Object lesson - Mission Sunday: ‘I am off on a journey’

What has a suitcase to do with Mission Sunday?

Maybe it’s nearly Mission Sunday, or you have a visiting missionary who’s going to give a talk. In this series of twelve ideas we’re going to be looking at ways to illustrate this. The first six ideas can be used for various children’s moments, and the last six ideas are a complete Sunday School programme on the subject of mission.


In this second idea:

How do you introduce Mission Sunday or a visiting missionary in a creative way? How do you show that this morning you’re going to bring something very close that is actually far away?

Bring a large suitcase with you to church, and a basket full of objects. some of which you might take if you were going on a journey.
