The Save Our Children Fund Drive is the lifeline of the Children’s Ministries on both the district and international levels. It is one of the youngest divisional fund drives in the UPCI (began in 1973). The UPCI Children’s Ministries is aiming to raise 1.8 million dollars in 2018; Atlantic Kids has a district goal of $20 000 to support that international effort.
Every child that fund-raises $500 individually for Save Our Children will receive VIP status (a free registration to Atlantic Kids Camp, a VIP t-shirt, and “front of the line” privileges). Every church in the Atlantic District will receive the equivalent of a free Kids Camp registration for every $1000 (exclusive of VIP Kids funds) that it gives to Save Our Children.
Half of all S.O.C. funds stays within the Atlantic district for the promotion and advancement of local Children’s Ministries.
