Children Matter! Count the Kids!

Every year we ask your Unions to tell us the number of Children in each Local Conference/Mission. The Unions then send this data on to us to evaluate and send to the General Conference. Contact your local Conference/Mission and make sure they know how many kids are at your church! This data is helpful for allocating resources and highlighting the needs of our Church.

Family & Children’s Week of Prayer

In September,  a week is set aside for global family and children’s week of prayer. During this week we want to encourage you and your families to pray as a family. Get creative, bring back family meal times, family conversation, activities in the great outdoors and create some lifelong memories with your family in a manner that is culturally appropriate.

Closer to the time please visit the Record website to download the week of prayer readings. We will also be developing some resources which will be available for families and Churches to use for this special week. Keep an eye out closer to the date for these on our Facebook page and website.

Children Matter! Count the Kids!

Every year we ask your Unions to tell us the number of Children in each Local Conference/Mission. The Unions then send this data on to us to evaluate and send to the General Conference.

Why do we collect the reports?

We are a part of a global church with diverse needs and one mission ”To call all people to become disciples of Jesus Christ, to proclaim the everlasting gospel embraced by the three angel’s messages of Revelation 14:6-12, and to prepare the world for His soon return.” To support the decision making at the General Conference they ask the Divisions to collect statistics, these statistics are then reviewed to help allocate funding, staffing and highlight the needs for our children globally in our church. Make sure your local Conference or Mission knows how many kids are at you Church!
