Families on Mission

Give flowers

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.

Blessing Bags

As a family, make several blessing bags to distribute to needy people who are asking for money at intersections. Use a gallon-sized ziplock bag and pack the following items in the bag:

  • bottled water
  • socks
  • tuna and cracker snack packs
  • granola bars
  • fruit snacks
  • peanut butter or cheese crackers
  • travel-size hand sanitizer
  • plastic utensils
  • napkins


Say to your preschooler: Jamie Thompson helps many people in Chicago. Our family can help people in our city by giving these bags to those in need.
