How will this Advance project help to address the need?
The United Methodist Children’s Fund for Christian Mission helps children learn about and make contributions to a select group of mission projects that are chosen for their value in helping children understand what it means to “be in mission.” Projects change each year which provides children with a variety of learning experiences and a diverse understanding of children in other states and countries. This is a joint program of the General Board of Discipleship and the General Board of Global Ministries. The Children’s Fund seeks to (1) educate children about mission and (2) provide a way for children to give to mission beyond their local church.
