Missions Read-a-Thon


The Missions Read-a-Thon is a fall reading program for children at Atlanta’s First Baptist Church. Kids receive a point for each book they read about missions from the church’s library. If they read at least two books, the church gives them a Kids of Courage Bold Believers activity book.

Kids receive additional points for participating in a Christian mission’s shoebox project, and for meeting missionaries who come to the church’s annual missions conference. Last year, 37 missionaries were part of the conference!

Kids were able to enter a prize drawing for each point earned. Prizes included globes and missions-related items.

“I pray that we will be able to continue to create an interest in missions throughout the coming year,” said Martha D., the church librarian.
