Digital Template: Mission Friends Banner

Spark interest in Mission Friends with a fun printable banner. The banner will print at 3 feet long. Download the file, and send it to a printing service, such as an office supply store, to print on a banner printer. Here are some thoughts on ways to use your Mission Friends banner:

  • Hang the banner from the ceiling of a hallway in your preschool area at church.

  • Use it in a missions recognition service at the end of the church year.

  • Post it outside of your Mission Friends room to identify your classroom.

  • Display it on the wall of your Mission Friends classroom.

  • Post it on a bulletin board, along with the meeting day and time of your Mission Friends class.

  • Have it printed on heavy duty vinyl for an outdoor banner.
