2018-2019 Project - Kids Summer Bible Camps

Since 2005, children have been supporting the Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society (LWMS) kids c.a.r.e. (care about reaching everyone with the gospel) program. Children learn about a mission, pray for the mission, and bring their offerings to meet its needs.Through kids c.a.r.e. children learn that they, too, have an important role in sharing the good news about Jesus.

It is our prayer that the projects will instill in our children a mission-mindedness for life.We pray they will grow up sharing the Word with friends and neighbors, give generously to mission work around the country and the world, and even consider becoming full-time servants of the Word as staff ministers, pastors, and teachers. Will you partner with us in this endeavor?

Through previous kids c.a.r.e. projects, children have supported mission work in places such as Mexico, Russia, Malawi, and many home missions. God has done amazing thingsfor eleven years through our children’s prayers and offerings totaling $694,851.64. Thanks be to God!

The new Home Mission kids c.a.r.e. project for 2018-2019 that will be launched in June at the Annual LWMS Convention in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is called Kids Summer Bible Camps. In an attempt to attract more children, mission churches are using camps focused on activities like music, sports, art, and computer coding. Offerings received for kids c.a.r.e. between June 2018 and May 2019 will provide monetary assistance to home missions as they develop, advertise, and implement their various Bible camps.  
 
To encourage and assist Lutheran elementary schools, early childhood centers, and other Christian ministry programs for children to adopt this mission project, we have developed three days of lesson plans and activities at two levels of instruction. Our writers who are WELS teachers adapted and expanded lessons based on the Christ-Light curriculum, so this project can be easily integrated with lessons already being taught during the year. 

Please consider using this program to train the children in your care to care about reaching everyone with the gospel of our Lord. Thank you for your prayers and any way you choose to support the kids c.a.r.e. project.
