September 2018 Editor’s Notes

Hello, First Look Friends!

This month’s Colorific theme is going to help us teach preschoolers that God keeps His promises. We’ve all experienced a broken promise or two, and our preschoolers won’t have to wait long to experience one too. We want them to grow up knowing that God always keeps His promises. No matter how long we have to wait, God will come through.

And, when you know the One who does, there’s no need to worry. God’s got it. That’s what we’re talking about with our preschoolers this month. No need... read more

Volunteer Pre-Service Pep Talk for July 29, 2018

Then read the following devotion before praying for the day: One of your most important tasks as a small group leader is to make an introduction. Not to a book but to a person. You see, the Bible is a special book because the Bible... read more

August 2018 Volunteer Gift Printable

Volunteers—we can’t do ministry without them. They sing. They dance. They tell stories. They lead games. They have deep discussions. They act silly to keep children engaged.
