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

5 Fun Facts about the Missionaries

  3. The Carter children enjoy going to Remedy Kids on Sunday mornings.

  4. Remedy City Church shows people they care as they help schools, libraries, and other groups have what they need. In the summer, Remedy City Church provides Kids Camp, movie nights in the park, and other activities for the community.

  5. Once, when the church learned that a school needed books for kindergarten classrooms, they helped raise money to buy books. Some of the children had a lemonade stand to help raise money.


Prayer Requests

  • Pray for strength, energy, and wisdom for Mr. and Mrs. Carter.
