We are encouraging our kids to read while they learn about Nazarene Missions all over the world. We will share a children's Missions Book during Sunday Children's Church. They will discover the value of following Christ through the engaging stories of our missionaries. Each lesson is followed by a fun craft which is inspired by the story. We are building a foundation for our children to learn about serving the God we love and the people He loves.
Each child who participates in our Missions book day will be eligible to attend our annual Nazarene Mission Book Readers Ice Cream Party! (Missions book days vary. Children's Church is every Sunday at 10:30am.)
Kids are encouraged to borrow our children's Nazarene Mission Books to read at home or have an adult read to them. For every book completed, they will receive prizes, rewards and is also eligible to attend the NMI Missions Book Readers ice cream party! Share as a family good discipleship in the Lord and the love of others. 
*Children's Missions Books are free to check out and are available in the Children's Annex. Books are limited. Please don't forget to write your name in the check-out log and return within 30 days.
Thanks for Reading!
