Alliance Kids

Alliance Kids debuted Discovery Land curriculum for children (infants–sixth grade) as well as the One Page! Alliance Kids is partnering with Discovery Land to add weekly Alliance Missions content to the rich, biblical component of Discovery Land curriculum so that Alliance kids across the country can learn the DNA of the C&MA, hear about Alliance projects and international workers around the world, and experience how they, too, fit into Great Commission living! We really do believe in All of Jesus for All the World, and that includes children!

RMD is offering a $200 grant to churches purchasing the Discovery Land curriculum, and a $100 grant for purchasing One Page!.  To request a grant please send proof of purchase to Scott Thorson at the District Office.
