Ideas for a Fifth Session of Mission Friends

Mission Friends Leader

Sometimes you just need more to do with Mission Friends. It might be that you meet 5 times a month and there are only 4 sessions in Mission Friends Leader, what do you do?

 

Teaching in the Interest Areas

Classroom

Do you remember the show where a design team did makeovers of entire houses? Wouldn’t it be dreamy if there was a show for Extreme Mission Friends Classroom Makeovers? You would have to send a video showing your current Mission Friends classroom, and an early childhood design team would come to re-make it into an awesome space. They would set up all the interest areas in a way that preschoolers thrive in learning about missions. Imagine your tears of joy at the big reveal at the end of the show. All you could repeat saying is, “Wow!”

Keeping Healthy

What measures can you take to help keep preschoolers and teachers healthy?

 

 

Project HELP: Refugees

Refugee Women

Be kind and show love to others (see Lev. 19:33–34).

As we focus on refugees for our critical issue of Project HELP, how do we guide our preschoolers to understand about refugees? How do we explain about refugees without frightening preschoolers or causing misconceptions about refugees?

Focus on WMU

Focus on WMU

February 11–17, 2019

With Unshakable Pursuit as the theme for Focus on WMU, churches are encouraged to emphasize the value of WMU to your church. Include Mission Friends as a part of Focus on WMU in your church in the following ways.

Teaching Babies, Ones, and Twos: Separation Anxiety

Crying baby

You see his lips quiver and his eyes well up with tears. This 9-month-old has never cried before when his parents brought him to the baby room at church. All of a sudden, he bursts into tears when his mom hands him into your arms. You recognize that he is going through separation anxiety. This is a tough stage for the preschooler to go through, but it marks another milestone in his mental development which also has an impact on spiritual development.

Giving to Missions

As the time for giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering  is on my mind, I have been thinking about how we teach preschoolers about giving to missions. In this world of online banking, direct deposit, debit and credit cards, how do we begin teaching preschoolers about financial giving?

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.

Preschool Missions Focus

Mission Friends is an ongoing missions discipleship organization for preschool boys and girls (birth through kindergarten). Through Mission Friends, preschoolers . . .

  • become aware that God wants everyone to know of His love
  • move from a focus on self to a focus on others
  • apply Bible thoughts to their lives as they learn to pray, give, and help others.
  • and their families learn of ways to give their time, talents, and money
