NEW ORLEANS (BP) -- Registration is open for preschool childcare as well as Children in Action and Youth on Mission programs in conjunction with the Southern Baptist Convention's June 19-20 annual meeting in New Orleans.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief childcare units will care for preschoolers, while Woman's Missionary Union will guide the Children in Action and Youth on Mission curricula and activities.
Preschool childcare and activities for grades 1-6 will be housed at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, the annual meeting site. Students in grades 7-12 will meet at the convention center before going into the community with Baptist Friendship House for hands-on mission work. Students will return to the convention center prior to the close of the afternoon session each day.
Registration is handled online at www.sbcannualmeeting.net under the "Children and Students" tab. Space is limited.
Children in Action will be offered June 19-20.
"To the Finish Line" is the theme for Children in Action, designed to challenge children entering grades 1-6 to live Christ-centered lives, said Cindy Bradley, Michigan WMU executive director and children's camp coordinator.
"Bible studies will encourage attendees to choose to follow Christ, train spiritually, move past obstacles to faith and win a heavenly prize," Bradley said. "In addition to Bible studies, children will visit with missionaries representing both the International Mission Board and North American Mission Board and will participate in worship sessions, games and recreation, and crafts and mission projects."
Children in Action is $35 per child. In addition, there is a $10 non-refundable registration fee per child.
