Our church seeks to instruct our children, youth and adults about missions here in the United States and around the world. To help facilitate this, our church primarily uses the WMU curriculum to learn about missions, become involved in missions, and live a missional lifestyle.
Mission Friends® meets on Sunday evenings from 6:00–7:00 p.m. during the months of June-August. In Mission Friends®, preschoolers begin to understand the missions concepts of praying, giving, and doing missions. They progress from a focus on self to a focus on others. They become aware that not everyone knows about God’s love. Preschoolers learn how they can help others in need.
Children in Action
Children in Action® meets on Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:00 p.m. during the months of June-August. Children are active and inquisitive. They begin at an early age to ask questions about the Bible, Jesus, and the church. Children in Action® groups help them become aware of God’s love for them and to understand that He loves all people everywhere. They recognize people who have needs and realize God can help them meet those needs. Children in grades 1st-6th are invited to participate.
Women on Mission
Women make major life changes that shape their decisions and identity. Being a part of a Women on Mission® group provides a place for women to feel needed and to be productive in helping others. Their spiritual growth will progress as they mature and develop a view of the world and an understanding of its lostness.
