BGMC Stands for
Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge
“BGMC is the AG missions program for kids that instills a heart of compassion to reach the lost through praying, giving, and going. All funds raised through BGMC go to meet critical needs around the world such as feeding programs, water wells, Bible schools, curriculum, and whatever else a missionary needs in their part of the world.”
At LifeChurch, we believe it is fundamental for children to learn about and participate in the Great Commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
To accomplish this we do several things:
- Each month, the childre learn about a new country supported by BGMC. This is done through videos, powerpoint presentations and take-home newsletters. We also take time to PRAY for that country, it’s people and their needs.
- Every child receives a “Buddy Barrel” to collect their offering.
- Every week, children bring their offering.
We also encourage their participation through things like stickers, contests and prizes. During 2018, each child is encouraged to bring $1 every week for a total of $52 for the year. We have bank books and posters where the children can keep track of their giving. Every child who reaches the goal of raising $52 for missions will take part in a special “BGMC Limo Party” during January 2019.
