Our church seeks to instruct our children, youth and adults about missions here in the United States and around the world. To help facilitate this, our church primarily uses the WMU curriculum to learn about missions, become involved in missions, and live a missional lifestyle.
In Mission Friends® preschoolers begin to understand the missions concepts of praying, giving, and doing missions. They progress from a focus on self to a focus on others. They become aware that not everyone knows about God’s love. Preschoolers learn how they can help others in need.
Girls in Action (GA) and Children in Action
Children are active and inquisitive. They begin to ask questions about the Bible, Jesus, and the church. GA® and Children in Action® groups help them become aware of God’s love for them and to understand that He loves all people everywhere. They recognize people who have needs and realize God can help them meet those needs.
