Mission Opportunities for Children

Children who love Jesus also love to share that love with others by giving of their resources and time.  We provide mission opportunities in many of our ministries and events, both through offerings and service. Collections of money and clothes, hygiene or household items enable them to give to families and children locally and nationally. We have several family service projects during the year, where parents and children can participate together in a tangible way. Sometimes the missionaries our church supports share their experiences with the children during Sunday classes and other events.

For ideas about engaging your children in missions click here: Making Missions Come Alive.

During the Summer VBS (Vacation Bible School) and  RSG (Ready-Set-Go) our children are involved in various projects.

Mission projects currently available are:

Oak Park Food Pantry - Bring non-perishable foods to the church kitchen.

Operation Christmas Child - Prepare gift packages for needy children.

Feed My Starving Children - Family mission project in December in Aurora, IL.  

                                                    Contact Kim Wojack to learn more.

One Great Hour of Sharing - Collect money during the Lent and Easter season for disaster relief.
