Setting the Stage – Hop To It (May 2019)

What would you do if you were assigned a huge building project to manage? Or told to step into the leadership role for an entire nation where every person would depend on you to make the right decisions? How about helping someone else accomplish a big job where you’re not going to get much recognition? Or, do the one thing you would be most afraid of doing, while everyone you know watches?

Hello, First Look Friends! Have you ever played PAC-MAN? (Yes, that PAC-MAN game from the 1980s—it’s still around.) The best part of that game is eating the large power pellets.

Setting the Stage – MADE (March 2019)

This month, we will begin laying the foundation for some very important future conversations around the subject of sexual integrity. Before we ever talk with kids and teens about what to do and not do with their bodies, we need to start with who made their body and why that makes them so valuable. And a great place to start is now, in the preschool years, with this simple but powerful truth—God made me. Preschoolers need to learn now that they are wonderfully made by God, in His image. This...
