What does the Bible say about missions? Have your children learn the verses below to find out!

You might use these verses to design a Scripture learning program for your group. Or add verses to your missions learning experiences each week. Or you could challenge children to see how many verses they can learn in a year. The verses are divided into categories. Each verse includes a number (1-6) that suggests the grade for which it is most appropriate.

These numbers are just suggestions. Feel free to customize the list to fit your church’s needs.
