January 2017 Editor’s Notes

Hello, First Look Friends!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you had a fantastic Christmas season filled with joy and laughter and love. Now that our preschool friends have heard that Jesus was born, it’s time for them to learn that He is with them ALL THE TIME and He is all they need.

Throughout the month, our children will hear how Jesus was there for people in the past. He was there when the blind man needed Him. He was there when a man lowered from the roof by his friends on a mat needed Him. He was there to heal the deaf man and the lepers who needed Him. He was there to calm the storm when the disciples needed Him.

Just like He was there when all these people needed Him in the past, He will be there when we need Him in the future. That’s what we want to plant in the hearts of our preschoolers this month. Jesus is all we need, and He’s with us ALL THE TIME.

Maddy and Jaden are in our new clubhouse this month on the Wonder! DVD. It is available at The Orange Store, and you can even sign up for a monthly subscription. Use this DVD to supplement a live Storyteller and/or Host for the Make It True section of the curriculum.

January’s Preview Video will be on the First Look website. You can download the video and script from the matrix—it is located in the Monthly Visuals tab. If you’d like to embed the video into your church blog, we have it available on Vimeo. Feel free to share the vision with everyone!

Our team will be praying for you to have moments filled with wonder in 2017 as you give preschoolers a “first look” at the God who loves them, made them, and wants to be their friend forever.
