Are you ready to participate in the seventh annual Children's Ministry Day™?

Each February, thousands of children across North America participate in ministry projects on the same day: Children's Ministry Day.

From feeding hungry people to visiting shut-ins, girls and boys follow God's command to " put your love into action" (1 John 3:18). Church groups create projects that meet needs in their own communities.


For free resources including clip art, postcards, flyers, church poster, associational poster, video, and much more, go to and click on "Children's Ministry Day". You may also order a Promotional Pack to help you plan, promote, pray for, and teach kids about Children's Ministry Day.

WMU invites all children in grades 1–6 to participate. Plan your event today! Call or email Liz Encinia for more information at (214)828-5158 or


There are so many projects to choose from when it comes to the theme, "All For You". Be creative and help your children make a difference in their community.

Family Focus at Lifeway Christian Stores

Each year, children are mobilized to make a difference in their communities through Children's Ministry Day. This year, LifeWay Christian Resources wants to jump in on the fun.

LifeWay invites you to participate in Children's Ministry Day at your local LifeWay store. Each store has it's own unique mission project for community impact. Bring your children, invite a friend and take action. Our hope is that every child can walk away from these events ready to take their next steps in missions discipleship and ready to shout "All For You, Lord" with their lives.

Loads of Love!
Provide students with two treats at one event: clean laundry and a good breakfast! Work with a local college or a commercial coin laundry in your neighborhood.

Cookie Project
Reach out to adults with special needs with a fun, frosting-filled cookie day with sprinkles on top! Arrange with management of a group home to meet at your church for a fun event!

Host a giant-sized baby shower!

Children can help throw a shower to benefit the littlest ones served by a crisis pregnancy center, children's home, or food and supply depot.

Reach Every Paw
Another way to reach people's hearts is through their pets! Bless your local animal adoption center, or dog park by collecting and delivering doggie bags. You may even host a fun event at a local dog park or plan a "pics-with-your-pet" for people in your community.

cmd Changing Lives


Champion Forest Baptist, Houston, TX

On Sunday Feb 10th our Ga's 34 of them made 116 sock lunches (a pair of socks, a granola bar, fruit cup, bottle of water, spoon and track.). Then on Saturday Feb 16th, 6 Ga's and 12 adults went out with our homeless ministry Champions 4 Hope and passed out the sock lunches, a hot meal, and clothes to about 40 men. It was a very wonderful experience for our girls to see and they came home changed.

most asked questions

Q: Must we have our Children's Ministry Day event on the day printed?
A: No, you can have your event any time throughout the year. The February date is given to fall during the week of Focus on WMU, but you may pick another date that fits your church schedule.

Q: Is there a state sponsored CMD project that we can participate in?
A: No. We encourage you to use Children's Ministry Day as a way for your church to make an impact in your local community. You can do this on an individual basis or you can partner with other churches in your community or association to make a greater impact.

Q: We don't have any age-level organizations in our church. Can we still participate?
A: Of course you can! Our desire is that all children make an impact in their community, whether or not they are a part of GA or a CIA.

Q: What can we do?

A: You could host a baby shower benefit for a pregnancy crisis center, bless college students with breakfast and free laundry services, host a party for children of CWJC/CMJC participants, reach out to adults with special needs, hand out goodies at a local dog park or even prepare hygiene packs at a ministry center.
