Children in Action (Grades 1-6 completed May/June 2013)
Children in Action registration is closed.
Registration is open for preschool childcare, Children in Action Missions Camp and Youth on Mission in conjunction with the Southern Baptist Convention’s June 11-12 annual meeting in Houston, Texas.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief childcare volunteers will care for preschoolers, while the Woman’s Missionary Union will guide the Children in Action Missions Camp and Youth on Mission curricula and activities.
Preschool childcare and activities for children who have completed grades 1-6 will be housed at the George R. Brown Convention Center, the annual meeting site. Youth who have completed grades 7-12 will begin their days at the Convention Center with worship before going into the community for hands-on missions work at the Mission Centers of Houston and the Houston Food Bank.
Pre-registration is required and will be accepted online at www.sbcannualmeeting.net under the “Children/Youth” tab. All participants should register as soon as possible because of limited space.
Due to space limitations and worker-to-children ratio objectives, onsite registration will not be accepted.
Children in Action Missions Camp for children who have completed grades 1 -7 by May/June will be offered June 11-12.
The camp theme “Fearless” is designed to challenge children to follow God’s plan with courage, wherever He leads.
“Children attending the Children in Action Missions Camp will not only discover they can follow God’s plan with courage, wherever He leads, but through Bible studies will be encouraged to be fearless as they step forth in sharing their faith in Christ and meeting the needs of others,” said Cindy Bradley, Michigan WMU executive director and camp coordinator.
“In addition to Bible studies children will visit with missionaries representing both the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board,” Bradley said. “Children will also participate in worship sessions, games and recreation, crafts and mission projects. These Bible study and missions experiences will show children how they can serve with fearless faith.”
The cost is $40 per child. In addition, there is a $10 non-refundable registration fee per child. Snacks will be provided; lunch will not. Parents will need to pick up their children both days at the conclusion of the morning session.
