Setting the Stage – Jesus is #1 (April 2017)

Jesus is #1! He’s the best! We’re so excited to celebrate Him this month. And, that’s what you’re environment should look like—a celebration. Think a tailgate party with foam fingers and pom-poms and pennants that say “Jesus is #1.” Or, how about jumping off the theme art and filling the walls with stars of all colors and sizes.
