Mission Friends
Leader: Angie Wood

Mission Friends is the preschool organization of WMU based at a local church, child care, weekday program, home, or preschool. It is designed for preschoolers, birth through kindergarten. Its main goal is to teach missions attitudes and concepts to all preschoolers.

In Mission Friends, preschoolers participate in developmentally and age-appropriate learning activities and experiences that help set the beginning stage for a missions lifestyle.

Preschoolers learn by doing. As they participate in activities that provide repetition, stir curiosity, create a sense of accomplishment, help develop relationships, encourage investigation, and use their senses, they learn to help others, work together, pray, give, and tell others about God's love and His Son, Jesus.

Through example, imitation, modeling, activities, stories, cultural items, prayer, patience, and love, Mission Friends learn missions attitudes and concepts and the foundations of faith.

Because preschoolers learn differently at various stages and ages, Mission Friends provides learning experiences for four age levels: Younger Mission Friends (babies), Middle Mission Friends (ones and twos), Older Mission Friends (threes and fours), and Kindergarten (fives and preschool sixes).

We meet every Wednesday night during the school year from 6:45-7:30 PM.
