The Fifth Annual Children’s Ministry Day Saturday, February 18, 2012 What is Operation Education? Operation Education [op-uh-rey-shuhn eh-doo-kay-shuhn] noun: the theme for Children’s Ministry Day 2012. Church leaders will encourage their children to serve their communities and live their faith by getting involved with missions projects related to education. Children’s Ministry DayTM is an annual, one-day missions experience created by WMU®. “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” -John Dewey Why take part in Children’s Ministry Day 2012? 1. It’s inspiring. Children and their leaders reach out with God’s love. 2. It’s easy. Churches create their own hands-on, missions projects. 3. It works. Through missions projects, children live out their faith and are more likely to get involved again. Since 2008, more than 150,000 people have taken part in Children’s Ministry Day! WMU invites all children in grades 1-6 to participate. So how can my children serve God while contributing to someone’s education? Plan an education-related missions project that kids can carry out in your community. Could your group collect books for a literacy ministry? Send encouraging notes to GED students? Clean classrooms at a local school? The possibilities are endless!
