Children’s Extravaganza- WMU (co-ed)
Children’s Extravaganza Join us for this unique missions event for boys and girls in grades 1-6! Enjoy a day full of activities that reflect strength in everyday life. Children will meet missionaries and learn from their stories of strength, embrace their creative strengths through crafts, and build each other up through team activities (after all, teams are stronger than individuals). Children will also watch Strong Man Cameron Bailey demonstrate his physical strength abilities and engage in prayer experiences that will make their relationship with Jesus stronger. Make sure your children can take part of this missions focused experience!
Theme: BE STRONG “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9)
Registration Fee $15 per participant, includes lunch. Online registration is available below.
