Try this idea to teach kids about missions

P1020316

When I was at Christ Fellowship in West Palm Beach, Florida, I saw a room that they use to help raise awareness for missions.

It runs on a reward system.  When kids come to church, bring their Bible or learn their Bible verse, they get “dollars”.  They can use these dollars to purchase things at the store.  The neat thing is, the items for sale in the store are things like “clean water” or “rice” or “blankets” or other items that are needed by people both locally and across the world in their missions projects.  Then the church uses real money from their missions budget to purchase those items to give to those who need them.  Kids are motivated to help others by learning their Bible Verses and coming to church.  How cool is that!  For more information, you can email Dale Hudson.  Check out his blog at www.relevantchildrensministry.com .
