"In addition to Bible studies, children will visit with missionaries representing both the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board," Bradley said. "Children will also participate in worship sessions, games and recreation, crafts and mission projects. These Bible study and missions experiences will show children that they are a part of God's story and have a place in His story."
The cost is $40 per child. In addition, there is a $10 non-refundable registration fee per child. Snacks will be provided; lunch will not. Parents will need to pick up their children both days at the conclusion of the morning session.

The youth will serve through hands-on missions projects in Baltimore," said Kristy Carr, National WMU Ministry Consultant and Youth on Mission coordinator. "Each morning mission studies will be presented by both International Mission Board and North American Mission Board missionaries."
