How Your Family Can Live a Missional Summer

There's a misconception that in order to do missions as a family, you have to go somewhere or your church has to organize it. But I'm going to let you in on a little secret: that couldn't be further from the truth! Now, don't get me wrong—missions trips are amazing, and your church can be a great resource; but that is not the only way to do missions. Living your life on mission means turning your community into your missions field.

As leaders, parents, and family members, is it our duty to not only teach our kids how to live a life on mission, but to show them as well. Missional living starts right where we are. And if where we are is our hometown, then that's where we need to do missions. Summer is the perfect time to do it!

Talking to Parents

talking to parents

A preschooler’s parent might say to you, “Let me know what I can do to help.” Talk with this parent about being involved by giving a hand with Helping Others activities for preschoolers. We want preschoolers to have experiences in making things or doing things to share Jesus’ love with others. Planning and organizing Helping Others activities is a perfect way to involve a parent in helping in their preschooler’s activities at church.
