Hello First Look Friends!
We are continuing our theme of love into March with the Bottom Line “Jesus loves everyone.” He does. He loves us even when we feel like nobody else does as He shows the woman at the well. He loves us even when we’ve made some very poor choices like Zacchaeus. Jesus loves us. Wow! Think about how the little hearts of our preschoolers can be impacted by that information. Even when we mess up, He still loves us. And, Zacchaeus shows us that accepting His love can transform us.
Later in the month, we will introduce the idea that because Jesus loves us, we should spread His love through the story of the Good Samaritan. This is a favorite story among the preschool set (because of the Band-Aids I think), and such a great lesson for them. The love of Jesus needs to be shared. Our final week encourages them to go and tell others about Jesus’ great love. What an amazing month!

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

Tip of the Month: Preschoolers love Band-Aids, which is why the Good Samaritan story is one they will always remember. Start collecting Band-Aids early. Watch for sales and check for coupons. You can even invite the families in your congregation to donate a box.
