Children’s Missions Day

Join thousands of 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.

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). Church groups create projects that meet needs in their own communities. WMU created Children’s Missions Day to move children out of their churches and into their communities to do missions. The first Children’s Missions Day was in 2008. Since then, thousands of people have taken part in this special day.

If you have comments or questions about Children’s Missions Day, please email or contact your state WMU office. We look forward to helping your kids do hands-on ministry!

Save the date on your church’s calendar for Children’s Missions Day 2022!

September 17, 2022


Children’s Missions Day used to be in February, why the change?

In February 2021, the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee voted on a new order of events for the 2022 calendar year. Among these changes was the decision to move Children’s Missions Day from February to September. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
