Children also participate in local missions projects throughout the year with the RAs and GAs. Mission Friends participate in and are recognized at the End of Year Recognition Service in May.
Girls in Action
Girls in Action is a WMU program designed for all 1st-6th grade girls. Students learn how to put Christ’s love into action and spread the gospel in our church and community daily through activities, prayer, stories, games, and service. GAs are recognized for their participation and for completing specific mission-based projects at the End of Year Recognition Service. Each May, girls are presented with the service badges earned and recognized for their achievements throughout the year. Girls will develop closer relationships with Christ and each other through praying, sharing, and serving together.
Royal Ambassadors is a WMU program designed specifically for boys in 1st-6th grade. Boys learn through Bible studies, missionary studies, physical activities, games, and service how to be a missionary in their local community. RAs build relationships with Christ and others as they serve in the church and outside of the church. RAs support North American and International Missionaries through prayer, Annie Armstrong, Lottie Moon, and Christmas in August. RAs participate in several service activities throughout the year and are recognized at the End of Year Recognition Service with badges earned.
