January 2019 Editor’s Notes

Preschoolers know they have needs and they are not afraid to let you know. That’s a good thing and something we want to use to help preschoolers see another need they have—a need we all have—and that is Jesus.

Christmas 2018 :: Curriculum Extras

When you download your December materials, you will see a file marked “Christmas Extras.” In the Premium Tier, it’s in the Groups folder right under Large Group. In the Starter Tier, it’s in Week One right under Home.

The Honor of that First Look

I will never forget May 17, 1989 at 9:34 P.M. That is when I got my first look at my first born baby boy. A video plays in my mind of my husband bringing him to me all wrapped in a warm blanket with his big blue eyes darting around at all the lights in the delivery room. That moment was surreal. That moment was sacred.

First Look Weekday

We are so excited to announce the addition of a Weekday Curriculum for our preschool leaders, teachers and friends! In fact, we have not one, but two amazing components to share with you.

Volunteer Pre-Service Pep Talk for February 3, 2019

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: Of all the encounters Jesus had during his time on earth, what a thrill to have this encounter recorded for us. When the disciples thought that children wouldn’t be... read more

Learning to Listen

Recently Deb Springer wrote a blog post about preschoolers learning through play. I would like to take that a step further and share with you how God taught ME through play. I LOVE word games! When I was a little girl I would always go buy a word search game before my family traveled. I would spend the entire trip with my nose in my book searching for the elusive words. My favorite Christmas gift one year was a Deluxe Scrabble board that was on a rotating base. I LOVED that game! It is put... read more
