December 2018 Editor’s Notes

Happy birthday, Jesus! Yes, we know that Christmas is all about Jesus’ birthday, but do your preschoolers know? It will be a new idea to some of them. We have the best jobs in the world because we get to share with preschoolers for the first time that Christmas is all about Jesus’ birthday!

Christmas 2018 :: Happy Birthday Jesus Party Bag

We’re having a Birthday Bash this year in First Look, and we want to send the party home!

Christmas 2018 :: Curriculum Extras

When you download your December materials, you will see a file marked “Christmas Extras.” In the Premium Tier, it’s in the Groups folder right under Large Group. In the Starter Tier, it’s in Week One right under Home.

The Honor of that First Look

I will never forget May 17, 1989 at 9:34 P.M. That is when I got my first look at my first born baby boy. A video plays in my mind of my husband bringing him to me all wrapped in a warm blanket with his big blue eyes darting around at all the lights in the delivery room. That moment was surreal. That moment was sacred.

First Look Weekday

We are so excited to announce the addition of a Weekday Curriculum for our preschool leaders, teachers and friends! In fact, we have not one, but two amazing components to share with you.

Volunteer Pre-Service Pep Talk for December 9, 2018

Sunday mornings can go at a fast and furious pace. If we aren’t strategic, we can miss key relational connections. Gather your team of volunteers for a brief gathering before the serving begins. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion before praying for the day: God loved the world so much that He sent His ONLY Son to us. Jesus, Emmanuel, God WITH us. Jesus’ entrance into this world came in the most unlikely way, in the humblest... read more

Setting the Stage – The Market (January 2019)

One of the wonderful things about preschoolers is they know they have needs and they are not afraid to let you know. That’s a good thing and something we want to use to help preschoolers see another need they have – a need we all have – and that is Jesus. Yes, I need Jesus is the focus this month. And, we know from experience that the older preschoolers get, the more they will need Jesus. Life can be tough. Having a friend like Jesus who knows us, loves us, and has the power to help us can... read more

February 2019 Editor’s Notes

Hello, First Look Friends! We can’t think of a better time to teach preschoolers about how much Jesus loves them than February—the month of love! And how much does Jesus love preschoolers? Well, the same as He loves you and me—A LOT! In fact, there is nothing wider or longer or higher or deeper than the love Jesus has for you and the preschoolers in your life. This month, our goal is for preschoolers to know Jesus loves them, and that nothing will ever change that. To do that, we’ve planned... read more
