What to Do for a Fifth Session of Mission Friends

First Steps 23

Sometimes you just need more to do with Mission Friends. Perhaps you meet on Sunday, the month has a fifth session, but Mission Friends Leader has only 4 sessions, based on Wednesday meetings.

For Interest Areas:

  • Use the Extra Activities on pages 41 and 42 of Summer Mission Friends Leader.

  • See pages 81–87 in First Steps in Missions, vol. 23, for additional activities and information about church planting in Germany.

  • Preschoolers can role-play some of the ministry activities mentioned in the unit.

  • Look in the other age groups in Mission Friends Leader for activities your preschoolers might enjoy.

  • Discuss the Summer Mission Friends Leader Picture Set Pictures 5–8 in more detail. Talk about the people and places. What is happening in each picture?

  • Reuse Summer Mission Friends Leader Kit items preschoolers particularly enjoyed. If you have more than 1 age group, you might swap kit items to use in the fifth session.


For Group Time:

  • Invite someone who has traveled to Germany to share experiences and photographs appropriate for preschoolers.

  • Repeat a Group Time activity and story from the sessions in Mission Friends Leader.

  • Have preschoolers use puppets to act out a story, or give them the opportunity to dramatize one of the stories.


We hope this helps meet your needs for a fifth session.
