Families on Mission

Sharing God's love together is sure to ignite a lifelong passion for missions in your family! Use these resources at home to reinforce what preschoolers are learning at church. Talking about and praying for missionaries will spark creative ideas for helping others in your own community.  

WMU has developed resources that can help your family reach out to others.

Where Can I Be Kind?

Jesus was kind to people and helped them. Jesus wants people to love and help each other. I can be kind and help others like Jesus did. People everywhere need to know about Jesus.

We want to tell people about Jesus (see Acts 4:20).

Print the Play and Learn Page August 2017activity page and cut apart the cards. Each of the cards features a place where preschoolers can be kind and help others. Choose the places with which your child will be most familiar and attach those cards together with a key ring or twist tie. There are blank cards so that you can customize a set for your child.

Look together at the cards with your child. Ask: How can you be a helper at (name of place)?

Remind your child that Jesus wants us to love and help each other. Say: We can be kind and help others, too, just like Jesus did!
