Our children’s missions event, JAM, is coming your way this fall through an event box that contains plans for a “Jammin’ in a Box” event that includes all of the JAM components you’re used to finding at the one day in-person event. The JAM event box will provide plans, ideas, tips, and instructions to help you have a successful JAM at your church on your chosen date(s) and in a time frame that is easily adaptable to what best works for you. You may choose to hold a Saturday event or spread the JAM SESSIONS over several nights or even weeks. Items included in each box:

  • Leader’s Guide Notebook – leader guide has been designed so that ALL JAM Sessions complement the others.
    – Introduction & Overview
    – Jammin’ Bible Study bridges the Isaiah 6:8 theme verse with Jesus’ final words to His followers where He essentially sent them into the world to preach His gospel.
    – Jammin’ Missions Games teach how missionaries look at a people’s interests and needs to share the Gospel.
    – Jammin’ Meet a Missionary Family story and link to a video.
    – Jammin’ Missionary Activities focus on being a missionary and praying for missionaries.
    – Jammin’ Crafts provide several projects to extend the learning.
