​Who Says Kids Can’t Do Missions Too?

July 19 2018

During One Mission Society’s Illuminate Conference from June 27-30, the One Mission Kids team and several volunteers had the privilege of hanging out with 15 amazing young missionaries-in-training. Through 19 hours of fun-filled and lesson-packed hours over the course of the 4-day conference, we witnessed children’s lives transformed. Some of the children at the conference had no idea where South Asia was located, but by the end of the conference, they helped raise $6,578 (pledged) for blankets and emergency relief aid kits for the people of South Asia. The kids’ hearts were broken for the South Asian people who must rebuild their lives from the ground up every year due to extreme flooding in their country.

Elijah, 4, loved raising money to be a light in South Asia, but that was not enough for him. He keeps asking his mom if they can go and actually deliver the blankets and relief kits to the people of South Asia.

During the conference, these young missionaries-in-training experienced the original One Mission Kids program, Agent 038. This missions-focused program includes songs, Bible lessons, games, crafts, missions, snacks, skits, and prayer time.

One of the most powerful things for me was seeing and hearing the children as they prayed. Ethan, 6, jumped at the chance to pray for South Asia every single time. This was a humbling thing to witness. As soon as he began praying for South Asia, I had goosebumps and tears in my eyes. The way he prayed for the people of South Asia profoundly impacted me and was one of the most powerful things I have ever had the privilege of being a part of.

If you would like to be a part of the “Be a Light in South Asia” missions project with us, join us in praying for the people of South Asia. And if you would like to donate to the project #405360-OMK, give here.

Agent 038 VBS-like Kids' Program Coming to Conference

June 25 2018

Do you have what it takes to be on the Agent 038 team?

One Mission Society's One Mission Kids ministry invites children ages 5-11 to this unforgettable experience to grow their missionary hearts by learning what it takes to be one of God’s best agents.

Our mission handbook, the Holy Bible, gives us specific instructions on what qualities are found in God’s best agents. 1 Peter 3:8 (ESV) says, “Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”

Join us for the 2018 Illuminate Missions Conference from June 27-30 at the Community Church of Greenwood for an opportunity to develop these important qualities through six exciting sessions, including energy-filled music, Bible verse memorization, power challenges, imaginative crafts, Bible stories, edible arts, and of course missions.

We want the children to walk away not only having had loads of fun, but also having learned how to live in harmony (Romans 12:19), live with sympathy (Colossians 3:17), live through love (1 John 4:10), live with tenderness (Ephesians 4:32), and to live in humility (Philippians 2:3). Children will also have the opportunity to help raise money for our missions project – Be the light for South Asia! This project helps to provide relief aid for flood victims in South Asia who lose all of their belongings every single year.
