What Do Preschoolers Need Spiritually?

We know preschoolers need healthy food and good exercise to grow physically. They need to explore, question, and use their senses to grow mentally.

So, what do preschoolers need in order to grow spiritually?

Mission Friends at Home Has a New . . . Home

“Mission Friends at Home” has moved to a magazine near you!

You’ll no longer have to subscribe to an additional resource to get the “Mission Friends at Home” content you love to send home with your preschoolers.

Make Jesus the Focus in Teaching Preschoolers

During VBS one year, one of the teachers taught in our church’s VBS in the morning and then taught children in VBS at a Spanish church in the evenings. She took her 10-year-old son to VBS at both churches. The evenings were a repeat of the activities he had done in the mornings.

Moving Up to Children’s Missions

You can probably tell that they aren’t kindergartners any more. Now these Mission Friends seem a little bit taller and wiser, and they are looking forward to becoming first-graders with the upcoming school year.

Others in My Community

Birmingham Alabama

Last week I looked out across the city of Birmingham from the tower that is the base of the Vulcan statue, which is the symbol for the city and reflects Birmingham’s background in the iron and steel industry. The statue is at the top of Red Mountain. From the tower you can look out over the city in the valley below to see the hospitals, churches, synagogue, university buildings, airport, homes, roads, schools, and the tall buildings of downtown. You also see the trees and rolling mountains on all sides. It is a wonderful view of this community at the southern end of the Appalachians.

During July we focus on the Christian concept area of community in Mission Friends. In talking with preschoolers about community, this relates to the people who live near me in my town or neighborhood. As we talk about the Hmong people in Southeast Asia, we will focus on the strong communities they develop.

The Flying Mission Friend

I met Andrew at a retirement for a friend. Andrew is a grown-up Mission Friend who was also involved in Children in Action and Youth on Mission and served on multiple missions trips. As a freshman in high school, he was asked to teach Mission Friends at his church.

Others in the World

“You mean they don’t have a church to go to?” One of our preschoolers asked this question as we talked about the special workers during the recent Mission Friends unit on North Africa and the Middle East.

Praying for Child #14

I don’t know her name, but I have prayed for child #14 since the beginning of this school year. At that time, a friend from my church, who teaches Kindergarten in public school, posted on Facebook to ask friends to cover her class of 19 children in prayer through the year.
