Project RED CARD Begins Sept. 8 (VIDEO)

In soccer when a player commits a serious infraction, such as a flagrant foul, they are expelled from the game by being shown a red card. With 1.2 billion children worldwide at risk someone needs to step in and hold up a red card calling for change. Project RED CARD is an ongoing justice awareness project for 4th grade students, their parents, and their older siblings*. Learning about children at risk is always heartbreaking, but it is inspiring to see what it can motivate in your child. At Mission, Micah 6:8 is always at the center of what we do. This is a chance for your 4th grade child to step into doing justice in a way that they can understand and feel passionate about.

Meeting the second Thursday of each month (beginning Sept. 8), this interactive class is geared to help families understand God's heart for children at risk.  Each month will focus on a different aspect of justice involving children around the world: poverty, children of war, orphans, street kids, child laborers, and those affected by HIV/AIDS.

*The serious content of this class may be inappropriate for younger children.
