What about Lottie Moon?

How do you help preschoolers understand who Lottie Moon was and why we give to missions through an offering in her name?

In Honor of Lottie

She sailed across the sea
To a land so far away.
She left behind her expected life,
When she heard what God had to say.

God placed a call on the heart
Of a woman named Lottie Moon.
She gave her answer faithfully,
And would arrive in China soon.

Getting to Know Lottie

Let’s face it. You know who Lottie Moon is. You know what the offering is all about. You know why it is important to pray for our missionaries. But, you’re reading this because you want other people to have the same urgency about these things as you.

Here are 7 fun and fresh ideas you may want to consider as you plan to promote and fundraise for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering:
