As mass media pushes a give me, give me mentality, many Christian parents struggle with helping their children understand the importance of missions and missional living. After all, with all of life’s demands, how can anyone find the time to teach their children about missions? In Missions Moments 2, Mitzi Eaker, mother and children’s missions education expert, provides parents with an easy-to-use teaching resource that fits within today’s busy schedule.
Missions Moments 2 is a convenient tool to guide parents as they help their children develop a proper biblical worldview. Parents will find 52 weeks of 5-minute missions messages each paired with a 15-minute application activity for children. Each lesson is written in a simple style so that parents can adapt the message to their children’s ages, maturity levels, etc. A Bible verse to memorize is also included for each week. And finally there’s a challenging “Make It Home” section that provides ideas for how to incorporate the week’s message into the life of the whole family.
Ideal for parents of elementary school-age children, Missions Moments 2 will bring your family together around God’s call to be the light of the world. Packed with a year’s worth of messages and service activities, you and your children won’t be the same after finishing this journey.
