A question often asked by kids’ pastors is, “How do I inspire my kids to give?” In most cases, kids will respond very readily when presented with a need and with some options on how to fill that need. Their hearts are tender, and they are quickly filled with a desire to share what they have with those less fortunate.

Get your kids ready for March Missions Madness! Every year during the month of March, BGMC runs its annual challenge called “March Missions Madness—Lost Change for Lost Souls.” The month of March was chosen because National BGMC Day is the second Sunday in March. For 2017, it’s March 12. The BGMC theme for 2017 is “Above & Beyond…with BGMC” based on the verse, “Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20, HCSB).
How do you set a new goal for BGMC for the year? One idea is to spread the responsibility. Gather your children’s leaders, and ask each of them for a personal goal. Also ask your leaders to brainstorm together on how to set a BGMC goal and how each person can assist you in accomplishing this goal.
