in their own communities. 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). Thousands of people have already taken part in this special day.
If you have comments or questions about Children’s Missions Day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your state WMU office. We look forward to helping your kids do hands-on ministry!

WHY PARTICIPATE IN CHILDREN’S MISSIONS DAY?
Why should churches participate in Children’s Missions Day? It’s motivational. It’s easy. And it works!
Children’s Missions Day is motivational!
Children’s Missions Day is a great way to get the children in your church motivated and engaged in mission action in their own community. They are joining thousands of other children across North America to minister to people in their own community with the love of Jesus.
Imagine the impact the church of Jesus Christ could have in North America if children everywhere lead their entire church family to minister in their communities!
Children’s Missions Day is easy!
Children’s Missions Day is easy to implement. All the tools you need for planning and promotion are in the Missions Journey: Kids Annual Planning Kit 2023–24. The kit includes project ideas, learning activities, and promotional tools for your CMD event. The children’s digital packages for 2023–24 also include artwork for social media promotions, T-shirts, recognition certificates, and more!
Children’s Missions Day works!
Through Children’s Missions Day, God has used children to make a real difference in their communities.
We encourage churches to research the needs in their community and find ways children can meet those specific needs. We anticipate that many more lives will be impacted as children reach out in their communities with the love of Jesus.
