Each week, children's missions leaders read a multi-page lesson and choose what will fit their group, their church, and their community. Some leaders always choose the same pieces of the lesson to teach.

Children’s Missions Open House

Coming attractions, sneak peeks, and previews—we all want to feel like a part of a select group of people who have an insider's view of what's to come. Use that desire to your advantage and plan an Open House for your children's missions group.
