June 2018 Editor’s Notes

Hello, First Look Friends!

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!

Week one, we’ll introduce the idea of the Bible lighting our path with Psalm 119:105. With multiple flashlight activities, preschoolers will encounter a visual representation of the Bible showing us the way to go. Whenever we don’t know which way to go, we can look to the Bible to show us the way.

In week two, preschoolers will hear how John 13:34-35 tells us to love one another. And, one another means everyone, not just our best friends. The Bible tells me to look for ways to help others. Helping others is a concrete way to show love. And, we can always find ways to help each other.

During week three, preschoolers will learn that the Bible tells us we can pray to God anytime, anywhere, and about anything. Through Jeremiah 29:12, they will also learn that when we pray, He hears us. We want our preschoolers to know that no matter where they’re headed, they can always talk to God about it.

Week four is difficult for our preschoolers, but important for them to hear. Through Acts 2:45, preschoolers will hear how those in the Early Church shared their stuff and that we can too. Sharing isn’t always an easy road to ride on, but it’s always the right way to go.

So, get geared up to hop on your bike or trike so you can spend the next two months with your preschoolers learning that the Bible tells us which way to go.

Manny and Harper are in our clubhouse this month on the Wonder! DVD, and they’re riding their bikes and trikes! The DVD 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 Story section of the curriculum.

June’s Preview Video is available in the June download­—it is located in the week one Prelude file. 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 as you give preschoolers a “first look” at the God who made them, loves them, and wants to be their friend forever.
