Royal Ambassadors is a Bible-centered, church-based, Southern Baptist, mission education organization for boys in grades 1-5. A Royal Ambassador is committed to living out the RA Pledge:
As a Royal Ambassador I will do my best: to become a well informed, responsible follower of Christ; to have a Christ-like concern for all people; to learn how to carry the message of Christ around the world; to work with others in sharing Christ; and to keep myself clean and healthy in mind and body.
This pledge is part of personal and chapter (group of RAs) accountability.
The RA Motto, “We are Ambassadors for Christ,” not only gives the organization its name, but also gives the boys and leaders a lifestyle goal.
RA’s will be doing missions projects, camp outs, and racer competitions throughout the year.
Meetings: Wednesday Evenings 6:15 pm, in rooms 225B, 224B and 302A
Girls in Action, for girls in 1st-5th grades, meet each Wednesday evening from 6:15 to 7:00 to pray for missions, engage in mission actions and learn about missions. The girls grow in their knowledge and understanding and application of Bible scriptures. They experience hands-on mission activities through hearing real missionaries such as missionaries serving in Galati, Romania. Girls have participated in many mission activities such as walking to the fire station and praying with five of Newnan’s firefighters and assisting local families and children with food and school supplies. In November they will be packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. By hearing about missionaries and mission needs in many different places, the girls discover that God’s mission is worldwide. By doing missions, they learn their responsibility to change the world through our G.A Scripture Verse: “Give thanks to the Lord. Worship Him. Tell the nations what He has done. Announce how honored He is.” Isaiah 12:4.
