To create a visual expression for the children in spreading God's Word
The children will understand that they are part of Jesus' mission too.
Instead of using preprinted pieces of paper, the children could write ?We are the Church? or ?We are God's People? on the popsicle sticks.
If time allows, have the children explain their illustrated activities.
If there is a child who doesn't enjoy drawing, find another medium. (cutting out pictures from a magazine, writing it down)
