For many years we encouraged children in DOVE USA churches to collect money once a year for a specific overseas missions outreach. This year we invite our children to focus on the needs of families nearer home in USA. Children can make gift bags for both children and adults in need. Suggested items are listed below. For a brief video which explains more and may be shown to your church, click here.
