May 2018 Editor’s Notes

We see works of art every day that have a Maker and a plan. We pass them on the street, at work, and every Sunday they play around our feet. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Yes, I’m talking about people!

He Calls Me By Name

I adore spending time with my twin granddaughters.  It is so hard to have them live fifteen hours away, but when I get a chance to visit, I make the most of it!

Community Matters

Recently I spent several days at a quilting retreat with some friends. It was so much fun, and as I looked back over the retreat, several thoughts came to mind.

Refresh

I’m not into New Year’s Resolutions.

I know, goals are good. They keep us on track. They make us better.

But this year instead of making resolutions, I’ve decided to ask myself this question, “What areas in my ministry or life need some refreshing?”

Volunteer Pre-Service Pep Talk for April 8, 2018

Sunday mornings can go at a fast and furious pace. If we aren’t strategic, we can miss key relational connections. Gather your team of volunteers for a brief gathering before the serving begins. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion before praying for the day: Have you ever received some really GOOD news?

Setting the Stage – Work of Art (May 2018)

People are God’s works of art. He is our maker. And, He has a plan for each of us. Every neighbor. Every preschooler. Every parent. God has a plan for all of us, because He made us and loves us. We want to teach our preschoolers this month that God has a plan for them. Imagine how much better the lives of our preschoolers and, well, all of us could be if we lived like God has a plan for us, and that God’s plan is always best. We would be the complete Works of Art that God created us to be. The... read more

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... read more
