HOW CAN children be involved in ministry to people outside their own churches? Hundreds of children and adults will be doing ministry in their own communities on or around Feb. 13 as part of Children’s Ministry Day (CMD).
“CMD is a great way to encourage your children to be involved in ministry and (show them) the importance of showing others about the love of Jesus,” said Charity Taylor, Arkansas Baptist State Convention missions team member.
This year’s theme – All for You – will help children realize they are able to share Jesus’ love with others as they serve people in their communities.
“This opportunity provides a great foundation for equipping children to live out the Great Commission,” Taylor said, encouraging people to join children around the U.S. as they minister in their communities Feb. 13 or another convenient day. “Look around your community for ways children can be involved in ministry. Is there a Laundromat where children can provide quarters and laundry detergent as they show God’s love to others? Can children go shopping to help provide a meal for a family in the community? What other needs are there in your community that children can be involved in ministering to?”
