BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — On Feb. 14 church groups and families from around the country will collectively put faith into action through national Woman’s Missionary Union’s (WMU) Children’s Ministry Day.
During Children’s Ministry Day, with a Valentine’s theme of “Loving Hearts,” participants are asked to minister to health care needs in their communities, following the admonition of 1 John 3:18 (NIrV): “Dear children, don’t just talk about love. Put your love into action. Then it will truly be love.”
“Children’s Ministry Day allows children’s groups from all over North America to minister and witness together,” said Mitzi Eaker, children’s ministry consultant for national WMU. Last year’s inaugural Children’s Ministry Day engaged an estimated 15,000 participants to provide help and hope to the hungry. Each year, Children’s Ministry Day seeks to evoke compassion that extends beyond the pews into the community.
