Say What? Missionary Trading Cards
Missionary Trading Cards
One of the perks of visiting hundreds of churches is gathering ideas for an assortment of occasions. When we were shown these missionary trading cards at Lighthouse Baptist Church we were impressed! This idea is just too good not to share it with you. Here is how it works:
- The church makes a trading card for each supported missionary.
- Each night the children receive X amount of cards so that by the end of the conference they have the opportunity to collect the entire collection.
- If they eventually have each card in the collection signed by the missionary they receive $$$ towards a mission trip!
Pretty awesome. We also like that everyone has a card for the supported missionaries with contact information. So many times new church members don’t have prayer cards for every missionary the church supports. The trading cards help to put a face with the name and gives all the information in a neat stack. We hope you like this idea as much as we do!
Sunday was a busy day. We shared our ministry with Harmony Baptist Church in the morning. In the afternoon we made a quick stop to visit Anna’s grandmother before heading to Emory Heights Baptist Church. Anna’s grandfather pastored this church many years ago. Hearing the testimonies of how her grandfather, Perry Mayton, influenced many lives was a great blessing! It was encouraging to have them take us on for support following the meeting.
