Preschool

For Preschool Leaders

Why begin missions education in the preschool years? Because the significance of a strong foundation based on biblical truths cannot be overestimated. It's important to learn about God and His love for all people at a young age.

Extending the Story: Always Remember to Pray

Preschooler praying

One of our purposes in Mission Friends is to teach preschoolers about prayer and lead them to pray for missions. Always Remember to Pray  is a great tool to use to help preschoolers learn that they can talk to God at any time and in any place. As you teach preschoolers about missions, this leads to opportunities to pray with preschoolers. They learn about prayer as they hear the needs of other people and hear prayer requests of missionaries.

To persevere and never give up

Lovelace family

Ken and Lygia Lovelace start every day in God’s Word and prayer. They are church planters serving the Lord in St. Louis, and have 10 children, 5 biological and 5 adopted. “Two of our sons are grown and gone, 8 of our children have been with us and have helped start this church (Amazing Love Community), since the beginning,” shared Ken. The Lovelaces have a mixed family, with 3 African American children. “God has used our family to open positive doors among the racial tension here,” said Lygia.

Anticipating Christmas in August

Do you remember the anticipation you felt as a child on the days leading up to Christmas? You tried to be good by being nice to others. You tried not to fight with your brother and sister. You kept looking at the tree in your living room, and wondered what packages would be under the tree on Christmas day. You wrote your list way before Christmas, and now waited to see if the things on your list would show up under the tree.

By All Means

3 Hearts

While walking in my neighborhood, I passed by a rock on the curb. I stopped and went back a couple steps to pick it up. It definitely looked like a heart shape. The next day at our office building, there was a table of squishy hearts to take one as a free giveaway. I also found a woven paper heart in the closet with our art supplies. These are a few different objects that are heart-shaped, but they look quite different from one another. The squishy heart is smooth and soft, and it is easy to hold in your hand and squeeze. The paper heart is cleverly made by weaving two colors of paper together. The rock is rough and dusty with lines and jagged edges.
