The goal of the Children’s Table Initiative is to renew emphasis on transformative ministry with Children across the Conference, establish a foundation of Spiritual Formation that focuses on Biblical Justice and articulates a Theology of Child Advocacy, and connect conference resources.  By working together across the NIC UMC we can improve the daily lives of children, so they can live in an environment that is safe, healthy, protected and has accessible and equal opportunities for food, resources, education and healthcare.

Learn More About the Goals of the NIC Children’s Table in renewing an emphasis on transformative ministry with children across the conference. Twenty-five churches have already designated a Champion for Children! Consider how your congregation can join this important ministry network across the conference.

The Agencies, Boards, and Ministry Areas of the NIC who seek to serve and meet the needs of children within our Conference borders will be serving as support to local congregational efforts by resourcing this important initiative. (Board of Church and Society, United Voices for Children, ChildServ, Rosecrance, MYSI, United Methodist Women, United Methodist Men and the NIC Children’s Ministry).
