Families on Mission

Bible lacing page

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.

Play and Learn September 2017

Print this page onto card stock. Cut a 24-inch length of yarn or string and put tape around one end for a “needle.” Punch holes on the dot areas. Encourage your child to lace yarn into one hole and out of the next hole. As he laces the card, ask what word the letters spell.

Reinforce that the Bible is true and have your child name the Bible stories he remembers.
