July 2018 Editor’s Notes

Are you having as much fun on your bikes and trikes as we are? We’re going to keep riding our bikes and trikes right into the month of July—only we’ll be switching gears with a new bottom line.

2018-2019 Scope and Cycle

Hello First Look Friends!
We are so excited to reveal our 2018-2019 Scope and Cycle.

Taking Off the Training Wheels

How many of you can remember this day? Either as a parent or as a child you have more than likely experienced the joy AND panic of . . . the day the training wheels came off.

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!

We’re even more excited about our bottom line as we set sail to teach preschoolers that God’s way is perfect. When you think about it, there are tons of different ways we can go in life.

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.
