It is never too young to learn about missions. Mission Friends, the WMU organization for children from birth to prefirst grade, helps young children begin to learn about God and His love, and about becoming one of God's "helpers" here on earth. Mission Friends builds a foundation for children to understand God's plan for their lives.
The children of today are the missions leaders of tomorrow; WMU encourages children to learn about God's love, become aware of the needs of others, learn the importance of prayer; and start doing missions themselves. Girls in Action is the organization for girls in grades 1-6; Royal Ambassadors is the organization for boys in grades 1-6.
WMU offers opportunities for Christians to meet together for Bible study, witnessing, learning about world issues, and participating in missions projects. Through Women on Mission, the organization for women aged 18 and over; and Adults on Mission, for women and men, WMU offers Christians opportunities for fellowship, ministry, witness to others, and personal spiritual growth.
