"I promise to learn, pray & serve with the worldwide Church of Jesus Christ" - The JMA Promise
JMA helps leaders bring a global dimension to their children's programme through 3 activity sessions with a project focus.
Each year children in the Methodist Church in Ireland raise over £30,000/€35,000 for a special project.
JMA 2017 - FREE Project Pack
MMS(Ireland) produces the pack and coordinates the project. The theme for 2017 is 'Learn, Pray, Serve: Ghana'.
The pack is now available. All JMA Secretaries should have recieved them.
Organising a JMA service
When organising your JMA service, there are plenty of ideas in the JMA pack each year.
- Rainbow: free sets of a colour magazine for children (issued in September, January and April). Rainbow is sent from the Methodist Church in Britain.
- JMA pack: a free activity pack from MMS(I) focusing on this year's world church project.
- Badges, ribbons, collector's boxes/cards and certificates to encourage children to collect for the project.
