June 2018 Editor’s Notes

This month, we’re going to start our ride through the Bikes and Trikes theme as we teach our preschoolers that the Bible tells us which way to go. How wonderful would it be if our preschoolers grew up using the Bible to light their way as they ride through life!

We are so excited to reveal our 2018-2019 Scope and Cycle.

Taking Off the Training Wheels

How many of you can remember this day? Either as a parent or as a child you have more than likely experienced the joy AND panic of . . . the day the training wheels came off.

He Calls Me By Name

I adore spending time with my twin granddaughters.  It is so hard to have them live fifteen hours away, but when I get a chance to visit, I make the most of it!

Volunteer Pre-Service Pep Talk for May 20, 2018

Taking Off the Training Wheels

How many of you can remember this day? Either as a parent or as a child you have more than likely experienced the joy AND panic of . . . the day the training wheels came off. In our nursery rooms, we have a few little riding toys that are close to the ground, very stable, and easy to maneuver. Even the youngest toddler can find a way to mount one of these toys and scoot around the floor. There is no need for fear. Just lots of fun scooting around the room. Very soon, however, legs get too long... read more

Setting the Stage – Bikes and Trikes (June 2018)

Have you ever used a compass to show you which way to go? They’re great for helping you on a hike, but not as great when we’re trying to figure out which way to go in life. We need the Bible for that.  This month, we’re going to start our ride through the Bikes and Trikes theme as we teach our preschoolers that the Bible tells us which way to go. How wonderful would it be if our preschoolers grew up using the Bible as their compass as they ride through life!  So, get geared up to hop on your... read more
