Object lesson - Mission Sunday: ‘Link with the visiting missionary’

Creating a real link between the congregation and the missionary

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 third idea:

How can you make an actual link between the church and the visiting missionary?

Ask the question:

‘How can you bring far away things close by’? See, I’m standing at this end of the church and at the other end is our visitor this morning (this is the guest who’s going to talk about mission, or the visiting missionary). I’m here and they are there. How can we make a connection?
